Marcellus Wiley, FIFA Beef, Vegan Soccer Team

"This is only a game. I'm Karen given. I spent the first morning of two thousand nineteen binge-watching old episodes of an eighty sitcom. It was a show that had it all a theme song sung by Allen Vic. A precocious child star. Who'd you, John and a laugh track? Why did I start my year out with this trip down memory lane? I blame this guy. I'm more sellers. Vernon Wiley these days Marcellus Wiley is a host for speak for yourself on Fox Sports the back in the eighties. He was just a kid growing up in Compton and south central LA before it became a song or an album or before became a movie, it was just life or death. I who used to be gang members. And and I saw how they were respected and feared in streets. But then I saw them coming to house are saw the tears, and I saw the weakness they didn't know how this was going to end. And unfortunately, too were murdered and one committed suicide Marsalis didn't want that life but to avoid it. He had to know what not to wear what not to say what streets to avoid. I just hated then to notice things was going to help me survive. But it wasn't gonna help me thrive in life. Wasn't gonna leave the neighborhood and set up my family and get generational wealth by no one what does the rate or hat really mean in hood, the idea that there was a different life outside the hood that there was such a thing as generational wealth. Marcellus learned about that by watching TV my favorite was different strokes. I've never seen a black golfie four. Okay. He never saw rich white man before that told me a lot told me that while there is a better place. There's a different place for eight seasons. Starting in nineteen seventy eight different strokes followed the lives of two orphan boys from Harlem who were adopted by their mothers, former employer I'm going to see that you had the same advantages that I had going up you're going to go to the best schools the finest colleges, but I didn't see the path that connected to me. Like, I didn't I didn't see how a was going to be attained by me, there was one feature of the family's penthouse in Manhattan that really stuck out for Marcellus the Cirque. Staircase in the kitchen and always told myself when I make it if I make it I'm gonna get me a circular stair. Will it was just the thing that I wanted Marcellus knew there was no rich white man coming to adopt ten he'd have to find a way to take himself and his family out of the hood. Luckily, when he was eight Marcellus found football and just like schoolwork, it was something that came naturally, you give me the ball. I was just gonna run circles around every other eight nine ten eleven twelve thirteen fourteen year old scoring four or five touchdowns a game. It was simple Marcellus news that a career in the NFL could get him to where he wanted to go. But I he had to get to college Marcellus started at Westchester high a public school with a great football program, he hoped that would be enough to attract the attention of college scouts, but by the end of his sophomore year. He had doubts a lot of people were underachieving based on how good they were all state all American players but going to community. College is not just like that. Can't be me. I was responsible for my family in terms of getting us out the neighborhood. So I just couldn't underachieve. So Marcellus transferred to a private school Saint Monica's in Santa Monica to get there every day. He'd catch a ride with his mother who worked at the post office. She dropped him off at the front gate by five forty seven every morning. So that she could get to work by six Marcellus would set himself up near the stairs by the gym. He'd sprawl out on an old sleeping bag to finish his homework. Your thoughts wander to good places when you're on campus? But you're not what your peers, you're not what your classmates, you know, what your teammates, you just kinda think you like what's next in life. But Marcellus is plan hit some snags. I there were his knees. He was in constant pain. Then the coach that had recruited Marcellus to come to Saint Monica's left for another school and took most of the team with him Marcellus thought about leaving too. But his mother wouldn't hear of it. She was like you're not going to three high schools in four years. You're not that kid as she was. Right. So. Marcella state at Saint Monica's for his senior year, and it was pretty disturbing. We were sorry HALE. We would a worst team. We were Owen ten on the field. Not the best way to get recruited. But it all worked out it worked out in part because of all those long mornings Marcella spent sprawled out on that sleeping bag by the stairs to the gym. He went from being a good student to being a very good student one good enough to get recruited by university. Not too far from that Manhattan penthouse on TV the first time. I heard of it. I actually saw it. It was all my coaches shorts. I just noticed a color at first I was like coach was Columbia. And that's where I went to college. I was like. Yeah. Yes. I v league school back east at the time. I b league only meant one thing to Marcellus Wiley those were the schools on the sweaters worn by Bill Cosby on the Cosby show. Oh, so it's like Harvard Yale Princeton these like trust me worse football program in a country. Don't even think about going there. But it's an amazing school only a year earlier Columbia University had finally broken the streak the longest losing streak in NCWA division one history. Forty four losses in a row Marcellus was being recruited by UCLA and cow Berkeley. But he found himself drawn to Columbia if his NFL dreams didn't work out. He knew a degree from an Ivy would open a lot of doors. So in the summer of nineteen Ninety-two Marcellus Wiley went to Columbia, but the Marcellus who left LA wasn't the same as the one who arrived in New York. So in the hood I was the nerd. I was the MVP. I was the nice, dude. I get to Columbia. I'm the big bad black dude from Compton. Ed just plays football. And I was like, whoa. That was a switch. I'm no different. But the backdrop changed. Just as Marcellus had been introduced a life in Manhattan penthouse through TV his classmates, some of whom arrived on campus via helicopter had been introduced a life in Compton and south central through the music of NWEA and the movie boys in the hood. They were fascinated by Marcellus they loved hearing his story of dodging bullets during a football game. But they didn't love the music. He played at all hours of the night. I had a hundred and seven noise complaints only one person had ever come to his door and asked him to turn down his music Marcellus figured the others must have been too scared to knock so I started to realize that you know, what? I need to find a way to to kind of break down these walls between my dorm mates. My classmates and myself and get through these stereotypes in pass them. And to do that Marcellus fell back on something. He had learned in eighth grade in typing class we were using old fashioned ch- typewriters at first Marcellus was just keeping up with other kids in the class. Fifteen words a minute than twenty than twenty-five then one day when Marcellus was in the car with his mom. He started visualizing the keyboard in his mind and typing out the names of the streets as they drove past our type house Lawson would type out edge mar type out Crenshaw LA brea, did not start just type out everything. I saw two weeks later in class everyone's round thirty five words per minute. And I was at forty five fifty then you look up again another few weeks, and I met sixty seventy next to you know, I was entered into some contest. I didn't know what it was turned out. It was the national typewriting championship. The competition was held somewhere in the valley an hour or so. Of LA nervous wasn't really geared up for didn't know how to get pumped up for typing championship. Like I have been in a football championship before at that age attract championship, but a type in championship. Whatever everyone was given the same document to type it was a letter. So they say, it's it go. At all you hear I. After one minute. The pages were collected Marcellus waited while judges counted. The number of words typed and deducted points for every error national type writing champion Marceau's one out of what type eighty two words a minute in the eighth grade when only one error it was amazing. So back at Columbia University sophomore year Marcellus was looking for something that would help him connect with his classmates something that would help them see him as something more than a black football player from the hood. When the hear me on a Deke bore one day. Whoa. Marceau's? You type could type Marcellus offered type paper his door mate had handwritten. He's like do. That's love man. Thank you gave me like five bucks soon. Marcellus was typing notes and term papers for other students in the dorm five bucks. A pop nothing to them. Nothing to me next to you know, people are knocking on my door casualty not just for a paper to be typed up with five dollars in hands. But just what you listen to Marceau's what you up to Marceau's house last week's game. And it really broke down a lot of barriers just using that skill. Marcellus figured his odds going pro out of the Ivy league were about the same as winning the Powerball and during his junior season. He struggled to adjust to a new position on the field. And he wasn't on track to graduate on time. So Marcellus went back to LA for a year. He took classes at a community college and hit the gym Marcellus. Wiley had come to Columbia as a six foot one one hundred eighty pound kick returner and running back. He return for his senior season as a six foot four two hundred sixty pound defensive end focused on two things graduate and make the NFL. The first big test. At least as far as football was concerned came during Columbia's preseason scrimmage with darkness. They had offense a tackle by the name of Brian Larsen and he was the first third round projected draft pick. And everyone knew it before the scrimmage the two teams lined up for drills, which meant Marcellus would go one on one against Larsson. No, oh, and I remember that I play I went at it ran right around him like e and even move, and I was like, whoa. And everybody was like, oh, good. Later as he was walking off the field. Marcellus was approached by an older black man in an era Zona cardinal's hat, and he said more sows, so yes. And he's like just wanna introduce myself to my name is bird the scout for Zona cardinals, my heart just dropped what? And he was like I saw what you did. Here today is like trust me on Mattel. Everybody about it. And I have a big mouth. And I was like, okay. Shook his hand never heard from him again in my life haven't seen him anywhere in my life since that moment, but he did have a big mouth because the next week at practice scout next week at the game scouts GM's, head coaches Bill Parcells my games. It was just from the top down. Everyone was checking out the guy at that little football program called Columbia Marcellus. Wiley senior year has been described as one of the finest seasons ever by Columbia full. Football player the team that had so recently lost forty four in a row posted an eight and two record on April nineteenth nineteen Ninety-seven when he was selected in the NFL draft by the Buffalo Bills Marcellus Wiley was in his family's one and a half bedroom. Home in south central LA, surrounded by his parents, sister, friends and television crew from CNN. What did that moment mean to you in your family, mid so many things, but I think in short it meant. Wow. We actually achieved one of our dreams, and it was very few things that we could point at in our world in our life. That was actually a dream realized. My mother didn't wake up say she wanted to be a postal employee. Just gave our entire family of steam like we actually did it. We actually materialize something that we wanted life changed not just for Marcellus and his sister and his parents, but also for his children and the children that they'll someday have it's that generational wealth that Marcellus learned about while watching different strokes back in the eighties. You're going to go to the schools the finest colleges only Marcellus 's kids, they don't have to make it in the NFL. They can just be whatever they desire and life will be good. And you better believe when Marcellus burnin Wiley bought his first home in buffalo via. Townhouse at the time that had a seculow staircase. Marcellus Wiley went onto play ten seasons in the NFL and work for eleven years as a broadcaster for ESPN before moving to foxsports last fall. His new book is called never shut up the life opinions and unexpected adventures of an NFL outlier. English soccer player. Kevin Allison wasn't happy. When his son told him about his ratings in the new fief of video game. Do says them we'll be places to scotch. That's coming up on only game from NPR.

Check it out and apple podcasts or NPR dot org slash life kit. I'm carrying given an it's time for three stories, you should know even making the tackle. Collapsing. Mississippi State running back Keilan hill took a hard hit to the head in Tuesday's outback bowl. And that's where we're going to start this week. I'm joined by the athletes, Michael Lee, and the Boston Globe SNorre prince yadi. Welcome back to both of you. Let it be back. Thanks, Karen, happy new year. Happy new year Keilan hill took a helmet to helmet hit in the outback bowl, which is a second tier bowl for third place teams. He struggled to get up staggered a bit on his way to the sidelines. Venice body went limp. He was helped to the ground and because nobody ever learns anything the team put him back in the game for the final play the team claims that he was just quote woozy that he never lost consciousness fine. Here's our best science on concussions. First of all it is incredibly dangerous to play a contact sport with a concussion. Also, you don't have to lose consciousness to have a concussion. And in fact, even sub concussive hits hits. The don't actually cause concussions can cause life long non-treatable brain injuries. We make ourselves feel better about the free labor that student athletes provide by claiming that we're giving them a free education in return. But what use is that if we don't also protect their brains, nor I completely agree with you. Karen, I believe the NC double A's concussion protocol is not quite actually as involved in terms of having independent doctors evaluating what might be a concussion symptom on the sidelines as the NFL's is. But in both cases, I think what's really important is for the framework to be such that if something even looks like it probably could be a concussion. You don't have to have someone forgetting where they are or you know, not passing through the protocol. Sometimes just the act of eight. Eight hit to the head should be a symptom of a concussion or assign that someone might have a concussion, so I would like to see team sort of Dopp that that philosophy that just taking the blow in and of itself is enough of a concussion factor to just play on the safe side. It was a meaningless Bogan. It didn't matter. Nothing matters. You know, the scale of the game of the important. I mean, the players health Chicago, even if it was a national championship game. But no one's gonna hang a banner over winning the outback bowl the moment. You saw the first sign of trouble you to sit him, and then just let it in. Yeah. And you know, just kind of coincidentally the Washington Post had peace out this week about how the CEO of the outback bowl is paid more than a million dollars a year. And meanwhile for putting his brain on the line Keilan hill received five hundred fifty dollars in gifts. Again, I know there are no easy solutions to this. But we need to do better. Michael you're up will for years w me players have fought for fair compensation from their league. The media players are sort of really restricted how much money they can earn on the court. But now this week Christie tolliver gar for the Washington mystics. She brought to light a new dilemma for WNBA players and at the not only restricted on the court. But if. They try to pursue things such as being an NBA assistant their salary is capped as well. She's paid just ten thousand dollars because the mystics in the Washington Wizards are both under the same umbrella. There players can only receive a fifty thousand dollar pool. Now, most of that money goes to their big star Alanna della, Don, which means she only gets what's left dis- really brought the light a really silly rule that the players agreed to Alaska player should not be paid like an intern. They should be paid as any other assistant, especially when they put in the work the WB releasing his players fairly. Yeah. And we should mention that that story was broken by Howard McDonnell for the New York Times, nor what do you think? I just think it's ridiculous. Yeah. I I know it goes back to the VA. But I think if we look bigger picture we see all these things in sports where commissioners and the people who run these leagues can find ways to make exceptions for when they want to. And the fact that Christie tall firs earning. Ten thousand dollars as an NBA system. Coach that should be an embarrassment that should be something that they find a way to fix because. It's just absurd. Yeah. I really wonder what the WNBA as long game is here. I mean, they are actually about to enter into these negotiations. And this was their chance to show that they are reasonable partners in all of this. And instead they come out looking like they're standing in the way of equality for women, which is not a good look. But it's especially not a good look for a women's sports league. I mean, this is somewhat ridiculous, you know, in every CBA negotiation the players claim that they're not paid enough. And the Lee claims that teams are losing money. That's the script. And I'm really worried about that script playing out in this case because it's going to make the WNBA look bad as a product and the WNBA is not a bad product. It's a product, right? And they were. Just starting to show people. We are putting on a good show. Our fans love us. We are growing and thriving. Former WNBA president Lisa borders said regular season viewership increased thirty one percent in two thousand eighteen. So I don't know what the long game is here. Michael, do you have any idea? Well, I just feel like some rules. You don't have to just stick to and in a situation if the team NBA team wants to hire her as an assistant, then you should take a step back and say, okay. Well, she's being viewed as an NBA assistant, not as a WNBA player having the opportunity for women to become assistance in NBA, a thing that something should be admired and should be encouraged. And this was opportunity to do that without holding onto some stupid. CBA rule, nor are your turn. We're gonna go to Pittsburgh. And I want us to just kinda meditate on what to me is one of the strangest sports news cycles in recent memory. It has to do with Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown who ski. Skipped town before the team's last game of the season. He didn't show up for a walk through the Saturday before the game. Then had his agent call his coach Mike Tomlin to say that he was going to play an able to play Tomlin said, no dice. He shows up for the game. But then leaves severs contact again on Wednesday AB shows up an Instagram video with former Steelers teammate, James Harrison, and they're talking about how they're gonna do this big exclusive interview about what happened. Got it. I run here that at least as of now has not happened. Then Wednesday evening round shows up on a FOX reality show called the masked singer. Now, this was taped in June. But it happens the exact same day that all of this is going down. The mast singer is this incredibly bizarre conceptual singing competition show where celebrities disguise themselves and saying for a panel that includes like one of the guys from the Hague overs in it. It's weird Antonio Brown's disguised as a hippo. Pretty good. He's portable. No, I just my Bobby ran which a little bit of an. So all of a sudden everyone's going, holy smokes. Tonio Brown who is in the middle of this weird drama with this dealers. So where this leaves us is that this dealers they have to figure out what to do it would be incredibly expensive and difficult to move on from Brown. And I'm curious to to hear what you guys think in terms of how it will play out. But I really also just want us to appreciate how insane this all was so care. I'll go to you first. But like process. Oh, wow. Wow. You know, I go both ways on this like on the one hand I laugh at some of the ridiculousness that's gone down. Right. And on the other hand all of it kind of makes me a bit uncomfortable. There's just something about the way that punishment is handed out in sports that feels like putting a toddler into time out and in youth spoke. That's totally makes sense to me like if a kid is acting out and you sit on the bench, and you say think about what you've done that might work for our five ten fifteen year old, but Antonio Brown is thirty and he's being treated like a child, and he's acting like a child, and I'm not really quite sure it matters, which came first, you know, so I'm left kind of made uncomfortable every time this comes up, and then it doesn't help that it generally comes up in story lines that have black men at the center of them. And then it's playing into all sorts of other stereotypes, am I reading too much into this Michael knol? There are a lot of looses. I think that the silliness is captured in hippo think this is. But also one of the things that I think is shows a lot of the issues that are going on in Pittsburgh right now because they played an entire season without their top running back. You know, living on Bill set out the entire year in a whole del contract dispute. And you gotta wonder just in terms of leadership how they can rain things back in. And I think one of the first move. They may have to do is to part ways at Tonio Brown. I think you're right. Karen, saying that it doesn't always matter kinda who starts it. Because when the culture has this weird relationship with punishment in with what's accepted, and what isn't it always comes to a head of actually so not to be a Downer. But I just don't see how this works out in in a positive way for anyone. But I hope there's more reality singing competitions involved. Man. You can't lose that. You really can't. I mean, the thing is Antonio Brown is an incredible dancer in. You know, he proved it with his endzone celebrating. Natural former I just I wish he knew the lyrics perogatives could elect performs a little bitter. He's no match for the peacock who was his competition. Smart money says that's Donny Osmond. So you know, who can compete with that. Because of this show on the radio is one of the most difficult things I've ever attempted to do my guess for this week's edition of three stories. You should know have been the athletes, Michael Lee. Thank you, Michael. Thank you for him. Appreciate happy new year. Happy new year and the Boston gloves. Nora prince Yati. Thank you, north absolately. Since a certain public radio host retired. You may feel like there's been a dearth of soccer content on your radio. Well with our last two stories this week. We're going to try to fix that. Both stories are set in England not in the Premier League. But in one of the country's lower tiers the English Football League to up first years only games Martin Kessler. All right. I'm in the studio. Kevin. Can you hear me? Yes. That's Kevin Ellison. A thirty nine year old midfielder on fourth tier soccer club in England called Morecombe FC, and you guys are known as the shrimps the shouldn't those get in. Why is that? I think it's because it's on the it's a seaside resort Oviously way the football clubs base a stone. Throw from the football, the don's use it say a stone phone from the beach at thirty nine Kevin Ellison's a little old for pro athlete, but he says he still feels fit. He still loves the sport. Life is pretty good. At least it was until Kevin's thirteen year old son recently, brought some unfortunate news to his attention. First thing you need to know about Kevin son. He like millions of others around. The world is obsessed with the soccer video game fica interest fail to this attack. It's looking good from that. He doesn't wanna go out the ins fief to uncomfortable. Nelken a play and you go into bad now known playing fee for one last game for the misfortunate few who have never experienced fica a quick primer in the game you play as real professional teams and players controlling their dribbling passing and shooting on the screen. Most people choose to play with the top clubs in the world like Barcelona and Real Madrid. But the game also includes lower tier teams like Kevin Ellison's Morecombe FC in September on the day. The latest edition of the game nineteen came out. Kevin son. Got a copy went on his straight away and says go into the message the vinyl does the whale these to Kevin Allison there's thoughts on check my game cod. The gamer card lists a player stats in the game. How highly the game designers rate them in things like shooting defending passing in most significantly for this story pace. It's does of these Shapiro paces goes life whilst that. Kevin had been given the pace rating of thirty five. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think it's out of ninety nine yet. I think it's once a ninety nine ninety nine being the quickest than one being the slowest there's me and the give me facie five now. Kevin isn't the very lowest rated player in the game. That honor goes to Aaron Hughes from heart of Midlothian in the Scottish premiership. He's got a twenty four but thirty five rating is definitely horrible. Kevin son puts it this way. He says it will be me paces to scotch. More comes next less. Midfielder was rated twenty six points higher figures. I think there's a bit of ageism they have gone against me 'cause daily folded now there is a history of professional athletes grumbling about their video game ratings some fire off disappointed tweets or like Liverpool's Daniel Sturridge jokingly complained disrespect to my to my credibility vicious bent combined. Technically. My main. But Kevin Allison in Morecombe, FC, social media guy. Matt Rushton decided to take it a step further. We GPS monitors everyday insane. Tell us how fostered woman the coverage. Columbus was we'd one we got the scores put up daily. So we told that being sent to get the data on show few people on social media dot tasty five paces and for real Kevin wanted to show how he really stacked up against his younger. Teammates who have never exactly been supportive the coma. Dinosaurs on mino- Monash, you'll be finished. She'll be in a national home rest in open. But the GPS monitors showed that Kevin's top speed. At least on one particular day was higher than most of his teammates. The data doesn't lie. I'm crooked on them. Oversee me legs gone yet. Kevin Ellison went public, GPS sweets. We having Saint session, and that made a video for some reason it opens with Kevin in a bubble bath. He just told it Buffoni like him an old Amman in the boss, just Chilin. But then it shows Kevin pointing out the results from the GPS mongers to his allegedly faster. Teammates. Novel the month and a half the video has been online. It's been viewed nearly one point five million times. Kevin says people have even sent him videos of themselves using his character in the game videos, but may still scored on against the legs of the Real Madrid's the Monday nights of the world and to Basel Ona's, and there's me with eighty five patient imposs- messy implement into tough going to acquire fines. Amusing the have you heard from anyone at Yay sports? No. It's funny. You say that goes boy come home from school yesterday on these gave me a number. He say he's asking me to ring a sports fief announcer. Cheinal might pace because he's not paying. He's being getting the which is abundant a bit of name coal in school. Because it's it's only five pace book, nausea, say I've not aids off the don't expect to it only seems right though that you've gone through all this trouble. Then you proved with the data that you deserve a higher speed. I feel like I should. You know, sported Cianci Fennell me and not them. I'll do I'll see what I could do. Alas? I haven't yet been able to speak with the good people at Yay sports about whether there's any hope for Kevin's pace rating. Needless to say, we'll keep you updated in the coming weeks. But at the very least Kevin Allison who turns forty in February wants to be back on the pitch next season. So when it comes time for Kevin son to pick up a copy of twenty maybe EA sports can do right by the shrimps midfielder from Markelle messy. That's only games Martin Kessler. We'll have a link to Kevin Ellison's video at only a game dot org. Forest. Green Rovers are the first vegan sports team in the world. Sometimes their fans get ribbed by supporters of other teams if you had some Moulmein pies any might win Mulgan's soda. That's just ahead on only game.

I'm Karen given coming up next week on only a game NFL hall of Famer John Riggins and his wife on their fight for pension parody for pre nineteen Ninety-three NFL retirees. But now, I'm joined by Charlie Pierce for the week's news. Hi, charlie. Hi, karen. Are you ready for Alabama? Clemson in the national championship game on Monday. I mean to powerhouse teams that absolutely never meet on the field. No, sir. I not in a national championship. Oh, wait. That's not right, right. I was going to say, I'm ready. I have been the last four times. Hey, did you know, there's nothing you can do these programs that are just better than everybody else right now. Yeah. Well, as you say, Alabama and Clemson have met for the national championship game three out of the last four years. They met in the semis last year and in their history. The two teams have met a total of eighteen times. Alabama has won fourteen of those games. Which means I'm rooting for Clemson. That's well known. I'm glad your team you root for your rooting for the team is going to lose the game. However. All right. Well, there's a rumor going around that if Bama wins DJ Durkan who's been acting as a consultant will be redeemed Durkan as you recall was recently fired from Maryland where he oversaw what I am going to keep calling toxic program resulting in the death of a player. I don't know about you. But I don't think championship equals redemption. No, I don't either. And I think we ought to stop writing these narratives agai died in Maryland. Okay. And he didn't die that long ago. This didn't happen in the nineteen fifties. This is a guy who as you said ran a toxic program at Maryland. I don't care that he's going to be working on the staff of the team to win the national championship. He simply shouldn't be allowed to work with young athletes ever again anymore than Larry Nassar shit. Meanwhile, urban Meyer got the retirement sendoff he wanted when his Ojo state buckeyes beat Washington in the Rose Bowl. But given the fact that Meyer was suspended for the first three games of the season for basically ignoring domestic violence compl-. It's against his assistant coach is this the off he deserves. No. Of course, not and was embarrassing. And I'm not entirely sure that we've seen the last of urban Meyer on the sideline either. I mean, we've been through this fandango with him before he sounds a lot more serious than last time. But I would not make the odds any better than fifty fifty that. We don't see him coaching another program. Well, we do know what his plans are for next year. He'll stay on at Ohio State as an assistant AD, and he'll co teach a class called leadership and character. And I gotta wonder if he's going to use himself as a case study, sometimes America's universities really don't have their I on the ball. When last bowl story, Charlie. Did you see the dust up between the bulldog and beaver the Longhorn? Steer the sugarbowl. Yes. I did. And I think it was pretty funny video and I'm glad nobody got hurt. This is a very large very hostile Amel. And I'm not talking about other people way seventeen hundred pounds. He can do real damage if he wants to somebody fell down on the job of controlling beaver. That's fairly obvious for the second year in a row Washington Capitals star Alex veg Ken was named a captain in the NHL all star game. And for the second time in his career. He skipping it. Good decision. You know, I really love the way. Alex Ovechkin plays hockey more than anybody since Bobby ORR. I enjoy watching him play but show up. Well, Ovechkin will likely be suspended for one game for his decision. He's so he gets a longer vacation. Right. He says he needs to rest in he'll get to rest even longer the same thing happened when he was sat out in. Two thousand sixteen. What does it say to fans when a league has to suspend players for not playing in an all star game, and they sit out anyway, it means maybe you're leak should have and all star game. I mean, the NHL all star game is a strange event. Nobody plays real hockey. I mean, even if even less of the actual sport than the Pro Bowl is I mean, I remember one year Boston Bruins flora -tario Riley played in a game. And he body check and everybody in hockey world was horrified because you don't throw body checks in the game. Charlie Austin, Mason and Bryson Luna are identical triplets who play basketball for Dora high school in Missouri. Austin is apparently not so good at those free throws. But it's recently come to the attention of his opponents that when he's fouled one of his brothers. Sometimes steps up to the wine, isn't this? The kind of thing those numbers on the backs of jerseys are supposed to prevent I think that the referees have to be instructed us to lie. Those numbers there. I have to admit, I know I'm supposed to Tut this. I give the coach door high school. Enormous critic. Well, he's there. He's. Two guys presented with a unique advantage. And he uses it. And finally, Charlie I'd like to return us to the story of Riley Morrison the nine year old who wrote a letter to Steph curry complaining that his sneakers were only available in the boys section. So what did Santa Steph leave for young Riley under the Christmas tree? She got two pairs of the curry six shoes. Steph curry went out of his way to continue to you know, answer Riley's quite logical question. Yeah. Well, the curry six is didn't even come out till this week. So she got them ahead of everyone else, which I'm hoping inspires a whole lot of kids out there to work on their letter writing skills absolutely of Dan writing too because I became hopeless in handwriting years ago. But there's no reason why youngsters shouldn't be able to you can find the sports writing of Charlie peers from time to time at Sports Illustrated, and he joins us each week here only game. Thanks, charlie. Thank you. The menu at sporting events has traditionally been a bit limited and unhealthy, especially at soccer games in England on a much day. You're looking at love sausages, burgers bacon. Some which is quick and easy Freud food. That's remain. Read a striker with forest. Green Rovers his team is broadening its menu with healthier fair. But that's just one part of a much larger mission. Here's only a games. Gary Wallich in twenty ten forest. Green Rovers, then a fifth tier football club and nails worth England was in financial trouble. Dale, Vince who loved the sport as a kid was approached by the team, they said they needed a little bit of help to get through the summer and other to be a nice thing to do because we could so we should but within a couple of months, it was clear that they needed much more than just a little bit of money. And they said to me, you really need to be the chairman, and I said, I really done so much else to do. But then face. The choice if it will to they would fold. It was heady stuff for a guy who two decades before was living are hermit's life on a hill in England's bucolic cuts. Walled region? I had an old USF radar trailer that rescued from scrap yard and convert into a home in nineteen ninety one. He was travelling in Cornwall and something caught his eye. It was England's first modern proper win foam was super impressed by these big machines because I was using little windmills to Powell trailer and batteries from scrap yard and stuff in my kind of great life. And I was very impressed that inspired him to build his own windmill farm beginning in nineteen ninety six he called his new company eco trinity. It was a big risk when I go don't renewable energy pout about two percent to Britain lost year is that he percent, and we've grown to be a company of about seven hundred people supplying about two hundred thousand customers Vince also created. Electric car charging network and other green energy initiatives. His current net worth is estimated at over one hundred million pounds. He used some of that too by forest. Green Rovers in twenty ten will be open -tunities to use football as a new channel to speak to a new audience of people about sustainability. Still football club. But something else as well that transformation began when Vince noticed the way forest green Rovers players and fans were eaten conventionally an actually conventionally for football, which is even worse than normal conventional if you know what I mean? Vince was a vegan before he was a businessman when he attended his first forest green Rovers practices team chairman. The chef served be FLA Sonya to the players, and I was shocked actually because it meant suddenly, I was the meat trade. Said to chef can be still that and he said Japs manager. Agreed. We will just write them. And then said, that's it. We read me out of the menu straight away for the play as we did it across the whole ground at the same time stuff and fans and visitors as well. And then we took a series of steps over the next couple of years tools full on veganism the team dropped all meat fish and dairy by twenty fifteen Dale Vince was the chairman of the world's first vegan sports team. There were people at the time that said you've been akilah club. Maybe he's going to eat to you know, this kind of stuff. And what about the players wasn't veganism a tough sell to a bunch of rough tough football blokes. Now, we never had any trouble. The rule is for. We've got several players at the clubs have gone vegan completely the several of taken that home with them, and they'd taken themselves in the families vegan one of the most enthusiastic was striker Reuben Reid who joined the team about a year ago. Australian really struggling ready bought mood swings loss of energy rapid weight loss would train hall to play a game unin wake up next day. And I wouldn't be able to sort of run the thirty year old read took to veganism almost immediately. I can train a compelling the week and on Monday morning a train again. I just carry on trade in and train without feeling any eight so pens fight it tools. Call him lips. Ruben reads. Pointed so nestled in the back of the banks so most I'm recovery time as improved times five read is fully vegan now and his boss is pleased. Are you aware of what your players are eating when their own time? And do you care? I don't care. This is always a question that comes up is it in their contracts to they have to be vegan. The answer's no. But if they do choose veganism read says they have lots of options, you can still up Curry's, but they'll be like being based chick pea based and just general greens in veterinary. You know, sometimes you get meat substitutes. The list is endless one of those meat substitutes. A product called Quan is the main ingredient of forest green Rovers signature dish at home games. The coupon is very tasty. If you with your show, you wouldn't believe me, this seems so improbable I think most people that are football club. Could either be vegan annual be putting on great food solids pizza loss of Curry's us, very popular thing with the food. That's Barnaby beer. He's been a forest green Rovers fan for about five years. He's among the growing ranks of match goers suspicious about what's in the meat pies. At other venues. Legiti steak you're like beefsteak at first beer was happy to occasionally sample, the vegan fare at FDR home games. Then he learned that former forest green player Dale Bennett had gone one hundred percent vegan and otherwise at modern as a player. He was very very powerful on the pitch. Great sprint performance, very strong on the bowl. So if he can go vegan a not jeopardize how he makes his living playing football. Then it's an okay thing to do and all should be. Okay. Doing it. Just as average going Bulent fully vegan about a year ago. He says he's about thirty pounds lighter now, and that he has more energy and doesn't get sick. As often his sons dabble in veganism deaf GR home games that do know gets. They look kind of chicken nuggets, you get at McDonald's, but made a cool and the kids love them my boys, especially the young one genuine. He thought he was eating chicken nuggets for a whole season. And he couldn't understand why it was v. Egan club. And he could still buy chicken nuggets. I would say food sales probably increased full fold since we began the team. Also collects rainwater for use around stadium. Fittingly called new lawn. Fittingly located on another way stadium kitchens recycled cooking oil into biofuel. The soccer pitch is mode by a solar power GPS guided robot in July of twenty eighteen the United Nations recognised these efforts by certifying forest green Rovers as the first carbon neutral football club. But Dale Vince wants to take things even further plans for new ground a new stadium and a chance to really pristine envelope for sustainable development at this new location, so really just gangs taunted still there are some detractors Reuben read. I think we stick Rudy whispers in here because there's a smallish club. And we just making a win the league which wanna do things different. People might be attention seeking full reminded people, really Barnaby beer. Here's from them to do a bit of ribbing from other clubs of things like meat pies. It the games if you had some meat pies any might win Mogens soda thing. But winning hasn't been a problem. Forest. Green Rovers playing for the first time in league two are currently within reach of a playoff berth. And they have a chance to make the leap to the next tier where we'll have a big platform at a big reach working on message forest. Green Rovers success must make tempting for Barnaby beer and fellow fans to return the ribbing right now don't think Fatone Zing, very nice. That story came from only games. Gary wallich. Only a game is produced by Martin Kessler, and Gary wellik with help from Nico Emek and nappy stock. Our technical director is marquees Neil. Our senior producer is me.

Speak For Yourself with Cowherd & Whitlock

NFL, Brian Urlacher, Joe Judge, Cam Newton, Michael Jordan, Adam Gase

"Speak for yourself presented by Hyundai Marcellus Slava here, not film a best on. Matter, the color on you Marcel. Color on golf ball color. MANYATTA into building. Let's start with what's been in motion on weekends or NBA players went on strike and miss today. The Playoff Games which raises the question if something similar could happen in NFL Saquon, Barkley said the thought of sitting out a game. It's quote something that was going to talk about. NFL. Reporter Jim Trotter a friend of a manual actual tweet it today that a few prominent black players are telling him. They want to sit out a game to force change and action. So auto is this the right approach free NFL players like. My Guy It is not. It is not Marcellus but remember what I said yesterday and for those who missed it I said that there's a saying in football if you're all wrong here all yeah. Is this your all on the same page again when I was playing a linebacker position, my defensive coordinator, he would relate a call into me. He would say look even if you make the wrong call, just make sure everybody makes it together in uniformity. You don't want a couple players Marcellus the going rogue so to speak okay don't want a couple of players saying you know what? Let me just make an executive. Decision to go on strike or to boycott whatever you want to say to sit out a game because it won't have the mass impact Marcellus think about this. What is the most famous? So to speak boycott -mongst black people in American history I would say the bus boycott those Montgomery Scott Rosa Parks God's nineteen fifty-five Rosa Parks refuses to give up her seat to a white man. That's December. First, by December fifth, the Montgomery Improvement Association formed it was black people came together and said, you know what? We are not going to ride buses we're going to come together and do that but here's the thing Marcellus. Rosa parks that okay. I'M NOT GONNA ride the bus but I'm okay said. And I still gotta get somewhere I'm have to ride this bus. No, they collectively said we're not going to do this together to the point where where the city it raised the tax, raise the minimum fare on taxis Marcellus so that black people now were forced to ride the buses. You know what they said we are going to have a private taxi system we're going. To have drop off points and pick up points. So we're all going to be in this together well, within a year ream cord ruled that against the Fourteenth Amendment, and now desegregated the bus systems because they were in it together I don't like Marcellus athletes going rogue and saying I'm just GonNa Boycott Myself because what does that accomplish if you don't do it in uniformity? I don't like it for several reasons why and I don't like it because I don't know what the end result is going to be I. Don't know directly what your intent is being real. I think feels like a little contagion that has come from the NBA as spread through other sports leagues, and now it's going to impact the NFL. Look. I think a lot of people out there protesting for just reasons but I've always lived my life to be the reason why you're pro testing. The equality that you're fighting for I'm going to fight in my own life and my own vicinity looking in that mirror for that same equality and what do I mean by that everyone keeps talking about circumstances everyone keeps talking about what's happening in this world and not enough what's happening in their world from their expertise their experience thought it was highly interested in that. Jim Trotter quoted the players that they're tire frustrated and emotional. Here we go. Again, you don't like that Word Marcello that were the most I love that were, but it has his place and you call certain plays when you're emotional and there are other places you better not call when you're emotional because they're not thinking through. So now I look at the NBA and it's so interesting that we saw NBA where ninety nine percent of the NBA players were wearing black lives matters t shirt not all but ninety, nine percent. Ninety percent of the players had messaging on New Jersey's not all an a fewer amount but many. But. Only twenty percent voted only twenty percent of them are registered to vote doctors called him out. Is Amazing that these guys and I'm not calling them fought S-. I'm just saying that there's such an optical game to be one right now we're not being supported by real measures. Good actions. So I'm using MBA for would it did it wanted awareness awareness has not one side it is also what are you doing? Now, they're talking about creating a social justice coalition. But you already had black lives matter on a court, t shirts, May and equality and different messaging approved by the League on your jerseys. miasma is something that I see happening all the time which people just doing it for the Graham just doing it for the show when Doc rivers sat up. Only twenty percent of the registered to vote. But all y'all WANNA sit here and walk out make it make sense. So ACTU- I'm sitting here for anyone who's protesting as going to boycott but in their real private life the. Greatest contribution, we have to this political system to change our reality on a local state national level is that vote Colin Kaepernick, four years ago stood up, took a seat and new offer. This 'cause he also didn't vote is this amazing to me that sometimes when you look at these guys outside, you say, yes, I will love to support you. But if you were to know them from the inside based on their actions, you don't know what to support. Yeah to your point. I love what you said about your experiences, your expertise that's going to stick with me for a long time I do not. I'm not going to knock a player for their personal convictions. You went home not GonNa knock you for your personal convictions. If you have the conviction Marcellus to sit in or sit out of something based on your personal stance, you do that. Yes. So going to sit here and knock an individual player and say look if you have a strong conviction, this says, I, cannot play this game and I don't want to participate in distracting from what's going on by giving you a game. Okay. Do that just understand that might not be accomplishing the greater good of what you're trying to accomplish but to your point Athletes have to understand if they're going to walk this line if they are going to try to lead the charge Liba change, you have to make sure you cross all your ts and all your is actually as it pertains to the injustices you can't sit here and simply where this is what? I don't want to go there. Yes you do this. Speak for yourself. Really perplexed me frustrated me in irk me over the last two and a half three months. Marcellus talk and so many of the marches and so many rallies us saw so many pictures on Graham people marching in this people Martin and Net. Decorating their signs and I'm like Y'all taken all these pitcher mapping. And why and it's no disrespect because you know went in twenty, twenty, nine, the millennial. You know what they say if you don't have a picture, it didn't happen I get on. But when I'm thinking about the people that so many people if. They want to emulate the as of the world, the Malcolm XS of the world whoever it is that you wanted to emulate I don't know that they were asking for selfish I. Don't know that they were crossing the bridges and the interstate. So you get this candid now. What it was. Now I'm not going to knock it because again we do live in a social media age, but I'm just going to challenge make sure that it's not just talk made sure is not just for show because there is a lot of that right but you said something yesterday you don't do it for for likes and follows you do for love and leaders something about that stuck with me. Now just make sure that we do live in an age where you have to do some stuff for the world to see but make sure that your. Actions in private are also backing up your message in public. Yeah. The social media man a, it creates an opportunity and platform for all and for superstar athletes these professional athletes, it allows their message to go across the world like that and it brings complete awareness. But with that awareness comes the responsibility I'm not mad child here talking. But like I said that migos didn't make the right song is should have been talking like you're walking. Let's bring in Lavar Arrington on this Lavar, was sitting out a game in protest me the right approach for NFL players. Listen I. Do not think it's the right approach and I hate to say it because I understand what it represents and what what these guys are ultimately trying to get across is the frustration and disappointment and The pain and the fear that is surrounding an entire country, not just the community but a country. I tend to echo what your sentiments are in terms of What is the ultimate in? What is the ultimate goal I started thinking about it from the perspective of if you're to be a leader in terms of using your influence and using your your popularity and the platforms that assist you on those things and social media I can understand you doing a campaign where you put the photos up and you put. Videos up actually do understand it because again, if you're trying to mask distribute a message, then you know what? Maybe maybe just maybe social media has become the proper way to try to get that message out to the masses. But then it leads me to the second part of this and you touched on it Marcellus. What is the plan? What what concerned me was? It's like Oh. We're having conversations about which says. To me that you don't have a plan, you guys are basically sitting around in San shoot we play not play. How should we handle it? You know what's the right way so they may not even collectively have the right response to this question and that concerns me why because this is such a big moment. It's such a big topic that to go into it half cocked and half ready to go hand baked. Not. Well thought out. You don't have a plan where you have touch points of methodically moving through what what it is. That's checkmark you know to punchless points are I think it's dangerous and the reason why it's dangerous is because you have people who understand what planning is they understand what the ultimate goal is if for what it's worth, that's why we're sitting in the situation currently that we're in now is because. People came together and said you know what? I'm tired of this king, the crown telling me what to do and I need to figure out how I can live the type of life. I WanNa live you know what? Let's build a boat that's fine to boat. Let's go get on his boat get up Outta here. Let's go found a place where we can exercise what we want to exercise and that's what happened. That's what happened. Know when you when you celebrate. Independence. Day. You're celebrating a British deal like they left Britain like you're you're celebrate your independence from the crowd. We weren't there. I don't know about you ought to Marcellus but we weren't in Britain. So to me when you're thinking about how much has to go into gaining that that equality it's not sitting out a game. It is a total deal get all of. That social media move and get all of the people of America to sit out for weeks not just the athletes and influencers famous people how about everybody people to sit there and finger point and thump at you and say, you're not black enough where you're not real enough. You Ain't about the 'cause you sell out you sitting on the porch you're inside the house how `bout every last one put it on the. Line and let's all sit out an entire week. Not just a gang. Let's all sit out an entire month not just not just a moment right but everybody is okay when it's convenient to be able to look at somebody else and say, Oh, they're famous it won't hurt them as much. You need to do for us what we can't do for ourselves which in some cases make sense and this one I don't buy. Man. Let me personalizes store because what did they say you can impress people with your accolades, but you can impact in which scars. So I'll tell you about some of my scars because I am the son of a mother who worried a lot. And a dad who trip it all. and. A grandmother who prayed all the time. And I still had to deal with reality and Y'all know my story. I think enough beyond Wikipedia I'm from Compton South. Central, Inner City Los. Angeles and I'm here now. It's interesting when I talk about my road, how I was able to navigate by the help of others some some of them helping me with direct communication that was actually positive influence and some of them because of my direct communication and proximity to them, and then doing bad things I learned to define myself by them of what I didn't want to be and what to become growing up. So dudas navigation I was called a lot of names. I. Still Hear a lot of those names. I'm a sellout McCone. I'm a sucker. Is On. Why you an academic decathlon team Oh why? Why are you always? Did you smarty are why your book bag so fool and look I am not blaming them for not thinking the same way I did but I kept Omar. Road. And I knew I had end goal in game in sight even as a youngster my first experience with violence because this is an awareness issue, everyone keeps talking about systemic issues and racial injustice. Let me tell you about some systemic issues in my neighborhood and give you full awareness. I was concussed before I even play football seven years old on a swing some blood walked up and they wanna see me and five seconds later my grandmother's house would a huge hole in my head Christoph to swing landed on a boater nine stitches later I, moved forward. Was that what I stress post traumatic stress I didn't even know what that meant. We fast forward at least six different occasions in my life growing up I had to run for my life because bullets were spraying all around the including one incident when I was on a high school football field warming up doing jumping jacks eighty ninety strong our team. The whole entire field is littered with bullets. Police come police handled that situation? Do you know we continue to play that game? My Post traumatic stress I think. So I, look back in all these incidents and have more but I'm not gonNA keep you guys bogged down with just my details but I look back at the data. And data tells me in my high school years. I always called him in wwl years because when they came out, I was in high school and life changed around my neighborhood. Let me just tell you and I think the entire country there were six thousand, four, hundred, seventeen homicides committed against people of Color. I had to navigate I had to be blessed grace and mercy, but also had endgame insight that made my choices have to line up to what my goals were and yeah, it's not going to be a perfect experience. No matter how much you worry how much you don't care about it and how much you pray about it. You still gotta deal with it. I just want everyone to know right now if you have something that is weighing heavy on your heart, make sure before you start the movement towards that goal that you even know what their goal is and have it in sight. Coming up at the top of the hour NBA, players have found an unlikely ally on social justice issues and Michael Jordan. We'll tell you if he's the right guy for the job but I Brian Urlacher said social media own fire by calling out. NBA Player for protesting. We'll tell you what we think next speak for yourself is presented by Hyundai. Back to speak for yourself presented by Hyundai as usual social media has been riddled with good bad of course ugly. The NBA protests that took place as we bears hall of fame. LINEBACKER. Bryan. Into the discussion with a post of his own got sit well with many comes directly from his instagram account. Brett Farr played the Monday night football, Game Day his dad died two for four touchdowns in the first half and with a legend for playing in the face of adversity NBA players boycott the play offs because I do reaching for a knife wanted on felony sexual assault warrant shot by police. Oh. Joined by Lavar Arrington, you're going to start with you reaction to earn lacquers pose my friend man this thing right here. This one was perplexing to me because if you see how this all is layered is interesting one. One you suggested a terrible opinion. And set it at the worst moment. Even, though everything he said. was actually factually correct which is makes you say, Whoa, what is this? What kind of STU is he right now bruin up because he went and I've seen this before working in media working with individuals that they stand on proper grounds to suggest something that is really a thumb in the eye and then they throw the rocks, hide their hands because this is not even his original post. This is like re tweets and reposted. And then sit there and say y'all do with the agitation. This is an amazing thing because. Our lack has to notice he's media savvy enough on no Brian a little bit. We certainly played against each other and talk to many times. You GotTa know that in this world we talk about the act not the actor. So if you talk about Brett Farve, you're talking about the act of the bravery courage him to respond in a moment but when you're talking about take talk about the actor and you start to undress him and his issues in indiscretion. So that's why didn't sit well with me and I'm sure many many others out there. You know what I found to be interesting. The first thing I thought was seventeen year old kid that is allowed to just walk away with his. Rifle in his arm, and after the fact is then apprehended and incarcerated. Where was the tweet Brian? Where was the? Where was the I G Post Brian what? What is your? What is your idea? What is your thought process on what his actions worth? And if that was justifiable in any way shape or form. So I just kind of came to the conclusion that I'm not going to be out here defended news this lockers draft class I, know Urlacher I don't know him super well, but we came up together and I just came to the conclusion like I'm not I'm not going to go on national television trying to defend his do that was the first conclusion that with my first reaction when I saw that you know what happened Then I gave you my my second reaction on well, if you can justify shooting a man and his back, which how many cops were there how many police officers were present like four at least I think we're there and some had they had their guns draw. If you're sitting there and you really want to put out there the information of saying that this. Person was going for a nice in a gunfight would his b-actor? I just think it comes across as a very disingenuous way to try to make a point but understanding. This, and this is a very critical thing to piece of information to understand. That's his truth that is his perspective and he put it out there. So my dad always told me when somebody tells you and shows you who they are believing believable believe who they are and move from there. So I don't ever want to be in no situation God forbid, if I find myself out an event for the NFL is up. There, I don't. Want to be as cool. We don't we're out but for Dan shoring trying to take uber which you or or radical. I'm not which you because now it's fouled away that. So for autumn years, you were the captain you were be lack. You're the middle linebacker. Do Monsters are the mid way and you're supporting cast pretty much was all the dude turns his back around and was going for a knife and got shot in the back seven times. They're the reason why you're in the National Football Hall of fame yet you feel this way on the inside. I'm cool on you. We got your lap and feel what you WANNA. Feel. But that's now filed away a my mental rolodex. We all know hug up dapper type of type situation at this point. Yeah. My first thoughts on my first lapper this see this is actually why I appreciate awareness of social injustice. Why appreciate protests? I know Marcellus you said something response to Bruce Arians yesterday be was saying he doesn't necessarily think protest accomplish much actively they may not. But passively they actually do a lot. You know when you live in an area that may not be. Regardless of where you live, if it's nighttime, you turn on a light is going to expose some roaches. See all of a sudden u-turn on them license roaches, GonNa Start scrambling around why? Because when it was dark, you couldn't see 'cause they weren't exposed but under the light, some things got expose. What am I saying? What I'm saying is when, when, when, when issues, like this, when injustice is brought to the forefront and people have to express the real opinions, it exposes things and I'm. Not. Here to cancel that's not what I believe in, but you can't fix a problem that you know exist. So till lavar point if Brian Lacquer genuinely feels like this, he doesn't get understand the true nature of what's going on this has nothing to do with Brett farve playing a game after his father died versus whatever lacquers talking about what I've realized is people still need to be exposed to the real issues so that now the understand the real issues you can fix it so. If protests taking a knee if wearing black lives matter shirts does nothing else Marcellus it gets people talking, and now that people are talking, we get to hear people's opinions and like Lavar said, we can either help educate them based on what might be an ignorant opinion or we can file them away in the cabinet. We need to file them away in and proceed with our lives. Interesting Let's go biblical sunny son is up here my man I know right here and to your point roaches in the daylight. Breakfast. One ran across like y'all not in the daytime. Oh man in a morning y'all violating. Okay. Here's the thing. As you are bishops son You understand Ye judge ye shall be judged. Lacquer gave us this land that now is going to be critical in terms of looking at him to a different exposure. We're GONNA, be lookin' animal little differently because the delancey looked at the situation through and how did he looked at this situation? Let's break it down simply. because. This is not a Gotcha moment like, oh, we got to lacquer lights on you as much because loughrey tripping lacquer revealed we was and he did it comfortably did it on his instagram did it come? He has followers so your ran and kick down the door found out early in their early. Here what's up WHO's out there? There's a false equivalency that he tried to draw and I caught it. When he's taught about Brett Farve, he basically sums it up by making us have the impression of Strip. Strip curry's. Like Oh, that's a strong man right there. But then when he goes to the second tweet talking about Jacob Blake, he's basically telling you I'll players show week because y'all going out there and boycotting in hurt by criminal. And if you notice that difference that's the exposure to the Lens, which now once you cast that he deviated from his initial point or at least in his post that now he judge shall be judged. So now you go and go look at Berkeley early going forward lasts the Var. Set and a more critical I me personally I phased by what he posted because I know who I am and now thankfully I know Career. I got debt for you. I don't live in this world as binary and wants to do that you off because that's cancel culture in your own world. So have culture for this dude I just Erlach going go to certain Lips F. certain directions there may be more cells while he won't go UH said on his show yesterday. If the blade cools off, all you can do is try to continue to sharpen it. That is the only thing that you can do to steal once it once it cools down from being bolted from that he. This is a simple situation where he's a blade, he's not being he's not being wielded right now he is a finished product blades. So for me the most disturbing part of this, the reason why I I don't look at it as canceled culture how I feel about it. What I look at is a bother me because. I believe he's a husband and father I do about memory serves me. Well May-. Hey looking me. Here. But what bothers me is that man whether a criminal you funding marcel is bad weather a criminal or not in that moment was in the presence of babies of young people and mother, and for you to have no type of awareness of what maybe you have a point about Blake himself. But do you think that it is okay to actually re toe something that would suggest that because this man has a charge which hasn't been convicted of if that's the case is conflicting reports on if it's true or not. If there was a knife in the car and that was confirmed that it is still okay for you to handle a situation in such a way where you talked about post traumatic syndrome. Babies are thinking right now to day. Brian. What do you think that mom is thinking day Brian How do you feel about those babies who are totally innocent and essential wasted Brian as to what they're going through based off of your logic of what it is that you re posted and said, Hey NBA guys Brett farve threw four touchdown passes when his dad died. So what would you guys? I think is disconnected. What bothers me is these babies are involved in this, and this continues to perpetuate itself and repeat itself because we're paying attention to the guy we're not even paying attention to who it really truly impacts the most, which is these babies that are trying to figure out how do I fit in this society? How am I supposed to internalize this when I should be playing in a sandbox would toys and you're sitting here and I gotTa Watch my father and his back by somebody that I'm being trained should be taking care of me while. He's taking trying to take the life of my dad like come on or lacquer be better than that. Be who you are. I have no problem with be who you are but be better than that. Because of that was you, you would not want your child to see something like that and please don't give me well, it wouldn't be me in that situation. Okay I. Get that there have been enough Anisa. People that have been shot in their backs as well where you can't qualify that as a reason say that it wouldn't be you. Wow. That's some heat. Well, it's clear that Brian Urlacher is uneducated as to why exactly these NBA players are protesting and what is going on. So allow me to further educate Brian Urlacher in anyone else who still unaware it's not just about Jacob Blake who was shot it's not about George Floyd, or beyond a Taylor, it's not just about Ahmad arbitrary. You see black people are still crying tears over. Emmett. Till Sixty five years ago today August Twenty Eighth Nineteen, fifty, five, it till was a fourteen year old boy who ventured from Chicago. The same Chicago where you bryner lacquer became a hall of Famer to Mississippi to visit some relatives a white woman Carolyn Bryant, accused Emmett till. The flirting with her well he was murdered mutilated and murdered in one, thousand, nine, fifty, five, the two men who murdered him were acquitted in Nineteen fifty-six they admitted that they did it Carolyn Bryant the woman who accused Emmett till of flirting with her in two thousand seventeen, she recanted story Emma to he would be seventy nine years old today. So Brian Urlacher, Understan-, the tears, the pain, the frustration of black people it's not just about seven shots. It's about a long long history coming up then they'll Jones has a huge sophomore season in front of him and as new coaches finding creative ways to up at him up we'll tell you if this is a good idea. For yourself by Welcome back to see for yourself presented by day with things are getting weirder about a day giants camp. Coast Joe Judge already made headlines by making players in the system coaches left mistakes take a lap Vinnie main has turn. When he said he was considering taking the Red non-contact Jersey off Daniel. Jones. Well, judge reacting to all this criticism with them numerous take a listen. I got the strength staff downstairs when up in Boston soap and socks, and we're just GONNA take back into well On for a while. Now You know look it's it's responsible every player ready to play and know with a quarterback you've got to be smart the contact. Lavar still with us but I tell. You like how your boy Joe dillas responded to criticism. I hate that I hate this what do I mean? What Barcellos? Don't judge is now making me Anti New York giants like I have no beef with the giants. As of last year I liked the giants like Saquon, Daniel, Jones, nobody believed in him and he bought a little bit early on last year. But now joe judge you coming in here with this Ignatz and I gotta call it out giants Fans I've upped your win total yesterday from to win to five wins Darla mad at me but Marcellus again, the full screen prints got a fool juggling. All Fun and Games till you're on start losing games I started going win five games. I look at first week I'll going to lose second week to the bears. You'RE GONNA WIN YOU'RE GONNA lose to the niners lose to the rams lose cowboys by then Joe Judge going to be done with the folks. On. The Eagles lose to the bucks beat the ranch skins again, lose to the Eagles beat the bengals luther. seahawks beat the cardinals and that's going to be your last win and Joe Judge. He's not gonna be smiling then Marcellus so I've got a problem with Joe Judge because these giants fans they deserve more than a head coach going to come in here they tried to cover up his ignorance with some jokes this not even funny. So judge thank patriots no more. You can't just call off wedge. You can't run you. Sit here and run your your return and punt whole duct teams out there. That's not what this is. You have to orchestrate an entire organization, and again, we don't see if you laugh income week seven when you're about to five. Wow. It was a joke laugh either laugh or walk out the Comedy Club don't stand up protest how dare you judge making this unlikable this whole genre comedy show you as a coach I like this one I was off Joe Judge a little bit. Back Out Joe. Joe Doesn't tell you what before this moment before he show levity before he can make something lighthearted and be self aware enough to know the criticism about him and to make a joke about it I thought he was a dictator but now realize just a disciplinarian you actually got scowl and that ugly face her and he really smelled and on the inside not give you an example I play for a coach like just Joe Judge, a tremendous coach hall of fame coach. Bill parcells, and this is part Zillion to me right now. Big Total was his nickname, his persona. He will let them lead the charge lead how he led the team at times but every now and then you get a glimpse of the man with the big heart the smile bill parcells I remember this one incident. I had a perfect spot in the locker room because I still was big dog even was coming down the hill and that was right there. To Edge, Bill PARCELLS THE WAY The Dallas cowboys locker room was he came in exactly in front of me on the exact opposite side of the room he walks in it's thirty forty chilling. We were talking joking everything he walks in first step crickets and he walked slowly didn't say a word just walked in that locker room crickets walked out that locker room took a right turn but boy Leo Carson. Him. And that was his board and then I picked because I had the perfect locker room spa and I saw bill parcells start laughing. I love when I could do that to them. That's the point. This out there saying look I'm a lead I'm GonNa Change Culture I'm going to be a disciplinarian but show no I am not a robot so for those critics out there naysayers not Relaxed until we see this team go out there and play because there's new culture may actually produce results. You know when I was in high school. I would do interviews because I was not used to doing. said, and you know quite a bit you still do their. Mother No. I. Don't mother used to put me in the mirror in her in her masturbate or excuse me her main bid room. Okay and sit on the commode see and make me do answer the questions and the mirror. If I answered it correctly, she would tell me that is great. That's all and so for ended up becoming pretty good at at dawn interview. Sorry. What thing that my mother told me and it always stuck with me and it was very wise. It didn't really resonate. But now today it kind of makes a whole lot more sense. Jokes aren't jokes unless you have credibility to go along with them. Oh, I. started thinking to myself. I don't WanNa look like a gesture or cloud when I'm joking because nobody knows what my capabilities are. If I have won a super bowl and I said something like this, I know the reference, my father was in the military a wounded warrior. So I know the Gomer Powell getting his his tail kick in the barracks. In full metal jacket I know the reference that he made. So a lot of people it might even went over their head you know putting a soap and socks and beaten him up while he's in the bid because they were making a tough soldier. Well, I'll say this to Otto's point it didn't end well for Gomer POW. Well. For the the drill sergeant that took him through basic training. Become a great soldier. But he was too great and he lost his mind and a Mr becoming that I think right now looking at Gioja he really believes he's doing the right things but he has to be careful I don't know what the relationship is behind closed doors I can hear the sound bites react from that but if he isn't making sure that he has a good. Strong healthy relationship with his team to be able to things in jokingly manners do the things that he's doing making them run laps or you know hitting the quarterback if he's not on the same page as these guys can go back really quickly and not the pro level that is deaf to coach his career as the head guy. So he's got to be very. Cognizant of the fact that joking around without having any type of credibility to you your players might end up laughing at you lose and respect for you and not WanNa follow you to where it is that you ultimately are trying to get them to let me let me tell the story myself and then let me leave a parting message. If I may Mrs Joe, Jr everybody his those who leaving him believing him because of the way that John Harbaugh current head coach for the Baltimore Ravens Page John. Harbaugh. Remember former special teams coach for ten years. Philadelphia Eagles before becoming a phenomenal head coach Joe Judge Special Teams Coach for ten years before getting a head coaching position well. John Harbaugh. was under the tutelage of Andy Reid head coach for the chiefs John Harwood. Consistently walk into Andy Reed's office back when they were both on the Philadelphia Eagles Staff and gentlemen he would walk into Andy Reed's office, and he would see if three by five note cards sitting on Andy Reed's desk behind Andy Reid each and every day, and he'd walk into his office and he'd see them note card and see the note card and he'd see the note chord you WanNa know what the note. Cards said gentlemen would assume said don't judge and that's all I. can say giants do not judge Joe Judge don't know kind of participation in this nonsense of Joe Judge this name. We're your man. Josiah's came in and all the stories were dark dark dark. Finally, he is a little light. Now, we're going to attack. On y'all lar- I'm not I. IT makes him more likeable to me and let me just clean up Lavar was saying because it's interesting. He was talking about you gotTa have credibility to be funny to have a job right I. Disagree with that be very careful when these situations because I've been the best player before and I've also been a bum on the same damn team and let me tell you what happens. When laughing day laughing at a joke when you demand they laugh because you said that joke because I've been the same God that was even funnier when I was sorry on the team Sunday nobody laughing at my book. So personality, it doesn't make plays I had the nicest coach ever probably ever walked this planet Mike Riley anybody ever met Mike Riley no, he's the. Nicest guy ever we were sorry it doesn't matter. You could be mean you could be sorry you can be happy to be great. I'm just saying let's map everything onto right now his personality in terms of what the production's going to look like going forward coming up speaking of Personality Cam, Newton. Embracing, Bill Belichick, and starting to sound like Tom Brady will explain nuts yourself. By. Yourself time. Now, for one performance sponsored by capital one, what's in your wallet? Cam Newton has been rewarding the patriot. For the new attitude of can't. Even praised as new quarterbacks work at the personality, but he still has named the starter. Cam is taking the most reps the practice, but he does it see himself qb one. Let's take a list. Every day is a workday from me and I'm the that that label is not important to me right now because I know I have so much to that I need to get better so much need to learn so much that need to be comfortable with. And throughout this process, that's the last thing that I'm pretty much worried about. Lavar have you back with this Marcellus I'm going with you I might can't attitude and his. Attitude toward me and I love his attitude I love that had even more with the hell's that. Friend. Tom Sawyer huckleberry. Finn. swags. How you about the hat. The hat I can't pull it off. So one I'm amazed at that too. If you ever seen Cam Newton in person than he had he go ahead add on top of to ooh boy killing the game but let me get back on topic right now. I love camp because he just showed me, his finesse game is strong stronger than mine. I'm actually jealous of him because I'm the type of guy that just rush situation and just show you how thirsty I am for that opportunity whereas Cam is like, oh I'm sorry Julie men and your Batman Superman pose I'm sorry immediate at is now seeing that I'm taking a majority of the reps that I look like the starter until Belichick says, I'm the starter I'm not even thinking about it I'm not even Thurston for that. So no cart before the horse would cam have after respect that because can has been. We just talked about it last block the highest highs and be a real the lowest lows, and why were they low because cam new his body filled them. He walks into training rooms where he's not the priority anymore and cow Allen is ball. Into a point at a time where Cam Newton became you know after dark can you believe that? So Cam Newton knows how the business of the NFL works way to show firmness and to show fashion as well. Cam Cam I love your fashion that don't like you mindset look Marcellus Lavar I need my quarterbacks to beat a cockiest person on. I, need them to beat the most confident person on the field. Remember what Sea Hawks playing a packers Matt hasselback takes a field in overtime. They win the coin toss we want the ball and we're going to score quite get it through a Pixie. At least he thought he was going to. Need Marcellus. Can to at least think he's going to be starter. So he can continue to prepare and play like here. My Marcellus, your thing I'm a psychology dude you noticed. Yeah. By the time can't take. One gentleman he wouldn't have won a game in twenty two. Cam got a little self doubt. I. Don't need those words to emphasize that self-doubt two years since you WANNA game as long time. So I like the style Cam, but I need that mindset to be every man stop hit a Lavar I'm giving you translate I'm sorry. Marcellus. Translation here and I can translate it because I'd experienced. Let me start by saying this my freshman year of college I went to school there. They've promised me that I have an opportunity to start and I committed early to go there I get there and they had a color jersey color coordinated deal and orange was. Scrubbed you practice squad you aren't you didn't have a chance to start but blue dark blue was a starter white was a starter for off. It's one day I go to my locker mccovey has a Blue Jersey. Go out to practice and all the seniors and upperclassmen are looking at me like like look at this do like what what did they give him a Blue Jersey. So I do a post post practice interview and I, say you know what the starting job that title really doesn't mean much to me. I'm just trying to contribute and be the best football player that I can possibly be beds teammate that I can be sounded much like what cam? Newton said the translation here is I know that I have a chance to start but I don't think I'm the starter. I'M NOT GONNA jump out there and say I'm a starter when I'm not cleared. Sure if I'm a starter. So to me I there and said what I felt was the right inappropriate thing to say and I think that's what Cam Newton said here I think his attitude is fine because I think he's still trying to get. Stable ground on if he is the start or not an until he's named, the starter knows he is the starter. He has to walk around the topic of conversation in this manner. So I like the approach, the Y'all know better than I because you were perennial starters all pro's pro bowlers hall of fame is in your head while Y'all was in the NFL I was just to stay on the depth chart. So if your boys in training camp, the only thing I care about is, where do I fall on the depth chart now? He's a different person athletically than I. Ever was Y'all on the same page in that regard. But what I know is this work cam if this is the Way You'll need to do all at Camp 'cause I don't like Cart Cam Newton like super camp, and that's what I'm trying to see. Be. Michael at. Politics. Days, but now's owner is embracing new. We'll tell you if he's right guy but a job that's next be said. Speak for yourself sponsored by KFC's twenty dollars Philip drive-thrus opened or get delivery by. Ourselves while here, Manual Otto's Ta for big storage for let's head Mba for the players have found an ally and Michael Jordan. At the days of tense meetings have ended the season Jordan who is the only black majority owner in the League reached out Chris Paul to offer assistance and spoke Russell Westbrook about social justice issues. Jordan reportedly reportedly then told a group of owners quote right now listening is better than talking. So I took is Michael Jordan right dark for this job he absolutely Marcellin than he is because I'm reminded of a song and Hamilton, phenomenal musical there was great. No usually, they don't live up to the hype. and. The room where it happens right and it's about Alexander. Hamilton. Burr calmest Jefferson Autumn cast was in a room where it happened. What am I saying I'm saying that when decisions are being made, you've got to be in the room where it happens right a lot of these players. They're not entering B.'s rooms where these decisions are being made. Why because? Let's be real some of these owners more wealthier individuals. They don't want respect you because you'll have that level of wealth that mayor that level of respect to end to somebody. And to Y'all are just very, very different Michael Jordan one based on what he accomplished on the court but also more importantly based on what he's accomplished Hunky. Okay. He's earned the respect of the decision makers there needs to be a mediator there needs to be an intermediary. There needs to be someone who can stand in the gap between some of these players twenty, three, twenty, four. Twenty five and and these owners fifty sixty seventy extremely wealthy. There needs to be somebody to bridge that gap who better than one of if not, the most notable sports figure the most notable and equivocally basketball player in Michael. Jordan. So he is the right guy for the job because he can enter into these rooms Marcellus he can infiltrate these spaces that these players just quite literally can. I agree he's the right guy for the job. He's a double owner on top of just being an owner. Now, only owner majority owner of a basketball team but Jordan brand and the two guys he talked to join bland kind. So think about it being a double owner have credibility being a former player just think about all the different inputs and outputs that exist in what Michael Jordan displays. So that's going to obviously give everyone a comfort. More than that I, think that his business attributes. A lot of times get mischaracterized in terms of him not wanting to step in and alienate people when he was a player and polarize others when he was a player, he took a lot of slack for just being focused on basketball and growing his brand, which is to me the greatest personal brand we've ever seen. So when you think about Michael Jordan I, don't think you really have the full picture and turns of his greatness even then off the court think about what that has monetize materialize to. He's an owner more importantly Michael Jordan had a mindset that he knew what he was good at. He knew what he was great at and he knew he wasn't good at he knew what? He didn't know. So like a Lebron James Right now wanted to criticism Lebron is that he goes into places and spaces at times, and he doesn't have the depth of knowledge in those situations. Jordan, nude when he was walking through the house, even though the door was unlocked, not always open it because he had a singular focus. So it's interesting now that he's evolved and do the evolution, he's made more comfortable for the players to come to him and more importantly for ownership to respect him and bring them into their circle. This bringing right now are Fox NBA analysts bucur welcome to our circles. So slick rick MDA become a go-between for owners and players is the right man for the job. No He's not and when we first when I was first presented with this question, I was right there with guys. I looked at the appearances and said, we'll, of course, former owner. Former player. The only owner who's a former player has the respect of both sides for certain owners that became owners in part because they could. They got the opportunity to hang with Michael. Jordan. His legacy and his legend carry that far. But in this circumstance, first of all the guy that would be the most ideal. Is No longer with us and that's former commissioner David Stern the late David Stern because he has the experience of having brought the league out of deep water and getting the owners and the players to work together in order to make that happen and make no mistake, the NBA may be back implying but right now they are facing issues between the players and the owners that puts them in deep water. All that set. I'll tell you were talking about all of Jordan's financial success which the players look at and they respect. And to a certain degree, the owners do to but. He's not by any stretch the deepest pockets in that room. There are other guys that have been far more successful financially than Michael Jordan. On the other side of the equation, the players. Marcella you mentioned the Jordan brand. If I'm James Harden or I'm Damian Lillard I'm a guy who's not associated with Nike or the Jordan brand I begin to question okay. What are the entanglements he's talking to Russ and CPI three like does he have our best interest in heart and that is ultimately the two elements that are most important for the go between which is the ability to say not only do I understand have your best interests at heart owners and players but that I have the wherewithal to get that done and again that's why I said David Stern because he's demonstrated that he has that ability. I've Michael Jordan based on his history. Yes I. Think it's been overblown his lack of concern when it comes to social issues but nonetheless, he has not been on the front line when it comes to that and that is something that needs to be resolved the players and on the owners side of things. Does he have the records are they going to look at him and say your former owner? You might be going a little too soft with them. It's it's it's walking that line and I'm just not sure that Michael Carey's there's plenty of respect. Does. He have the ability to be that go-between? That is the question see slick I agree with you I disagree with you rather on a few accounts agreed with you all week. So pardon the mystique right there. You you said that there were two necessary elements and the first element you said for someone to be the go between, is that level of understanding when I think about the element that's necessary to me. It's passion. It's fervor a desire real real want to change. Michael Door has been through some things this year remember after Kobe died. He said a piece of me died when Kobe died I, feel like number one that led to change but most importantly remember how Michael Jordan tragically lost his father. By gunshot and remember Jacob Lake seven shots right now, I think that is an internal motivation that is now becoming external for Michael Jordan. When I'm looking for a leader slick I, need someone who is passionate about the cause someone who truly has a vested interest to truly be that go-between. But then you said that Jordan's pockets aren't as deep as the owners you're exactly right but I need a ticket to get into the door and slick. If you buy in a concert ticket buying a ticket, any venue. Sit courtside, you can sit in the nosebleeds but as long as you got a ticket, you can get in. Jordan. At least has enough money to get a ticket to get into the door to converse with these owners. So when I do get a go-between I, see that Michael Jordan is perfect one number one because he has a ticket to get inside he might. Not Be sitting with these owners, but he has a ticket to get inside, but then number two. Jordan has the motivation he understands what's going on and while he may have been detached over the last several years, it appears at Jordan is coming back around at least publicly to say you know what let me do what you players can't do because if I'm being real. Owners will forever at players as players, owners, name or quite literally owners and so Michael Jordan he's not necessarily going to be looked at that. He's not going to be degraded to that. Jordan is also an owner majority owner of the Charlotte team. So therefore I see during being the perfect go-between. Yeah, I got to disagree with you too Slick Rick I. Think he's the Perfect Guy Marcel or through here comes to protest about one thing is you mentioned that he lacks financial capital to be on the same plane same playing field as the other owners, what he lacks in financial. Capital. He lapsed him in human capital in terms of just being in that room the presence the be able to talk to these players on a different channel than the rest of the owners and let's not go outside of those borders because human capital can certainly translate into getting things done especially when you bring up the name Michael Jordan and one thing that I noticed about Michael, Jordan in terms of just all the layers of his success let's not forget that how laser focus he must have been and must be to always just get the job done but come out number one. You're one in a million probably even greater is just to make it to the pros and then you not only are one in a million but soon, become the one and everyone wants to tell you what else you should be focused on and should do and add to your bag but Michael Jordan said, let me just do this first and then he leaves the game of basketball and for most professional athletes even the greats their highlights. Are Behind him not in front of them but hint translates that because of his Nike connection and his brand to Jordan brand, and then he starts to kill it at that while becoming an owner, the only owner desa brother as majority owner of NBA team. So now you're starting to say man, this dude is not only kicking down the door, but he's taken the king's throne every time he does something you look at that situation and imagine. You walk into the room and they're twenty nine majority owners that look everything. But Black, and then there's one in there and there's three is sitting there. You know the president of the MVP as like a steam bomber. Got An issue. Let's talk about this social justice. What are you thinking? What are you project? That's going to happen going forward and Steve. Bomber looks. Three. Yeah Michael what do you think about it and Michael has to answer that question and then they go to GD bus they ain't eighty. What's what are you planning to propose for Social Justice Issues? She's like I wish magic was here. Mike, what are you project? The point of it is Michael. Jordan has brought enough shoulders to take some of the pressure, the guilt, the issues that come from the complexion of all of the rest of that room and to translate that in terms that no one else in that room can. So what I'm disappointed is in with the two of you is that the first thing that should have been asked okay. Slick I'm now using that as well. Slick. So Michael Jordan isn't the right man for the job say he couldn't do the job said, he's not the right man for the. So who slick is the right man slipped he's gone. Recipe the right man for the job is Mark Cuban because if you'll know about what the players have asked for you. while. We have made a big deal about social justice. The gives them the owners have given to this point have the majority of them have had to do with voting. And that to me is the tell that what the players really want is that they want to change in the leadership in this country and they want the help of the owners to make that happen and they want to know that the owners are as committed to making that happen as they are Mark Cuban. There is nobody Michael Jordan included who has crossed. swords. With the current president more than Mark Cuban, he has that cash cachet and he has the receipts to hold that position with the players at the same time the owners all Wanna be. Mark Cuban because he's a Rockstar as an owner they became NBA owners because they were rich as hell but they didn't have a TV show they weren't making appearances on entourage. On billions you think that's by accident. No they all wanna be Mark Cuban and the players know that Mark Cuban has carried the flag for them on at least one issue that is very important to them. So I'm just looking at it and saying, yeah, Michael Jordan. There's a lot of reasons why he could do the job but if you're asking me who the right man for the job is Mark Cuban's credentials outweigh Michael's by just a little bit for me. Yeah Apologize we wanted to last four minutes I take it off the record. Adam Gates and let me I'm bill or playing a game of he said, he said we'll tell you have gazed has already lost the jets locker room next I apologize to use liquid. Back. To speak for yourself let's return to the NFL. The jets have had their fair share drama this off season. First of all Adam got his wish and he was traded. But not before he publicly ripped had coach Adam. Gates now this week day set star running back Leon. Bell was on the sidelines during practice because a hamstring tightness but not according to Levy on he took to twitter push back and said. On wrong with my hamstring, but he wasn't done. We quote it's tough to say. You do a bunch of standing around and I'm used to going Emoji man. Just Emoji just emoji. I had to add my emotional. Lavar is back with us. We'll marcellus funny to know, Bro, his Adam gays lost control of this jets locker room. Don't tell me no. Stop. I'm never gonNA lie and he hasn't lost control of this lock right now. Look I'm indifferent Adam Gates I don't know what the thing bad or good. That one press conference with the is that was a little weird but I can still play for you coach but I'm not gonNA blame this out of as because let's be real Jamal. Adams he had to go. Why did he have to go because somebody else wanted them and they wanted to give him everything to go. So that's not o Adam. That's the organization saying almost they give to. And they're going to have to pay him on top of that. So that's not Adam cases record. Now, let's get to bill who who's been the common denominator of miscommunication for so many years they started in Pittsburgh, all the issues, the ad there to the point where you know what John Understand me I'm at the leave and sit out a year. Okay and then he gets to the jets and you know you, they're all was recruited by Jamal me they he'd go. You know everybody got the home we homegirl ward as always in the middle of something. Certain point you gotta be like you need to get Middle Mirror is tear yourself because this one is on the bill stopped trying to blame for everything happening wrong with the jets. Had the greatest communication skills. This is go there. No No, no more. This look at them makes Joe. Judge looked like a competent head coach Adam Gay. Oh, had three star players had Jamal Adams your first star safety early on pro bowl. The people are already acclaiming him as a potential future hall of Famer. So lease career, Komo, atoms, ship him off to the Seattle. Okay. Well, let's talk about your star quarterback Sam Darnold. He's young budding gotta Seo about to be Star. He was seeing ghosts last year and I'm going to be the quarterback whisperer. So now let's move to your star running back lady on Bell. WHO. Was a bad man best running back in the league just two years ago in a lady on Bill. You on twitter the common denominator Marcellus if I am doing my math. Is Adam Gay Sir Adam gase off tomorrow Adams Adam? Gaze. Can't get right with US quarterback and Adam gays get right with his running back the problem with. Adam Gates his Bert about Pittsburgh. Bar. avocado art show I wanted to go with you. But I I don't think. The common denominator and this particular conversation. Dale I don't know of Adam Gay says loss control. Control in Control Control Control Janet Jackson was draw Idaho No. But. One thing I do know Gino is levy on bail be in his feelings and he has no problem letting the public know that he's in his feelings and I think sometimes these things come back to haunt him and can ultimately disrupt what his great as on the field could possibly be every single time. The coach makes a decision that isn't what you want it to be lady on you take the social media and say now that ain't it. Coach Levy on. The head coach what are you doing?

REShow: Marcellus Wiley. Hour 1 (10-22-18)

"Rich Eisen on demand, your show your schedule, fifteen minutes after ball dot com. Check out the casts at richeisenshow dot com. Rich is great Marcellus reference to start this edition of the rich Eisen show. Interestingly enough Marcellus in Los Angeles that evolve the fight sequence back in the day. In Pulp Fiction didn't know I'd be starting to show the Pulp Fiction. That's the way it rolls after a crazy while we I'm telling you Tober has been unbelievable in terms of sports viewing sports confluence of baseball and college football and professional football. And now the NBA is back in the mix and this weekend had absolutely all of it. It ended last night on Sunday night football, the weekend with the Kansas City Chiefs. Just putting an absolute beatdown on the Cincinnati Bengals and this chiefs team, despite having lost in New England. The weekend before in my mind is the team to beat in the American Football Conference. Right now they're getting better on defense that offense that Cincinnati brought into the building last. Night is no joke. It's one of the best offenses in the league, certainly with Joe mix and running the way that he is running and you just cannot run anybody against the Kansas City Chiefs. If they're constantly getting the ball and and and playing offense like they're a bunch of eight year old kids hopped up on a bag of skittles playing video game. And this kid Patrick Mahomes is dynamic. You can't keep him in the pocket. And if he stays in the pocket, he will rifle it somewhere and he's got Kareem hunt scoring three times out of the backfield. He's got an elite tight end in Travis. Kelsey, he's got tyreek hill, got Sammy Watkins. He's got an offensive line that keeps him upright and blows open holes. And that may be the best part of his team is the offense of line that nobody is talking about. And the Kansas City Chiefs are continuing to football games and all they need is the New England Patriots to slip up once or twice. And it doesn't matter that they've lost the New England New England still gonna have to get on a flight to go to them. In January. That's the way that they're playing football right now. And then you've got a team out here in Los Angeles the nobody's talking about in the Los Angeles Rams who've done the following just one, three straight games on the road. They have not played at home by the way since that week, four Thursday night football game against the Minnesota Vikings track meet that. They won at home despite Kirk cousins coming in with that high flying offense in Adam Phelan who did in fact come up with a seventh consecutive one hundred yard passing a receiving game yesterday. He's got an elite set of wide receivers in Minnesota. The Rams doesn't matter them either because of what they have on offense and what they have all over the lot, what they have over all over the lot. Now that they've won three straight games on the road that included two division games on the road. They wanna both a paint swap and affair in Seattle in which not only cooks, but Cup got knocked out due to concussions and they still won that football game. Then they go on the road. They play this. I. Sub freezing temperature at kickoff game of the NFL season in altitude, lost Cooper Cup in that game as well and still one that football game in which by the way, Jarod Goff to throw a touchdown pass. But perhaps the MVP of this league Todd Gurley ran up for two hundred yards. And yesterday he scored three touchdowns Todd Gurley in San Francisco against an opponent that adjust almost pulled off a major upset in Green Bay feeling good about themselves despite the loss, no doubt. And they came in and Aaron, Donald played particularly angry, and he threw his hat in the ring and reminds everybody that he's a defensive player of the year. They have an elite, they have, you can make this argument, the Rams they have elite folks on the field. At the following positions, head coach be coordinator, special teams coordinator, the son of. Jim fossil? Yeah, the son of the the, the chips. The son of the chips. Pusher is remarkable. In the way that he's always scheming somebody to try and block a punt or return a punt return a kick. They've got by the way, an elite running back, they've got an elite left tackle. They have elite receivers, Robert woods by the way, they're number one receiver, and he is an elite receiver in this league and talking about cooks and when Cup is in the slot. You could put him up there with anybody slot position. The NFL. They have an elite defensive tackle. They have. You can make an argument, an elite quarterback. They have an elite defensive back. They've got two of them and Peter's into Leib would to leaps healthy. They've got an elite kicker. They've got an only punter. You could make an argument that they are elite at every level in the NFL and nobody's talking about him because they're the Los Angeles Rams. That's a fact if this team was the New England Patriots, they'd be on front pages everywhere, but they're out here in Los Angeles. Where dodger fans are already complaining about east coast because the Red Sox have already won the World Series in four games, five games. Got it right there. And this week, in particular in the sports world, as we will see on this program had a lot of, you know what in vinegar. And Dallas Cowboys fans right now in that rivalry cannot believe they lost that football game. How this team as you see, Todd, Gurley running rampant here in Los Angeles, how that team can't score with Ezekiel Elliott and running back is an absolute head scratcher. And you know how much I love Jason, Gary, I do. I've met him. He's smart and he's sunny. He's positive disposition. Never changes. Life is great, and he's a smart guy. That's now to end game scenarios this year, one in Houston. And now the one yesterday in Washington, DC as the Cowboys despite Dak Prescott deep in his own goal line for whatever reason when you've got Zeke Elliott, that's the point in time where you're done, you're done trying to gain yards, just get outta dodge, don't turn it over punted away. And with that elite defense, Dallas lead defense folks. And this team's identity in my mind should be on defense with the way they're playing offense. Let the defense play and try and get enough points if they can on the road which they can't. So why are you trying to gain yards right on the back of your own goal line Dak fumbles the ball ball comes out easy gimme seven for the Washington Redskins down ten. And yet here comes to act whatever they were doing in the final four minutes because their hair was figuratively on fire. They didn't do the rest of the game. And suddenly they have a chance to tie it. Not only have a chance to tie it there on the thirty seven yard line with a time out left and fifty two seconds still on the clock. They got a time out in their back pocket. And you know Irenei is rich for all those years that Tony Romo war the cloak or got got hung on him. The. Reputation that the Cowboys were own foot shooters. In the final minute minute, half of a game. He sitting up there in the booth talking about how there's more than enough time left, not only kick fecal win the game throat in the end zone. Michael Gallup, their rookie finally caught a touchdown yesterday. Alan Hearns is like eight feet tall, go try and make a play Mitchell. Trubisky almost did at the end of his game against the New England Patriots. He threw it sixty five yards in the air have give give it a shot. Scheme. It figured out instead to place one time out left. It was a six yard pass, and then he three yard run essentially to just set up the kicker in the middle of the field. A penalty and odd penalty for an illegal motion of the football led to a backup, a five more yards. And out river on the head of NFL refs sent out a tweet explaining exactly what what was done wrong and you could see it. It didn't fact get Washington jump off sides, five yards later, fifty, two yard field. Go goes off the uprights, Dallas Cowboys lose toughen. They could easily be five and two. Instead they're three and four game and a half behind a Washington Redskins who are in the catbird seat in the NFC right now, and there's no excuse for it. And Peter King can be joining me here later on the show. And I'm wondering if Jerry Jones has seen and felt enough, I don't think he's gonna make a change in the middle of the season. But I'm wondering if Jason Garrett is finally, in fact coaching for his job in the Metroplex. Good news for the Dallas Cowboys is they have the defense and they have that running back with the ability to put their foot in aground and win enough football games between now and the end of the regular season to win this division. That's the good news. I just don't. I don't know why they can't win on the road. That's a game. It should absolutely one yesterday. Now, how about Adrian Peterson? How about that guy? Hell terrific. He'd been for Washington and they just flat out lucked into being able to sign him because nobody else probably one hundred. And he got a chip on his shoulder and Alex Smith, and Adrian Peterson have Washington in the first place position in the NFC east. And in terms of the you-know-what in vinegar. Michigan versus Michigan state that was ugly before the game. And then it was a Donnybrook between two schools that do not like each other and Michigan now has the pole position in the big ten heading on out between now and through November, should it went out, but that's obviously a big f because the big games coming and if Purdue can do to Ohio State, what Purdue did. Then why can't Michigan. Fair question. But Michigan won't have Ohio State in its house like Purdue had Ohio State in its and had everything work inform. We'll talk about that with Joel Klatt who called Michigan, Michigan state with gusts on FOX. He's joining us in our number three kings coming up in our number two. And as the dodgers closed out the brewers with Clayton Kershaw on the mount, not kenley. Jansen was brought up any setup role. Kenley Jansen got the hold. Wasn't a safe situation anyway, but as the dodgers were closing out the brewers. The Lakers tipped off with LeBron James wearing a home uniform for the first time, a brawl ensued. Suzy was covering the game for her official Lakers podcast sent me a text. I can't. I can't describe it in full language. Some of it's not safe for work, but was holy. You know what a brawl just broke out here because I was on daddy duty. I'm like, what flipped on the TV? And I'm like, oh my gosh. Got caught up completely to speed on that front. And Chris, Paul, Two games Rajon Rondo three games and Brandon Ingram. I don't know what his malfunction was. I don't know what was going on with him, but maybe the bronze been whispered in his ear. Somebody's been whispered in his ear last few weeks like you gotta be tougher. You gotta be grittier, but he lost it. When James harden was asking for three point for basket to count on the foul that he committed right Ingram, just shoved Hardin started this whole thing off then wet in the face of Aref, and as he was pulled away for the scrum, there comes Rondo and Paul face to face and it's Paul Pierce described on the ESPN post game broadcast, these two guys don't like each other for a decade. Plus it has been a long simmering feud between these two guys. And then Rondo spat at Chris Paul, even though he had his mouthpiece still on his mouth. I don't know if he was. Spraying it while saying it or legitimately spat j Stokes like in his like Romanowski fate and j j Stokes face light stuff like full, go Romanovsky on Chris, Paul, I don't know. But Paul, Paul, Tim, and then Rondo punched him. And then there was a feud plan and everybody's pointing out how LeBron pulled away Chris, Paul and not his own guy, even though Anthony pulled away Rondo. I mean, everybody took try to keep a piece here. It was crazy to watch. And Rondo knew he was out. He just walked off the floor by the way, second game of the season. Like your second game of the year? No. First brawl for sports fans out there who think it's a softer Sportsworld and that guys just want to compete and trade swap jerseys. After the game this weekend was for you. A lot of number one in vinegar. This weekend in the sports world, love it. We'll discuss it with Marcellus Wiley who is flat out suited and booted like he is running for office over there. Look at you man, good to see you Marcellus.

Marcello been great man watching you. Now's good to be here with you right back at you. What did we first meet when you're on when you were still playing, right? Yeah. On the NFL network was a correspondent before broadcast media, and they had the the opportunity for players to be a part of the media. I just did it off of my own relationships and that turned into when I was active player. Two years we didn't make the playoffs would show up this new network, I guess, started his four NFL network. Next Mona feel will ladainian Thomas Emma, former t. Teammate, interviewing him because he's in the play offs, and I'm a correspondent. That's how I started. Yeah, I think we started in three. Actually. We're celebrating our fifth anniversary in a couple of weeks. I think you were a cowboy? Yeah, for two thousand four playoff there. You just come off of being with the chargers for three years? Yeah. And you're saying, despite your success. When despite your success in light of your success at now, Fox Sports one. And then all those years ESPN the NFL network was the first one to knock on Marcellus while he's door? Yeah. How about you? Give this a try. You know, give you your proffer for startling. You your props because it's not easy to do what you've done, which is transition from the NFL as you call yourself on your book an NFL outlier to go from that to what you're doing right now. Yeah, it was really impressive. Marcellus I gotta tell you it was the role, less traveled, obviously, coming from the inner city Compton, California, south central and going across the country to Colombia place with such a great academic reputation, but not the yellow brick road to the NFL. A lot of naysayers along the way. Lot of people, Toby, I wouldn't make you achieve my goals and then take from Colombia. One of the lowliest programs at the time in terms of reputation, football wise, and making it to the NFL drafted. So the highest drafty in the history of Columbia football? No. They actually have had some first rounders back in the seventies, you know, yesteryear times. But yeah, second. 'cause I've done the combine so three. I've never seen a Columbia. We haven't seen anybody run as fast as you do. So that's why you call yourself an NFL outline? Yeah, it's just the contradictions from one destination to the next and not many people traveled those same pass. And from that I gained kind of a different perspective of fan experience fell like because I was living a dream. So through my ten year plan, career kind of came into a different mindset, didn't seem like a lot of guys. I wasn't tired of big business football. I wasn't jaded from the experience, a really cherished every moment of it because I was a guy who was told he would never make it there in the first place. Marcellus Wiley here on the rich Eisen show and drew Brees with his five hundred career touchdown pass, and he went five one. You went full on jeans on us by adding another one yesterday, a huge win for the saints over the ravens. And he just here. He is pushing forty now getting out of the pocket, making some incredible throws you were there when he first stepped off the campus of produce and you, you were there when he was a rookie in San Diego. Did you see anything there when when you saw him that, hey, this could be a goat walk into our midst right now? No, I will be can't say no to the point where Joran I even had a little words of difference at times. I was empowered by the team, his rookie year. He was struggling and people wanna Doug Flutie to be our quarterback because he was a veteran ES success in buffalo and Jews gonna be their future. So let be the present and I'm one of the guys that was told to go upstairs and make sure that that change occurred kinda ended Jalen Ramsey mode, but I was more outspoken than I think even Jalen Ramsey after one game, I said, seven, seven, seven flu should be our quarterback who would have known that you pres make me eat those words. And obviously that message didn't age well, but he came in with his positive and negative attributes. People say some people said that daily accurate, not the arm strength. You desire for NFL quarterback, and I got to see him from throw one to still present day. Ace and him do amazing things. What I love about him is the old adage that football's a great game of skill greater game will when a guy tears showed her office body basically when a guy response from that kind of versity from his early playing years, that aversive, he didn't hit the ground running like ladainian Thomas did that same year to become who he is right now, all about character. All perseverance, amazing. I did not know that story about you and breeze in breeze. Okay. Yeah, we're good. We're good. I don't know if Britney stew is wife was my friend the way it went down, but you know, I, it was a different time near wasn't social media and everything. But it's also too though. I mean, Big Ben had that issue. Remember Allen fan, like who is this kid coming in? Yeah, you know, we don't need him right now. We can't turn things over to a rookie. I mean, that happens in the NFL all the time, and I think the way that rookies are now coming out of college. Now, people can't understand that that might have been an issue for veterans. NHS with a rookie quarterback who's drafted high now that you see what Mahomes can do. I mean, ranks golf Watson, you could just go on and on and on. And now you're saying, why aren't these guys playing right now as opposed to why are they playing at all? Yeah, that totally time. I think we had a different leash like our calendars have to synchronize. So if I'm a veteran, I don't have time to wait for you to get good. I don't have time for you to catch up to us and come to speak with us, and we didn't have that lease for him as well. But obviously he proved us wrong, but different times they're so loving on bells going to be coming back soon. One would think did you have an issue with what is offense of line said when he first held out? Oh, definitely one. I've never heard a office ally ever come out and want to be on record names faces to anything they're anonymous was in the locker room there too smart guys. They're the tightest Nick group. They're the ones that want to stay in the back in in terms of attention because they oughta dirty work. I've never seen a collective offense. Align just come out, but that just show me how much desperation and love they have his player that they would cross those lines. Just show how much they care for them. You know, it was almost eagle lists like, look, we know we look bad in this moment talking about this guy's money office. Alignment. Usually don't talk at all, but if he's not gonna come back, we're hurt by that and kind of took it from that perspective as well. You're the only one that's come across it from that perspective. And we'll see what happens as they're coming back against the Browns who I mean. Hugh Jackson saying, he wants to take the control of the offense back in a little bit more with Todd Haley. Now, going back to Pittsburgh, it seems like an odd time for him to do something like that. And Peter King is going to be joining us later on the show. We'll discuss that we do. You have the overreaction Monday or reaction Monday subjects for Marcella, sonata chew on rights. Are you ready to do this? Now we're, we're not going to be split screened or anything like that. Okay. It's just you and I having a conversation. All right. No Rondo Chris, Paul. Now before you get into that, you think Rondo one, the quote, unquote fight. Of course what, of course, please show your work back that up. What do you mean? Of course, he got the first punch off. That's Google. That's how you great fights in school school times. Oh, Ian, I but hunched I artist. But you didn't plus the hardest. Chris got a uppercut in there a straight, right. And that's all after recovering from a first glancing jabs. So I give the points to Chris Paul. It doesn't get. I don't know, man shifts your that, your Celtics, that your Celtics. I'm not perfect that, but now, of course, editing. Now, do you think that Rondo spinning him? Yes, absolutely. Those accidents that are on purpose. We're all guilty of their stepped on quarterbacks fingers and when they ain't man what you doing. I'm like, I gotta take a step Dona. I didn't have to take a step there. Rondo didn't say anything out of his mouth. Rondo was not speaking to Chris Paul. He looks to the side if you watch it, then he looks at him gives a little little little quick one, even with even with the mouth of worn at my entire life. Guess what? I know how to manipulate it. Quick. One look away was telling his one. He didn't do anything else what his mouth, but one action that's telling to whenever you know you're about to do some. You always try to play it off. I mean, this is body language one. Oh one man. You can easily see CSI. We'll have a field day with this. Around there, spit on them. Staples coming soon CBS most watched network. All right. So you think that that was inappropriate. Suspension from the from the NBA two for CPI three, three, four Rondo and four for Brandon Ingram. Who went top rope on this whole? Yeah. He did Ingram desert the most because he he was the fire starter, tough phone. Chris, Paul, you take the high road one because you're Chris, Paul players association president, hey, I'm not trying to get the spended off of some altercation, but you spit on me. So now it's like all bets are off, but still I'm respecting the consequences. So what do you do? You mush someone Mushin to people who don't know what Mushin is. It means I wanna hit you so bad, but I know I can get at trouble. This is bad. You wanna miss your brother. I wanna just deck you. So you must ever come in my face again and then Rondo being for Ronald from say, oh, the fights. All ready started back. And now Chris, Paul had respect, respect that and responded that all bets are off. But schoolyard people told Chris, Paul, once he spit on. You just swing, but he took the AL because he didn't. So. So this goes back ten years. Did you ever have somebody that you hated so long when you're in the NFL that from week one to week last you would have mushed or gone down? Thrown down. I wouldn't you say right now? Yeah. Kennedy and I had our wars, but thinking, yeah, yeah, big. Lincoln like dis for arms big ours, punched me every time I was like menace hurts, but he's the worst thing is when I get a second Lincoln or he pancakes me whatever happens. People are caught up in those moments. It wasn't those. It was their quarter. Second is six. No one took. Notice this another play, and he punches you and you don't get to the quarterback. I mean the fibber later when I'm like all God and I gotta go back. It's third down and you just gotta keep going back to the head of security at the club. This is the biggest dude I ever met in my life and play out there playing Lincoln and I have some wars, but we always smell it off at the end at the end. Yeah, you have to because this is this would see p. three and Rondo has been bubbling forever and they're going to be, you know, they're going to be playing again and again, and again. Yeah. I mean, look, that's the nature of basketball I, it will fester. It will bubble because they have a way to really let it out like Lincoln and I was like, all right. I'll see you on third down, bro. If you really got a problem and we can handle that within the confines of the game been basketball, you get hit two free throws, but I still wanna hit you. So it comes out in these little antiques and I gotta hold onto the ball from Rondo one year. He did it, but Chris trying to grab it or I gotta hit you one of those every now and then they can't really fully let it out. Yeah, that was really something and and LeBron's evening. That's what we. We were all going to be talking about beginning to end and the results that was going to be happening. Nobody that was secondary. Yes. -olutely secondary to what we saw a lot of tug of war going on with the bra right now. The heartstrings seavy threes. My boy, Ronald not may then reports of Rondos girlfriend, pushing c. p. three's wife. So now you gotta deal with that. Reset spilled out all Israel in the field. Yeah. So now you gotta deal with that. You got next to LeBron's wife. Savannah savannah has to talk through that. Go to her emotions with LeBron the Browns to go through his teens emotions because the optics don't look good. You're grabbing another guy instead of us, and then you still gotta deal with the fact that c. threes my boys. So how did he take this all? But I think Rondos thorough enough to man up to what he did wrong privately. I don't know if there's gonna be a Jim, big public apology behind closed doors, Rondo own up. Maybe we should get. This is a new episode of the shop, right? We're LeBron gets everybody in the shop and let's hash it out, you know, you know, let's get hash it and get Drake back. Oh, yeah, you know, backtrack master. He could Jon Stewart. Just just balance. Can we get? Let's just get them off. I would watch maverick Carter dared stirred up manning, let's just get them while. Wow. That's the show just keep the clippers out of the hands of Brandon Ingram comes over the top. Here's what I'd like to do. I'd like to take a break. Okay.

You just started at f s one, right? Yes. After expect you expect a baby gift from Whitlock though. I mean, have you have you have you you tied enough with him yet? We're expect. We're cool. I think he already gave me my first gif CASA going is if people are enough a million two kilo. Okay. E. upgraded tequila pallet. So I respect that already done that. Yes, he's done that. And he may ride that all the way through the baby gifts. I really took care of you and you're hydrating situation, but hopefully he looks out for me, but he's really another gentle, giant. Another guy that behind the veil behind persona, whatever people may think of opinions is really a cool. Cat is always looking out for you. Excellent. But skip is an ask though. No skip is. Skipping the best at. You know what? That's actually. I just took a shot that's kind of the Bronx. And Troy Aikman I just took a show. All right. So let's do you have. Do you have overreaction idea? All right. Here we go play. That would be. That was garbage. Talk reaction mundi's. All right. Overreaction Monday, Chris Brockman is going to read off a headline based on some of the sports. Is it all NFL you mix it up here? There's no, it's not all NFL. Okay. So from this very busy sports weekend throws at a headline. We decide whether it's an overreaction or not. Okay. Okay. I up crisco for they got smoked this weekend and he got benched. Blake Bortles will not end the season as the Jaguars starting quarterback overreaction or not. What over reaction? Yeah, too much. Money's invested in them. You have to give guy a second chance in terms of the benching. How would you respond? Because that's the true sign of your character and how you do it. Adversity. We all get knocked down is if you get up and they were gonna, give them a chance to get up. The only reason why he wouldn't be the starting quarterback for the Jaguars in week. Seventeen is two reasons. One that he is injured to that they have gone ahead and made a particularly bold maneuver in the next week plus because the trade deadline is next week. There's always that conversation about ally. Let's see if the giants get blown out tonight and fall to one and six. I think Bortles is going to be the starting quarterback on NFL network with me in the game. They morning crew Kalma game against the eagles by the way, that's promo. Okay. I think Bortles starts this week in London where he's the Jerry Lewis of quarterbacks. Everybody thinks he's the greatest quarterback ever there because he p balls out in London. I think they're gonna put him back in there this week. Yeah, but do not swap out a Blake Bortles for ally manning if I'm on that team, I'm like, you just painted our problem different, but it's the same problem that's lipstick. No, I know that that that basically Bortles feet is what what sometimes gets him through the day, but don't you think that ally manning would would improve things over there overboard. He doesn't even come in with the reputation now that you have to respect the revere player to player. You know, we, he's protected in New York, two time MVP and that legacy. But right now, I think a Nuff of the guys on the collective have talked about ally manning said, can't get you the ball man shell shocked into pocket, who can't extend plays, can't get off script. That's today's NFL. I don't think he will walk in and get the love, and at least that he deserved. That's an overreaction from both the seat in Marcellus rallies. What's next over there? Chris, Philadelphia Eagles will miss the playoffs. I think that's an overreaction definitely overreaction on their only two gains back into division Washington Lee, and they play Washington twice going four. Do Yari one to head to head against Dallas, easy to spend that one if I'm in the locker room and say, hey, we're fine. We just need to get this hangover behind us. Let's get rolling. What is the hangover though? Right? I mean, because it was whatever that is. We saw it in the fourth quarter they're up by. They were up by seventeen nothing. Yeah. And then he comes twenty one seventeen. They couldn't stop Cam who was just dynamite in the fourth quarter. That was a huge win for Carolina. Yeah. I mean, every hangovers different depends on what you had. And if you look at this team, what they had was underdog tally wearing the dog mask and no one respects this, and then the off season at the become Super Bowl champions, everyone feel like they arrived. Everyone felt like we're the ones now that's going out there as the predators. They responded better when they felt like they were deprave and they start talking trash, it's between ear stuff. Don't feel like you've arrived in NFL any moment specially when you're champion when you get everyone's best. All right. What else do you have over there? Christmas, go to Minnesota. Adam deal, and it's the best wide receiver in football. That's not an overreaction. Take that he's got, he's he's tremendous is terrific back it up. He makes every catch he catches every throw his way best receiver in football. I'll take it. I'm not overreaction. You're right, but I wouldn't for my money. I still take a Julio Jones despite the production issues at time. And that's more of a Matt Ryan conversation to Julio Jones, Antonio Brown. I still like him, but dealers right there. So how about that two years ago, three years ago, death Bryant was right there. It comes fast. It could go up fast. Go down fast with dealings tier one with other to not overreact, but an argument, but an argument. Yeah, don't put them at one. Okay. Don't put them at what do you have over there? Chris saints are the second best team in the NFC behind the Rams that's not an overreaction. I'll take it now. Obviously, this is gonna. This is gonna be decided this coming Sunday night when the saints Vikings play one another. I soon that's the other. Team that you're talking about Carolina be thrown in the mix. You could throw maybe Green Bay in the mix. I wouldn't take Washington over the saints right now. Team Rams out the play someone. I think there's a cliff between them and other teams, whether saints or Vikings, but Vikings play them tough, a cliff? Yeah, I think there's a cliff. The Rams are still semi mash unit guys are falling left to right, and some guys are still trying to play through those same injuries, but not leave. Still Cooper Cup. We don't know the extent of his injuries, Farrell Cooper, a lot of guys that they are on count on January football, having given them full effort just yet because the injury, their squad. By the way we're gonna find over the next two weeks saints next two games at Minnesota home for the Rams. Yeah, there you go. What happens NFC and the scheduling makers are going to the Rams will earn every last bit of it. The Rams take on minutes took on Minnesota beat 'em, ready. They're taking on Green Bay at home this week. They go at New Orleans. Then they play Kansas City in Mexico City. Philadelphia at home? Yeah. The only team it's missing on this list is New England pretty much. Yeah, exactly. I and I think that's how it's going to play out AFC NFC. It looks like those are the two teams to beat chargers, has something to say about that as Well. Chris, another one over there police. This will be Jason GARRETT'S. Last season is Cowboys head coach. If they do not make the playoffs. We're both looking at each other. I, I'll go first is not an overreaction. You think is it if they don't make the playoffs this year this, this division is ready to be taken. They have a defense that is no joke. Jalen Smith is balling out Vander. Ash was a terrific pick. I know they a lot of folks like wears readily. We need a wide receiver Vandereycken that kid and those front four that front four is no joke. Also, they've got Barron Jones on the back end. They are. They should be able if they score three touchdowns if they score seventeen to twenty one points, they should win more than not. And you've got Zeke back there now as Dax suddenly, so useless. Sometimes it really is. I understand they don't have people outside the numbers from time to time that we can talk about. But yeah, yes should win this division this year they should. And that's the conversation. Is it? Is it the coach or is it that Prescott. The conversation for me is interesting. If you look at the numbers has never proved consistently that he can be an elite quarterback under these new rules. A guy who's mentally conservative doesn't pull the trigger as Tony Romo kept pointing out, thankfully is a little slower with the is then you desire for an elite quarterback, missing some receivers that are getting separation are open, but isn't that coach I would assume. So I would hope so. But this is third year and he was thrown to the fire. So it's not like this young third year player. This is a guy that you would expect a little more out of to do things on his own regardless of what's trying to hold them back with. You didn't make it to f s one sitting on a fence. Is that an overreaction or not? Jason Garrett stays beyond this year. So. Overreact. Can you sneak one more in here, Chris, Michigan, wolverines or the best team in the big town. That's an overreaction. Michigan history is the best team. The big. A big react to that now yet you still got Ojo states come November six depend state after after by, they're going to kick the crap out of by. Okay. And then it comes Penn State. Then they've got Indiana and Rutgers in some form of a one of the order. And then Ohio State. Yeah, but they have the ability to be that they have the ability to be that your palm been out there yet? I had not because I've I'm too. I'm too busy doing the the Sunday job, but I'm pumped. Last two weeks have been particularly satisfying, especially after they tried to write off Harbaugh earlier this year after Dame game, you know it was coming. It has, yeah, respond. Do you have one last quick one last one? The Lakers are own two. They will miss the playoffs this year overreaction. They're making the playoffs still second best team in the west. Second. Once again, that cliff is they're going to say group. I think it's an overreaction. They missed the playoffs, but it's over reaction this second best team in the west. Okay. Well, okay, sees to sluggish start. No, don't sleep New Orleans now. New Orleans on Utah. Don't sleep on nuts. I'll give you Utah. Out of that group, a New Orleans. We'll find a way to implode Portland, the two teams that beat you. All right. Yeah, good point. That's true to Marcellus. Wiley. Catch him everyday with Whitlock on f s one on speak for yourself and go get this man's book. Please man, please go get this man's book. Never shut up Marcellus Wiley. Great to see. Hopefully this is not a one off down. Love. Love watching your success. Congrats. Me to forty two because that's what I'm about. Being Gaza suits. That's an overreaction. You've got to wear the suit, though. You Murdoch issued suit, tear it up in turf green. Third, okay. Top of hour number two, the latest on college football, the top twenty five list and why? I think Alice bama's should lose to LSU just lose it. What am I talking about? See, this man comes from one and I'm hot taken like crazy. Football season is here, and no one covers football like cast one sports net. We've got you covered on a daily basis with Dan, Patrick rich Eisen. This might be just a walk in the park RJ bells dream preview and Ross Tucker's fantasy feast podcast. They're just creating more work for me at this point. We also have Jim Harbaugh with attack each day and revenge the jocks with Martellus Bennett. Football's the ultimate soap opera. So download all of these shows in more each week on podcast, sports dot com. Not satisfied. I'm Ben Thomas with an AP news minute. President Trump isn't liking Saudi Arabia explanation of the death of journalist, Jamal kashogi the president tells reporters, he's spoken with the Saudi Crown prince, and he's not satisfied with what he's heard. The United Nations is estimating that the caravan of Central American migrants making its way through southern Mexico has grown to more than seventy two hundred people. A u n spokesman says they are likely to remain in the country for an extended period as a boil. Water advisory in Austin, Texas mayor, Steve Adler says it's the result of unprecedented rain. We've all seen lady bird lake as it's begun to turn more and more into something that looks like like a milkshake. The sediment in the water, just overwhelming. The the system we have.

079 The Kaepernick Situation w/ Marcellus Wiley

"Van leads to repeal where we will shoot base guests marcellus. I was excavated player current box sports one media personality. I've known myself walli for years. He is someone who who is very outspoken very opinionated on a great many things and now he is on the show. Speak for yourself with jason whitlock on the show. They cover a bunch of different topics that range from sports to politics to pop culture so i wanted to get marcellus on here and have a very spirited period debate with him on the current culture of the n._f._l. About his n._f._l. Career when too much debate that he just talked a little bit about it but more more specifically about his feelings towards colin kaepernick. I think it would be fair to say that marcellus wiley has been one of colin kaepernick's allowed loudest critics and all kinds of different ways both from the kneeling itself <hes> to <hes> the current <hes> sort of schism. I guess you'd say between colin colin kaepernick and jay z. I am one of colin. Kaepernick's allowed supporters and i remain that <hes> so it was interesting to me to get hit marcellus on the podcast to discuss exactly his problem with captain this arm and eric reed and kenny stills and any of the players that are choosing to to to protest in the way that they are. I wanted to do that because i wanted to have a rational conversation with a guy i've known for a long time. I consider to be rational. Black man figure out why we are on different sides of this fundamental issue to me. It was a great very spirited along long conversation. Get ready for a little bit of a longer podcast which might be used to <hes> and it produced something. That's very important to produce. No enemies enemies were made also <hes> disagreements were had. I think it is incredibly important to protect ourselves while he doesn't think so <hes> that's a conversation that's happened in barbershops all over america and we had to hit on a reputable good talk. You also talked about his time in the n._f._l. And about is very controversial co-host jason wheelock and why so many members of the black community have a problem with jason lock and whether or not those people are right or wrong so so. You're going to get into that before we do that. I wanna say something real. Quick shoutout to all my friends out there so out to you you guys you guys. We talk hit me up you you. You're you're you're white butcher sure okay. I love you. Guys have a lot of friends from different backgrounds but it's it's it's is i'm shouting out my wife because i put a lot of pressure pressure on the white people and <hes> you know my wife friends your all your therefore it allow allies out there. That's very important. I will say one thing and and this is very important for me to say. I had a homeboy of of mine. He was of the kaku persuasion he recently. It's like pan. What's this whole deal with with colin kaepernick in the n._f._l. And i explained it to them as as best i could. His little later van was this whole deal with pop eyes and chick-fil-a explained it to him as best i could he up this past week and he asked me about something else and i said no no more a mile explaining anything anymore. I'm not your nigga cliff notes. Okay first of all. I'm not even the best resource for that. This goes to anybody who is not black. If you want to learn about the black experience appearance in america james baldwin toni morrison alice walker ten he say coats spike lee bill duke there are so many people that you can learn from that have been so eloquent for such a long time lahj muhammad malcolm x. dr martin luther king junior grabbers davis had rust in so so many people from the past and the present cornell west michael eric dyson raymond kelsen so many people out there that you could go and look at what they've done to get dot <hes> louis farrakhan so many different people you can get all different types of the black american experience go and do the work. I'm not doing that anymore. I listen. I'll have the conversation with anyone. I love talking about my people. They're beautiful as far as summing it up and i'm giving it to you. Know go do the work dive into it because it doesn't it doesn't matter anyway because all we do who is explained the same shit over and over and over again. You know it's the same cycle christmas and the holiday season. It's coming. We know that when the holidays coming i mean that means that why people are going to be up and sometimes they don't want to be is going to be christmas coming up. I bet you this christmas. Day is going to be a problem at a headline like how kim kardashian invented kwanza or something like that. She's gonna celebrate kwanza and then she's going to have started kwanza okay. We got a little bit. The summer left before it's over. I guarantee you a white. Woman will have invented box braids then what happens is after that happens. Somebody comes to me and go fan explain to us. Why kim kardashian didn't really invent kwanza or van explain why it's not okay okay to say that some caucasoid lady may box braids okay then we explain it. You forget it and you do the same shit again. What i'm saying is for anybody not just white people black people all cultures. If you want to really understand understand a different cultural perspective take time to dive into that culture not just from what you read or watch try a diverse set of opinions from all over that sort of cultural sphere do do the work though because you know have to continue to do it if you around real people listening to real people and the luminaries from that spot you'll get an understanding understanding of it asked me not the nigga cliff notes anymore can't tied up the ball. I got too much other stuff to do. Okay is is we can talk. We'd be pows. We talk about the issues but far as explaining to you. I might even qualify to do that. There's no one black man that's qualified to one one black woman. Actually that's not true. <hes> black winning probably could do it. They explain their good at that yeah but i don't even know if you guys wanted from them because they don't give a little bit too much and then you fucking head's gonna pop legit well. I'll tell you what i'll tell you about. The problems young people created. That's how it's going to go and i don't know if you really want that but yeah. We'll probably could very few things they can't do but don't do it to me. No more okay we can. We can talk about other things. I like. We can talk about stuff. I don't know i don't know i tell you one thing we can talk about <hes> <hes> one of my all white homeboys he <hes> this past weekend. He built a birdhouse. Let's talk about that. That's some shit that none of my black homes would ever do they do it definitely wouldn't tell me about it because i put the drive on your ass. It's been your whole saturday building a birdhouse talk to me about birdhouses a little baby bird baths or something like that little stuff like that you know you back in the garden. You're doing shit. That's the white sheet that we could talk about. Don't ask me about my culture anymore. Though 'cause i'm sick of it. There's been nearly forty years of this so i love you but no more cliff notes not here not for me me. I love you guys love you. Marcellus wiley is coming up real quick before we get to ourselves while i would like to say something else armadillos. <hes> solas wildly says in this podcast. This is going to be really quick at a certain point. He says that colin kaepernick has had offers from a <hes> opportunities from a lot of different n._f._l. Teams and for some reason he's either squandered those opportunities or he's turned them down that as a narrative if that i'm hearing all over the place that colin kaepernick has had offers to play on n._f._l. Rosters or opportunities and he's either squander under those opportunities are turned them down. That has marcellus take. That is something that's going around. I would like everyone to know before. This podcast even starts that the people that i talked to that are close to colin kaepernick that are in the know about his situation with the n._f._l. As it relates going back to two thousand sixteen are adamant that that is untrue. Do they are adamant that colin kaepernick has not been offered a tryout not being given the opportunity to actually play on the team or sign with the roster. He has never turn down an opportunity that have been no opportunities that he is being blackballed. So you're hearing that a lot of different places. You're here knows rumblings. Come out a lot different places interesting that they're coming out now but the the sources that i've talked to that no this situation intimately are adamant that is not the case. We're outta here. Popping pills good podcast ourselves while why people calling from ourselves walk what that's messed up. You do them like that still. I heard roy get at them. Say why don't you make everyone at one time for david yellow that rwandan or what not you not because we doing it why people want to gain compromise those wally and mexican chris amick <hes> you know but we were talking about it. I'm talking about maximum ourselves. Just obviously you've moved on to <hes> bigger places. That's where a lot of people i got to know. They're gonna get the the media side of marcellus right right. That's why a lot of people. I got to know well. Yeah i mean if you later to the game like it was. A local radio showed just went. Maybe international in terms of his popularity <hes> but i was in the game. I retire six seventy so i've been on e._s._p._n. Pinball this weird like when you do t._v. You don't hit them in the same place as you do if you do radio so like when you do radio people are are so in tuned so intimate with the experience because it's just you're coming through the ears directly to the brain where there's not this overload or sensory is like like when you own t._v. They looking at your tied and they're looking at oh. Is this makeup messed up. Is he looking at me right before. They even really digest what you just said radio man it. It just feels that it just gets it down to the to the finite details of like boom yea. I'm talking right to you. You know one of the first times that i really realized that maybe i could do this. A a little bit more was because i called into your show audits. Y'all show and i forgot what exactly we were talking about. Where somebody had said the n. word or something like that. Oh you called me and i was i was i was talking to max and whenever you can make max shut up you want you want uh whenever you can make max shut up. You want two million. I got off the phone right maxine something. We can't live call this filibuster. You know me. I'm gonna talk a lot right right the whole thing right so let's talk about where you are now. Speak for yourself f s one whitlock and wiley right jason clear your skin witless you oh boy you've been here before me and boy. You've been to my crib. We hung out for real officially thought he was my dog and then we're going to sell before that you live with like i just had to get that out the way we're we're like <hes> the there's so many opinions about jason. We're locking onto onto. What do what do you find about what my how dot will like. There's a lot of people who think that we're lock is a troll. Some people say he is an attack dog or the status. Let's go among the establishment white man if you will okay. Let's go there. Let's go to award a short on purpose. You want to keep it. Keep it one hundred one hundred. We got all the way through this your your thoughts about jason whitlock seems as if he has a lot of negative things to say about very prominent black <hes> yeah <hes> i understand if you try to piece meals together. You're going to look at it and say tammy coming at brothers like that but one thing let me start from the beginning of a new jason wheelock just a prominent journalist he i hate him or love him. You gotta give props. He got stripes on so <hes> be an active player in the league. I heard about them and you know he would take his shots and probably the stories where he was actually applaud and the players people just glazed over so <hes> i remember he wrote a story about sean taylor. Did i disagree with this. This is when i was in the bloggers fear and being a player so i wrote a response and <hes> we wanna opposite side of that story but fast forward. What was this story about sean taylor. Do you <hes> <hes> to paraphrase think like sean taylor's life lifestyle kind of contributed to him being into position predicament he was us to ultimate oh rest in peace ultimately his demise and him being deceased and i disagree with that based on the <hes> situation <hes> but maximum i always loved jason respected him. He was original thinker. He came on our show before so i had this healthy respect for him because what i hate the echo chamber i hate when i go somewhere and everybody like yeah yeah yeah. I'm like why am i around y'all. Nobody's challenging my thoughts. No one is layering my thoughts. No one is combating thoughts so i can get to a higher ground higher our place. That's why maximum work even though we have similar interests and backgrounds we look at them completely different and we were able to always find unique ground so so i respect a lot for that so he comes on a few times whatever you fast forward to when my contract is up just like a normal football sports contract e._s._p._n. And i was getting recruited by other other <hes> entities into business so fox is obviously one of them and we'll start breaking bread and the business fox at that time this time was rolling out that rain walks was boss's boss's fox's is making a move and competitive so they recruited a lot of baton talent shannon sharpe <hes> skip bayless colin coward jason whitlock. We're locked so they got a lot of. Don't oh my name in there now right auto e._s._p._n. We all over there mustard on the beat broke so we try to eat and it's funny. Jason jason is this. Everybody gets it but i understand when it's your own and you it feels different. Da you know the truth hurts especially when you know that person when you you feel like you have shared in your experience so wet lock is very principle based like raised in the church. Daddy told him no excuses no matter what and <hes>. I don't think his politics are conservative. Necessarily i don't know it's politics. Tell you truth. I know his viewpoints very principle based. Love football us family. I love the church <hes> and if you don't come at them and knows respects. You go have issue so he remind me to do. They used to grow up on our block. The odor uncles the wasn't awesome had oak uncles that was in streets that was lively you know riding around nissan trucks and trying to flaw some older uncles who's just looking at us chicken ahead daylight boy doing live in that is the same living in a certain lifestyle. Write the pin boys and catch up to so you so. We're locked man in a nutshell. <hes> principle based doesn't matter who you are you going to get. It and i really respect him because he's fearless. He goes there any backs up his viewpoint with his facts. Now his facts are mike all facts based on experiences and you out there actually looking into this reality and was supported by numbers or other objective measures like all of us. We always forget that part of this is your lynn lynch. How you see it how you perceive it on top of all the objective facts so i respect them because every day he puts in the work and every day he's going to come with his unique opinion. I think my issue with them is that i see the criticisms that he has against white a white athletes or why people in sports as being more based around game and some of the criticisms it seems like he has with black athletes <hes> besides the thing that he wrote about serena williams back in the day. You know i it has to do more with things that are outside of the game like you like when you talk about the bron james and you assert or you accused lebron james of making his kids. It's basketball game about himself that speaks directly to the heart of lebron as a person but as a dad because if you telling me that a dad atwood go to a basketball game and want to make that kids basketball game about him. You're essentially saying that. He's a defective father like you and that's a leap right there but i'm gonna give you that i mean that's how you received if to me. You're bad if you go to your kid's game and you make it about you well. Let's be real about this <hes> to me. That's one. That's one <hes>. I don't protect my co host. I go at max. I go and michelle beedle. I go with log. They deserve it on air. If you watch and certainly in these situations i respect them fully but i will tell the truth. <hes> don't look at me. Y'all one <hes> don't look at this picture of me through that frame. I it's funny. I know that comes with the territory but everyone looks at you through that frame not. No you get that f-from t._m._c. like they look at you. Yeah i'm not even saying i'm not even keep doing it disag- knowledge that's what you're doing. Let's talk about <hes> <hes> dad who goes to a game because i row every time i'm out with my little man to his activities because there's not only a dad who's doing too much. There's a momma doing too much and there's a coach living vicariously to a four year old. I see it all day now. I'm not taking shots at you but don't act like there's not a huge population of people who who are trying to live through the next these kids that look like lottery tickets at minimum scholarship and lebron the neen any of that but the same arolla give dad and i'm like why is he on a court then. Why is he yelling then. Why is he taking attention away from. His son is where lebron maybe stepped upped over that line. I love lebron saying i'm a part of this team like a superstar just getting into layup kids that was doing it right right right and so i talked i talked to the director of the tournament and they said that as far as the people there they dig that love that it draws is at a tournament lebron so engaged in especially when you look at that type of story with a brother who inhabit and longed for yeah to me sometimes when i'm looking at that i'm like let's say you feel annoyed by that. Why use a national platform students demand for father well. Let's not also validate overcompensation like okay. We understand the brown. You didn't grow up with that but we can't let everything you do. That's in excess just be validated by oh. You didn't grow up with that. There is equilibrium gra librium here. We gotta respect and lebron. Did this the year before. This is what tripped off of i because i live in this world of sports entertainment guy who got a research a nerd alum computer. He did his at two thousand eighteen. Nobody said damn thing it comes out in two thousand nineteen because his likeability suffered you come to the lakers first thing lebron iran does his land. He says hey man come blaze pizza and covert c._d. Wherever <hes> you know laker fans he did. He show now okay so they already like what what up dog you in l._a. You ain't koby you already over here. Flaking then they started off by the way if you know l._a. Flaking perfectly okay and acceptable in l._a.'s somebody it was actually being being a part of the culture here depends on what saudi wilshire okay okay. You can't flake on sa. Go sow okay so anyway <hes> he did that. Then you're not koby hit the murals up and then they had a press conference and then they they had the the teen celebration he flicked owners like the jimmy bus like yo lebron and are down holiday party so people started looking at the brownlow sideways and he goes is out there and gets hurt longest injury of his career lakers. Don't make the playoffs he trying to trade anthony davis bla-bla-bla all and he's saying that is because now you likability so many people need to look look at sports through the likability lands when it comes to media if they like you guess who's writing these stories someone who likes you. It's going to be glowing. They didn't like lebron in that moment the same thing he did the year before they just snooze right by because he was still lebron went to the finals was bald. Come the lakers under perform aw by expectations back back back back so i'm not blaming wedlock. I'm not blaming individuals. I'm blaming that the climate change for for lebron and this is what you expect when you coming down the ladder or someone's is been on zest for awhile will on them for doing it and equality commercial damn. We can't celebrate equality <unk> aquatic. You're not equal brown. You're six foot apple was trying to promote equality anyway but but you guys got a great show goes through perspectives are dueling at times do. Do you ever find yourself in the do you agree with lock more than what you. I thought that you would now that you know him on a human level. Do you have a different opinion. I mean on before but not you work with them. You have a different opinion of them before you went into before or so. No i don't agree with a more <hes>. I will have a greater respect for our disagreements because you know put that you know you humanize anything in the beginning of racism and discrimination is i don't know you so no matter what you're going through your plight not process and it because you're not a human to me but as football has done for me when i put my hands in the huddle and finally saw a white hand and i was like damn i don't even see a white hat at home at the creep in my my my hood and i see one in this huddle where you from what's up what you talk to me and sudden you don't look at things so much for the differences some of the similarity so it may come out like assimilation or selling out or changing a compromise but what happens is you humanize your differences and so i disagree with him a lot a lot like if you watch the show the daily if i had to keep a scorecard. It's probably six or seven disagreements but what we do. We'll maxon idea is we ain't sitting up here. Shooting sports talk turned into like combative talk like all turned into that no no not speak for yourself. That's why it's called. Speak for yourself. I'm saying but most tehran now turned into combat if talk because you get the boom people want click into the drama. It takes the way to draw from their world and puts it on. You and i want to hear y'all get it pulled this tug of war rope but maximum were able to layer you disagree. I disagree. We had arguments about ants versus roaches on our show. It blew blew up right because we disagree but we we don't build this thing into some wit loc when i disagree with him. I make sure that i keep my eyes on the prize trying to build to a new space. He's that incorporates everybody out there watching not just my side or his side when you hear people say that he's an uncle tom <hes> do you think <hes> that is. That's true no uncle. Tom sell out coon. When you say those words to me or to anybody ready i know or it just leaves your mouth immediately i say can you dismiss us from the grown persons table like like boy citra down like i say that because plus you've run out of ammunition in terms of facts in terms of properly articulated opinions so now we gotta go ad hominem now. He's just gotta go. Ah forget you. I hate you in a word. I'm not built like that. I'm not a fighter despite from my side by my look tell them from sale bill compton compton via south central via harlem. Damn you say that that that didn't get your harlem is all the planes at school yeah so you're saying saying that that that didn't hard and you didn't make you. I mean not just you're not hard. I didn't make you a fighter with his own. The heart i'm so hard ain't gotta be hard. What y'all saying like. That's what people would. I understand what you really from it. You ain't got you ain't gotta flex it. You ain't got to pick your minutes yeah. What was m._c._a. Was all head. He was the wax f._x. Look you almost all he was slash comedian right because he had y'all sound like some bitches. Both y'all better skier to go pill these. He's poke the dog. I love him so much. Outrage me with them words but the point is i grew up where there was a condition dishes where the ones who really were about it. They want to promote it. Dan want to show it because i was like what i'm already going to go there. I got this security purity but the ones who weren't necessarily the general always own the mission show more because they wanted to be general so when i when i get in these situations situations and somebody calling you out your name i'm like oh. You're trying to prove something what you're trying to prove and it's a it's a myriad of reasons why people try to prove something depends on the individual. Now you talk about football. Obviously you had an incredible football career well. It's gotten better since i stopped playing toward the damn good when i'm retired now incredible. Did that tell you what i'll look at it. I'd like to get to where you were to be drafted as high as what you were make it the n._f._l. Have what ten eleven year career in years ten year decade in n._f._l. I was just and this is no disrespect to any of these guys. I was just looking at like hillis. We're just looking at paying hill fascinating pay meals thirty two years old right. You know what i mean and you think damn like it's his football. Career is over so many of the guys that were so big thirty one thirty two thirty three or whatever they didn't get a decade in the league. They didn't get they. Some of them got four or five years no if you play ten years n._f._l. That's big time yeah. So what did you learn from football because you obviously you show great football. Promise early in your life then you go columbia. <hes> you know is a lot different from from the odd people wouldn't have gone there right which we hear so much about football football teach you if anything <hes> man start start from the beginning <hes> seven eight years old plan football. The first thing i learned <hes> is that i had a talent that needed more more than just talent to be properly groomed in blossoming. <hes> think about that like i'm in a huddle and i'm faster than you. I'm in a huddle and more <unk> agile you a quicker to you but that doesn't mean guarantee success because you can still tackle me and i remember being young and like damn. I gotta work at me and good i was in. I gotta to work at being. That was the first thing i learned for football. 'cause i was like hey better to me. We race each other. Please twenty our history and beat you in a twenty yard dash. I was that kid were but i was like damn. I gotta work at being good because i got the ball and i was score. Literally for minimum touchdowns a game. I got the ball fifteen twenty times what was happening to other ten carries right so the first thing that clicked me like you gotta work ibn goodall and then the second thing was like i said before i start seeing different. Complexions is in different backgrounds in my same huddle my same team from there. You start to really get from football pain. Tolerance work at dick discipline dedication all that corny stuff on the locker room when you walk in but it was real and then you learn how to fight to adversity versity and then you learn not to be scared by physical presence so when someone walks off a bus and you're young minded or you just getting into the game you see six six three thirty you think he's great. He's too big on a muscles when you play football and you put him on his back and then you realize the five eight one seventy we do put you on your back right. You start to know which way is up. Never judge a book by its cover so i think my decisions were heavily early navigated by my football experience but then it clicked football's a means to an end is now my identity. I'm not a football player. When did that klink high school now that early yeah you know why because i was when i tell you i was shit like in pop warner five ever right. I got tapes to prove it by by your top five point one five running back popcorn ever getting recruited. I couldn't even get chilly cheese fritos. I go to the snack stand out of my game. It was literally recruiters like yo. We got talk. This is free social media so i don't ronnie james and all but yeah it was a problem i was like okay. Cats pairs walk up to me. If you stop number five we can win. I'm like i'm number five finger fence everybody in my face. I'm smoke. I lose a game. I was in my fourth year. Now's my championship game so we life off fifty and oh before my championship game i loss so it clicked when i'm winning national track championships set national records and and i'm killing it in football and i'm a nerd like i was a nurse first academic decathlon all these spelling bee and i'm like boom also had oscar slaughters in my knees had a to you had that gross lurks the it was awful and i had to wear a cast all i have to wear a cast on my left knee for a whole time and i had the same thing same thing and it's shot me down like i went from two to which was still nice but it wasn't that deng was shot you down about it though 'cause i i wasn't coordinated. I wasn't as fast. It's a rob rob me of a lot of my athleticism so is shot me down and then i realized i thing i realized it was like damn when you ain't that guy. There is a lower class and there are classes on any team any situation. I was like oh they're not laughing at jokes to say oh coach is looking me in my eyes all all the time when he talks about us winning the east looking at you only me i think they got a block right now. He's as looking like all right and then i was i was was getting sorry i wasn't as good just a real and then it clicked like you ain't no damn football player. You play football so let's play the game rules change for me and then once that happened <hes>. I started looking at the schools that recruit me differently. I i changed my liz. I was like nine. Go no football factories much respect to all those who went to the big football schools but i was like that's a four year mesmerized experienced and they were talking about jogging suits and the gloves and all the girls into stadiums liam's now. It's like you know what it means to an end. You won't be like you said peyton hillis thirty two how about you're gonna be twenty two and you gave all of your opportunities up to go to to a greater academic school to do what to be second-string four star recruit at a school just so you went to some bigger parties. I start making different. Calculations nations respect to all who did that and that's why you chose columbia. What specifically made you choose columbia. Who recruited you first of all <hes> what schools u._c._l._a. the top schools news with u._c._l._a. Cal berkeley columbia <hes> arizona state <hes>. That's why i narrowed it down to toews columbia overdose school because one it was my recruit troops really. I didn't choose it like i. I still was seventeen. Eighteen year old caught up so i'm like i came back from our crew. Troops telling cats <music> y'all man i went to u._c._l._a. and this and that and they all my boys all my peers damn man when you go up the rosebowl come on man. You got hooked your boy all again and then i remember telling my teachers and they were like oh that's cool. That's nice congratulate. You've been working hard. I you know tremendous success but then when i went to columbia came back i told all my boys man i went to columbia well cologne essen where that is that in south america this dealer right but then i told my teachers the same thing the eyebrow jumped off the air opportunity of a lifetime opportunity life go there and i was like why they started to break you down to me. Now still was caught up but i was like you know. What if i'm truly going to be engaged to. This is a means to an end. I gotta have the greatest alumni base i can have. There's going to be uber successful and let's be real. I'm going to be a big fish in a little pond so if i can't ball here and get out of here jerry rice went to a small school walter payton with a small moscow south to the sweat both of those guys right yeah so if i can go to a small school and get it. I ain't gonna blame my school. I'm gonna blame me so i rolled the dice and went out there. What did you learn your name man being being a guy like that and ivy league environment would you learn at columbia was the biggest takeaway first thing was like social shock because i love new york just fantasy because i'm i'm born in nineteen seventy four so when breaking comes out beat st ramo and all that right i was like there's only two cities in the world i gotta just touch right is in new york and i'm already in l._a. Let me get to new york so they had a leg up because of that but beyond that the social shock like just a city is pedestrian everybody walking gain in l. a. Everybody drive in so that was weird. People cursing you out like like civil workers like like like do take my bags and stuff right. Hurry hurry up. I was like you wanna like notice on my head. <hes> it was weird. How i was kinda. Caught off guard you see twenty dues who's in new york in front of a boat dago or brownstone. That doesn't mean a dang in terms of criminal element are like yo what's up or you won't smoke but didn't competent in l._a. You see twenty dues in one huddle. You like what's up. What's happened what's going down so that was weird to decipher and i think beyond that when i got into the classroom setting on campus i learned you're so many pathways up to top. I learned that if you go to runyon y- yeah you go into cement. Are you going at one trail but if you really stop and breathe there's so many damn ways at the top of this so during class with people who are fourth generation arrays in and some people so when you look at the billionaires because when we talk about success as african americans typically. We're talking about people who are ridiculously really exceptional. It's something that everybody tried to do right. Yep yeah i. I don't know anybody who's tried to start like shipping company what i'm saying. I don't know anyone one who tried to start like a male company or company when you look at the billionaires when you like the guy or like is all right and in nineteen fucking sixty six is when he got his first loan to start jay w <hes> morgan shipping and then it grew into a conglomerate as all of these things so so or or all kinds of different ways things that people have done that are outside of what we're told to do doctor lawyer thing now that we're told to do in in order to be successful when you're at a place like seeing those people seeing them and like you said their offspring and its success in generational wealth is <unk> actually being materializing your face. One cat got twenty five thousand dollars a month for his allowance and got dropped off at school in a helicopter and tried to downplay late at night and i it's such a part of their d._n._a. In existence they actually feel shame and i was like what the hell that's aspirational if your family got to set up in those situations so i learned that like you said dr bus manny started he started to become a billionaire off a seven hundred dollars was that he saved up his boy and start by one piece of property dr bus in the seventies and then boom and now he was dr bus so i'm with these kids and the kids are them and they're. They're telling me stuff that. I just never heard like one. We had maybe four players in in a failed our ivy leaguers but we six owners wow i said oh wait a minute and then i started to realize that these guys are going to make it because of what's between their ears and i've been taught you're gonna make it because of your body right so when i started to look that calculation i was like okay. I'm uses body because i know is going to be a meteoric. Rise is gonna get my family from zero to sixty gives you a head start. Hell yeah but i'm never gonna lose sight. Oh what's the end game which is really tried to get this generational wealth to take someone. Just wait office home now. You you play colombia. Do well you get to the n._f._l. You get the n._f._l. Career we're not going to relitigate that but i do want to ask one question. <hes> what is what was the worst thing about being in the n._f._l. Just a whole like my entire existence macho n._f._l. The worst thing about it forget about forgetting about like all the things. We know that are awesome about it. What was the worst part part of the n._f._l. Who'll mr t. say one word. Damn pain was okay. I got to i got to answer this. Twofold one on is the toughest part is the pain that you have to go through to just get it. It done like the rigors of the game like football is a presentation of and a wall in front of you. Every single play play every single day thing about football is for real it is moving another man against his wheel to progress down the field he in other words you to go and i gotta get there so everything i did was based on resistance and then guess what i feel that and he felt the two and he probably felt more to me. 'cause i was successful but still you know you've been in the fight. Even if you win so the pain the days i couldn't wake up and just walk to the bathroom. Always tell the story oriented. I keep a gallon leg jug everywhere. I go work home car because there was a day when i woke up the middle of the night and couldn't move and heat up and i couldn't move and i was like i gotta pee and i used to always have cheetos and like submitting nabobs dresser. All just for comfort i wake up at midnight is right there right so one day i was i came move and and i literally sat brain fire tale leg lift. No betsy wouldn't fire wasn't doing no but then the looping was coming. Wait a minute. You pissed you bad. You didn't dare now idea wasting using using their mix it with me but i did it and then you know what i was like. Oh man so pain that it took to just go through everything everything even. I made a pro bowl and didn't practice one time of year. 'cause i had surgery on my foot and people like you're amazing and i bought into that that hype but i signed a deal with the devil doing that because if you work on your craft every single day if you ain't getting better you get worse and it caught up to quick so i think the pain <hes> the other thing that was horrible about the n._f._l. Experience even though i love it don't even confuse it. Don't just click click into right now but he hated n._f._l. The other part that was so so damn defeating was the fact that you couldn't fuli like just go out there and <music> get it is so fickle everybody's good everyone's great and you can have a six pack run sand dunes up and down getting getting proper rest. Turn your phone off not dating not hanging all in and i've been there and then you go out there that i play yeah joanna's back downhill and climb back up rehab that's. Why did you retire because no matter what you do. It ain't a guarantee in sight in the sport of football anytime it can happen to you. In any time i broke my foot in practice and they tried to protect me because i was the new invest bell the biggest deal they ever had in chargers history. They don't it does wally like i'm like i'm not or quarterback does wiley and i'm just over there doing the double team dong back yeah done when you heard andrew retire. Would you think <hes> i was shocked like everybody like damn. That's what's happening this weekend. Like andrew luck retire with two weeks left before the season but then i had a tremendous respect because personalized that story. I felt that <hes> is weird. I could have been much better as a pro. I mean i made few pro bowl only started in one <hes> <hes> have my accolades certainly got my goals accomplished which was being real to get my money. You got paid and i mean i wouldn't. That's what i had to do for my family. I'm an even if selfish go but when i saw him say enough's enough. I remember thinking damn only one regret. I have from playing football them years. Why didn't you professionally rancher because i got. I was gonna say professionally restaurant. What you mean just tap out for a year re- recalibrate rehab get your body back because i i had i had four surgeries in three years that rob me prime despite ball and pluto surgeries and we have i was just killing myself so when i fell off the cliff it was they was steep. Brother red shirted just like you know what stop trying to be all mighty heidi and try to just do it all just tap out whatever they call you and then come back you right andrew luck retire because he finally realized i can't can't be andrew luck. I could be great to ban. It'd be great to marcellus. I'll be amazing to the world but i find me the hell mild they're doing because he knows the inevitable. Habitable will come sooner or later we get critical and in his all going to go down from there you think he's coming back or do you think he's done here. I'll think the n._f._l. Though i think the first place x._f._l. You think andrew luck is going to leave the n._f._l. I think it was sixty million dollars on the table and go play in the n._f._l. With his dad 'cause jacksonville gonna be real first of all. I don't know i'm saying they try to x._f._l. Before i don't do that and fell yeah bill belichick field and cleveland ed mainly lovely were you you're saying to you is viable that he would leave the n._f._l. And go to the x._f._l. Look i'm over here. Being i'm over here wishing him happy. My wishes i want him but wouldn't it be amazing if he rehabbed recalibrate braided red shirt and then his dad's like so what you do he's like dad which we do like yolly needs some pop wherever it is andrew luxurious league yeah so how much got daddy because i really don't know obviously very left up to four or five hundred million on the table so it ain't a dope thing we already have generational wealth. 'cause you played leak. Pops got got a twenty million dollars guaranteed contracts the commissioner and this mcmahon and behind this thing right so let's wait a year or two. That's all bubble and they let me you come in there and jumping this and let's do this. I say that's a real option or go back to the league the same league that boobs you when you were walking out the damn stadium which is nothing wrong doc <hes> in terms of going back to n._f._l. Because it's the biggest baddest but if it were my daddy right if my little m._j. Who four now if he was in that position you want to help us out speaking of the little j. I've met little man before i was on my cell is house. Your muscles does something special with the eye with the hotdogs the hot dogs we was through some hotdogs on the grill muscles some special with the hot dog shelter nick nick knows niknam we sit there and and in just drank off the keelan nick said that nixon some stupid mix. It wasn't a sense tracy. Mcgrady was better than kevin durant. He loaded grenade run. I love you. I know okay but your son like obviously with with your wife well. She is a athlete. Yes more athletic than me right so your son is probably most likely unless something happens. It's going to have a genetic head. Start art over a lot of the kids right you. <hes> seems to have gotten a lot of a rich in richmond from football uh-huh. How do you feel about him playing one. He can play flag football up until the high school years now. He's a rising ninth grader greater and he's like daddy. I wanna play tackle football. Because one i love the game too i will be dedicated to the process three <hes> hope to get a scholarship for i wanna go pro me and him go to his favorite restaurant and we're going to book table table way in the back and we'll talk hours about the good the bad and ugly and if he at the end of that conversation is still committed to that grind go ahead brother but before then i'm protect you from yourself like a corner man. I was eleven years old man bleeding at my elbow <hes> in class sprain knee. You know getting therapy between elementary school impresses. They drove that. I did the want to get out of your conditions. My my my my social class. I mean my mama was smart as <music> all outdoors but she had two kids at seventeen and nineteen and i come from a very aspirational family even though the outside world maybe can't see it at first glance my grandmother <hes> was in watts california when the watts riots happened back in the sixties yeah and she had her little spot over there and then the watts riots is happened. She said i gotta give me and my six kids out of here. So into in the same spirit of being aspirational she moves from watts to compton. The people don't know companies will be widely nice very nice white. My grandma moved to compton. Dan compton kevin costner from content paul tagliabue's crazy like dale where he lives but these are quicker some so i'm like i'm like that's that's my family. My mom has two kids at age nineteen and she's like my kids are not going to grow up the way i i grew up the way i'm living as she was a straight as doom. Mom said we gotta move somewhere better in terms of school systems and that was her first thing and we moved from competent to south central now think about how like wow those seem like small incremental steps but they were huge leaps in our family so i'm living like hood ish. I'm right title off sauce in so it's good it's like damn i'm so close to wednesday hills and ladera heights walter fetal heart and the boy. I used to go to school with had a house. Apartment was decided they live room and all four of us sharing a bathroom right. I could see <music> right there bra so it gave me a drive but it also just defeated me because i was like damn. I'm sharing beryl my sister. That's not even a bedroom. We lived in a one one and three quarter bedroom apartment so our fourth wall with sheep of fourth wall was like curtains it can it wasn't a wall so whatever for my family did in the living room shared space we just was to osmosis living right right watch eddie murphy delirious. We watch. I'll don't go to bed. Y'all better now. Listen to this and kate this talking about. How would you say right right so i live. I grew up faster than a desire to give back to a man when you live in the net existence. It tells you a lot you start to get a greater perspective active and i started to gain perspective to always be inviting to new opportunities even though some of them hurt to new information even though some of it hurt mark because it went against the grain would i was conditioned to knowing <hes> so we're on the subject of the n._f._l. Talk about someone who has a brand new affiliation affiliation with the n._f._l. One shawn corey carter <hes> better known than jay z z one thing that i know that we be mentally disagree on okay. <hes> is jay z's <hes> nations new partnership with the n._f._l. Oh okay <hes> we. We don't be mealy disagree on jay z. I like jay z. Jay z. have utah for you as far as rappers what you mean investors yeah l. l. utah. He's definitely talk about his age how far from me probably but in terms of success and accolade and go but in terms of like combine number come on man myself odri k. myself wayne before we got. We got three off. Tell me right now to jay. Z's not a top five rapper rapper artists nigger i use the word came the fire back jay. Jay z is not a top five rapper of all time rapper. I wouldn't say that i would say artist <music> success like it's tom brady the goat at quarterback obviously but in the combine of quarterback skills which i would think rap skills you hit me okay ringing. We'll we'll autumn. Albums is amazing table jay z. The argument not come back here so so this is the way i look eh acu on a budget in here so so this is this this is this is what this is why allegations jay z is number one and one category for me and number three in another. That's where i'm at but but in top five so he's number one in the most successful rapper of all time definitely defuse number three in the greatest rapper of all time list behind big park and then his hovis third okay <music>. I'm not arguing that because my argument is not too far from there to even just wakes you but you just said he's not a top five rapidly who better than jay z whose father five rivers historically been anything like rappers like if we own. We got a backpack on. I got a backpack. Oh we own the corner we give them the same five rappers blue ready for andre three thousand okay. I don't agree but go ahead on here that i get up in the growing persons tell you why andre is ill andre is ridiculously. Obviously ill. He's crazy ill but he's not just like better than hope not like r._j. It's not just like better. No but continued is your. This is your show so some of that money yes <hes> he was over. He didn't jay z. Jay okay okay okay. Are are you still here. Are you to go so you're not so you're saying that jay z didn't come with it on his no. Yes reasonable doubt graded yet and you know would it also is southern play a list of cadillac music. You know where it came behind that. I'm talking to south. Do you not know maybe there's there's something i gotta help you with that so you say it so. Wait la- wings eyebrows laughing at me on is not. I'm not laughing at you once again. I'm from south louisiana. You're not saying nothing about little wayne. This is my settles while he's list go ahead. <hes> jerry is q. Jerker ice cube okay payback's the talking about here three okay <hes> for me. Scarface does a lot not mad at that okay. I'm a horrible recall so my sister's going when she sees his full. You've got this this initially but man rap like people who grabbed lyrically you rappers larry's spitting like jada kisses better as a rapper than than jay z rapper like cobb is you don't know where to draft him. You just vizquel skill. Don't do that but he's not a greater artist j._d. Kids better rather than hope. You'll angry rapper backpack say beat go same be jada will mirko now see now you win excess burt. I've said he made photofinishing but i would go with jada kissing. Okay okay my nigga. This ain't even my top five as some news like you just you by the way that's in no way a shot at kiss his love jay everybody. Everybody is taking a shot everybody. Who would you say everybody that you just name can't flat out. Well doc and guess what joe bid j._c. I can't look i'll take that aol. See i'm housing. They have some more keep going better than jay z because we cut this and the one thing and then put it out there who else out there <hes>. That's a biggie biggie. Yup can't argue with that pocket. Doc is own offense for me 'cause robbing into yes. That's what i'm saying but as artists didn't start is right. Yes exactly exactly sorry five doc you go cut that up. We cut it up all right muscles while we're gonna pay complex rap radar so the the j._c. partnership with the n._f._l. That's all started okay. Give me like you. You heard me on it. I'm i heard you disagree. I hear you on it. Well why you don't like it. Go well. It's not that i don't like the partnership in a of itself. What is the method in which hold went about it right so like this so. I think that personally to me personally. You know i do this michi to write whatever and everything well to me personally for me. You gotta go somewhere so i i think and i i'll give my sister patrice couriers credit for having having said this is that jay z de across intellectual picket line and the the year ago said that as well as a lawyer i give credit to the black woman the i love you but that'll happen to kris haines when he he actually broke the news on kawai and paul doors because <hes> wards broke it a minute later. I hereby gay what was a great darkness <hes> but i i think that to me number one. You had to happen number. One jay z. had said that he was with colin kaepernick. He had he had worn cabinet. Jersey cyanide put his naming the song or or or the hollywood video and then ask cabinet continues his fight for employment in the n._f._l. Or to be made whole again about what happened and <hes> jay z. does a deal with them <hes> and to me. I would feel like the r i i said this before but our first imperative as people from the community as people from culture to one another is protect each other <hes>. There's an entity that i feel like he's being unfair to myself. It's not just 'cause we homeys and because you know we've known each the four longtime. I call this guy and asking for advice on things because you're a black man. The first thing i have to do is make sure that you're being protected and that <hes> what you want and what you need him and you feel like they are being denied from. You know and i'm not gonna lead to someone that is doing okay and and that respect. I feel like jay z fell colin kaepernick that because as he seemed to be on co with it then to go and do it and not even have any sort of conversation with him. <hes> in any way to me was i hear de well laid out my pushback. Is this thank you my pushback exists before you point or if you desire to point kapernick and his camp one finger out you gotta put three back to self you gotta clean up your house before you start talking about mine cabinets in partnership with nike nike supplies the leak peak in terms of uniform and apparel so if you have no problem with someone who was partnered with a league that is quote unquote blackballing you because of your nike deal for money for cabinet then why do you now have a problem with a black man who has partnered with the same league that is blackball. You will never answer that question because there's no real reasonable answer that shows hypocrisy. He has answered it. Go to me. Oh so you after that right. You heard right so go. No no no he go to me in that phone. Got the clove with that phone the screen protector this this is why i say go cap has been with nike nike for a long time. Yeah we all do that the the so he had been with nike for a while his partnership with nike started before there was any he had made a decision to sit or kneel. I respect that so his his his his his deal with nike goes back a long way win nike decided to do is just do it campaign. They want it to be a part of it. He used that ah platform to talk about some of the things that he had been wanting to talk about for me. You should to me that is no different than lebron james nike. I want you to be part of this social initiative or or or or or anybody else using the fact that they're signed with this <hes> this this this <hes> this particular corporation to use. I use it for some good to me. Does that mean that he can't have an issue with the n._f._l. Or an issue with the man that he thought was an ally in his issue with the n._f._l. And those things are on the same and that's why at this point. I just wanted to set that up. Lay lay it down. I capper nick and his camp has turned this entire issue from an and issue to either or issue and that's where my frustration grew and maybe boiled over. Look we are all fighting for the same damn thing especially if you from that situation which which is the lowest rung. We'll get into that capper nick. It's supposed to be an it's going to be capping you coming at the n._f._l. You trying to you come. I'm in with nike and jay z is coming to the n._f._l. And he's coming wooded his portfolio and his allies his network and we're supposed to aggregate that what happened was maybe not even capper knicks full doing but nasa eric reed and others have turned us into either or conversation and continue to do it and it started for me. What really jumped on my radar is the entire list of issues that i have with how they showed their leadership was at the super bowl big boy and travis scott and that whole like it's either them being being sell outs or whatever may be are not down with capri nick instead of and they are also trying to increase the platform and awareness trevor scott getting a half a million dollars. Don't sneeze at that so when the conversation went from and like they wanna get in and marceau's anything but when it away from marcellus or van marcellus or either van or him. That's when you lost me brother. That's new you lost sight of not only your calls but how we roll. We look jay z. I am not sticking up for jay. Z obviously when my top five lists. I'm not sticking up for jay z but what i will say this. The game has changed therefore the rules have changed and a lot of people out there. Don't want to read the rule book. It's like this is something that this guy told me now. I was in god like barbados or something and cabdriver was talking about era but he game and wisdom and he was like you know what's funny about people. They never read the manual and he was talking about when you got your iphone soon you do is doing this and you do this right and they're six months later. You be like damn i can't. I can't think mccown's air some and you homie. Come up to you like oh. All you do is a._b._c. You like how you know that already or have you been doing. I'm looking looking at this capture nick situation as in entirety as a whole and saying why we keep talking about race when this has always been argument that has been interwoven between racing class and i i mean you can google cabernet class conversations and it may come up very few searches but you google race ace in this boom. Jay z. understands the class argument and race argument deeper than all of us. I grew up in the projects. I didn't grow up in that. The situation and when jay z is like grown from that to a billionaire status that's class and then you tell me i'm always black never going away cavernous black. That's never gone away now. We got something that we need to understand. We need to fix it for those who have no voice who have no power. That's the lowest wrong in our society where race meets class at its lowest level and the lowest level deemed by society in race is black and the lowest class is in our urban ghettos across america so when knows two things coexist in lie you gotta salute to somebody who's been through that situation or at least say and and you and i let's tackle this. I don't think jay z basque backstabbed because jay z is planet class conversation while cabinet in a large sum mission nations playing more of a race conversation a couple of things number one the very well set a the cabernet <hes> kneeling or sitting sitting had to do with social injustice and police brutality right and and what racial discriminations <unk> pressure okay so which brings up some glass when the police beat the hell out of you <hes> or shoot you or do whatever <hes> very rarely do. They have a bank statement handy <hes> so they they don't they don't know how much you're worth zoom that if you're in a poor neighborhood somebody's take places in poor neighborhoods. It's assumed that these people are poor and everyone was it. Black people are poor but the class argument has more to do to me with the structures that put us in these in these situations than actually has to do with the system of violence that the cops <hes> use against us and how they sort of devalue blocks. I think that there is a component historic work in america to in in a country where black life has never really had any value so that's one thing i understand the argument that has a macro argument that we have to change <hes> through unity and group operations if you ask me <hes> now it's a very important one because can you remember what you're gonna. Say you wanna flex and did not go back. Go for it okay. We have to talk class. Racing class like people have to understand when the rules chains and i don't think i'm hearing this enough and you know me. I'll i'll cool the fan but then i actually hit a switch because i understand what is happening to my people and we are not changing our orleans and learning the new rules so there's so many levels to this but you live with this whilst they got the the the classroom this historically there if you if you look at this historically historically there have been and were <hes> in different parts of the country areas where african americans were thriving economically where african americans were trying to buy homes wherever you saw the airline and inserted effort oh yeah stop that yeah and that those efforts didn't have to do with i mean what's good for one economic group of consumers should be good for everyone that had to do with forbid at french because they hate niggers and so we are in agreement right and what is so. It's and i'm gonna tell you win and so for for me while while we have more <hes> sort of economic opportunity opportunity coalition built like through money than we we ever have. There's still something in america that looks at the black experience in a different way. Oh yeah we have to address that so when we're talking about issues of race and class i think we can do them simultaneously but i don't think it serves us at all to prioritize one over the other no. I'm not even trying to prioritize it. I am trying to say let's give greater emphasis and here's the thing so you're right one. I got to tell my people stopped looking at the black. Existence students myopic view that you're graded how black you are. You're exemption from black. Conditions is based on just police encounters or brutality shootout. That's myopic. There are so many more conditions that keep us down and choke us out in in invisible fashion before we even get to a physical ram to deal with the police and i'm a high like that and that's because a class so what happened is in civil rights they are. Let's say you know rosa parks in fifty five fifty four. It was bubbling. It started all the way to sixty eight civil rights there and all sudden whatever this system is say this overt racism discrimination a nation. We can't get away with this anymore and voting rights act obviously a sixty five things like that and then what started to happen <hes> this go at the class now in coincidence with class is going to be black now in dr king started doing that. What happened him yet bank so listen. This isn't the same as a really that good at dr king's thing was doctor. Dr king looked and saw and l._b._j. And all of these people felt betrayed because dr king looked it and saw okay this is all happen and we have these civil rights but there's still an enormous amount of poor people in america and you won't be able to really zone without that what what they do without became kill right okay so let's talk about it because we didn't kill by the police we kill by the system whatever it is and then they're invisible ways choking you that you don't even feel until you can't breathe anymore so let's talk about it so i feel because looking at the economic disparity of nineteen seventy eight coincidence that soon the civil rights era and there's a line of demarcation nineteen seventy two present day the economic disparity between blacks and whites is exactly exactly the same so something's going on beneath the surface to keep y'all separate as rich as we are becoming. They're becoming rich as well at the same rate and uh-huh and what started to switches this social indicators which is based on class started to say education in nineteen nineteen seventy two x in terms of race so a white kid in terms of his educational situation was two times was greater in a position than a black kid in one thousand nine hundred eighty. I want to know where it is right now. President flipped to x. for class not not for race. A poor kid put in a different social. Condition has a great chance of succeeding by the numbers this go oh beyond the numbers. This is be real about this. Because what is happening is us who are in better condition. We made a little money. No this every wraparound. Oh no everybody i know from competent except the mayor salad days around lives outside a coptic it ain't because you ain't black and because you ain't down is because the condition so so what happened is from one thousand nine hundred seventy. I feel the system said we can't come out you in broad daylight but we could sneak you know they sneak listen to this. They i sneak education. Think about it just in class just to highlight. I gotta get greater emphasis when you broke. Mama moved outta compton. Why education she you can go to that school. She went to that school. She know what it is housing opportunity. You brought that up. Life expectancy is different. Just by way you live your health and quality of life criminal element like i live down the street from rappers and they out here wrapping in heart keeping it real down stuff and living in a different condition right no transparency there but i imagine entertainment incarceration rates homicide rates per capita but worse than all of this. You remember the whole no snitching insisted stitches. I used to discuss why policing facing unreported victimization rates are higher neighborhood in anywhere else right. You know what the problem with all this is if you add up that entire entire piece of gumbo served you we talked about race when we need to talk about race and class to me is defeating us so a lot of us who have ascended class half the highlight debt because what's happening to the people who are the lowest rung who filled the full weight and i admit i don't feel the full weight. Oh yeah police swept me and they still do. I had a shot gun to my head at fourteen by the police sitting on a street corner because they thought i robbed a bank two blocks away and i've been a victim of this and i understand that there is a different condition not just because of police encounters that's too myopic because of all these other things that i just read off and to get deep with it this whole image of black car that i don't even agree with it. I don't even laugh at i don't even i hate when people like i'm gonna tell you black carter kuhn sell. I'm like because what happens is it brings guilt. It brings shame to those who have advanced in their condition. Who really want to give back because i got to keep it down. I gotta to keep it real. I gotta keep it low level when we are defined by that same dam low wrong principle. Do you understand that they define black black people from barbados to virginia law to spread through the south based on the lowest rung master said this this is law. They made us the lowest rung. It's unreal how these predecessor listen to this van when they say what is black in this country it was basically you have no vote on what you are and if you have one drop the one and drop rule of black black now everyone took that on face value and we still been using that definition even though it was defunct federal law and is not a law anymore you know so why that's so damning to us because when they said that you know what those slave masters and owners were doing having having sex with black women raping them raping them exactly raping them and then that child by law was deemed black jack therefore i'm not responsible for that child because that's not me and that child is going to be fed into the system of slavery because he is not my i dependent bra. Our definition needs to be nuanced. His condition is but we know that experience that ain't happening. Well say this. This is what i would say to all of that and this is why this marry the two things all right so this. I'll give you my world view and everything that you just said the obviously economics drive america right <hes> east capitalist capitalist economics job america so a couple of things. A couple of things happened number one. When we talk about economics you can't separate to in my opinion. The the the first indicator of oppression <hes> which is the color of your skin because of the economic deficit that african americans started in the country ringo bronc free labor for x. amount of hundreds of years and then after after that <hes> you have a reconstruction jim crow all of those things which sought to keep african americans in economic stranglehold yes to <hes> sort of prolonged the effects of what became a legal slavery okay <music> so you're right away in an economic sense putting people behind april <hes> now meanwhile that same time western european peasants were coming to the united states and being given millions of acres of land millions of acres of land <hes> mhm to settle on and then start families that atlanta would be passed down giving them an economic leg up in america. The difference between them and us is that they were white so the economic the economic scales in america were tipped from the beginning. Yes as far as nine favor of african americans we go. We go go over the course of history and we look at things that have happened from from a big things like redlining like we talked about to micro things like what happened to black wall street or what happened at rosewood or any other places like that where african americans seemed to have their own economics or we look at the adverse effects economically of integration and how how <hes> the search for the american dream actually tricked a lot of us into believing that shopping at albertsons was better than shopping at the store and i saw all of those things. Let me tell you what the antidote to those things. Economic things are to me greater focus on race and i'll tell you because that's an instinct and i'll tell you like it because what i have to do in order to help advance when i said grades focus on race i mean not greater focus on racism. I mean greater focus on on moving in unison with people who are black and brown and the reason why that is is because that economic <hes> that condition has to become a coalition yeah so i have to look when you talk about what's going on in in <hes> in communities around the world talked to some kids and i looked at the kids and i talked to them and they told me where they wanted to live where they wanna live is obviously they want to go live in beverly hills. They wanna live in and cheviot hills. They wanna live right what they wanna live and places like that <hes> but i told him was that you guys could work together right now and make this community that you live in a lot better than it is right now but what that's going to take. Is you working together gather because if you think at any point that the status quo in america the white male power structure in america the american government it is ever going to invest into what it is that you're doing economically wherever you are. You're living in a fantasy world so if it's going if black people are going going to ascend in america if any marginalized and oppressed group is going to send in america they're gonna do it one way together and in order to do that together there have to be a series of understandings and cultural trust and cultural guidelines that we adhere to one of those cultural guidelines minds is to protect each other and to use whatever influence that we gather and garner to make sure that we're in the best places <hes> despite what what might be going on outside of our community so that means that if there is a black business in your community they get started. They don't have everything going right. They don't have everything you got to patronize them. You gotta grow with them. If there's a black bank that doesn't have some of the things you got to patronize them. You gotta go with them. If if you're an actor right that academy award i know it means a lot to you. Guys show up to the n. double a._c._p. Awards to the b._t. Awards to you have to love yours. Wars that to me is a racial imperative. That's an imperative that says listen. We've tried long enough appealing to the greater nature of american hoping that they would act on our behalf not going to do it so forget about having any sort of a disdain for them. Forget about the resentment that we would have for them right the resentment that you might have for the american structure whip that inside of yourself and turn it into love of for your community. Forget about hating anybody else forget about that. Forget about being mad turned that feeling that you feel into love for your community and love marcellus is work. Whenever you love something you have to work. If you love black the black community you have to work to advance that community. I need and you have to prioritize that community. I that's where the economic sort of a sense of black americans will come when black americans realize that there is something to to be gained by dealing with each other that is not forget. That's my problem with the jay z. Deal with the problem my deal is you have an organization dab believed leave to the n._f._l. That is out to main- maintain a specific status. Quo what happens sometimes in these situations is that organizations that want to maintain the status quo so what they'll do is they'll turn around and they'll pick one or two black people to let into a door and then i'll make us all feel like we're a part of something. I'm not saying that whole won't get yeah right. I believe in j. I think that he will get that right but what i'm saying is. The optics of it straight away is that they're allowed to say listen. We're going to treat this guy specific way but we're never gonna make this guy hole. We're never going to make this guy right but we're going to pick another one of you and we're going to have you you come in here and when you have come here you're going to bring a bunch of people and we're gonna make sure that we can race with this. Black man did. I'm to the point right now what i don't. I don't think that we as a culture should ever ever let somebody who took a risk for us. You fucked over ever again. There was a time where we couldn't do anything about that. When guys that put it on the line were killed when god is put on the line lost their careers my move i do lost screen. Yeah craig hodges losses lost his career. <hes> a bunch of people lost their careers to me. I thought and i had hoped that we were to appoint as a culture that we had reached the cultural zenith to where someone you didn't have to lose their career because they stood up for us and i get that people will go well. Why does he still want to play in the league. He's a football player. He's a guy who's been doing this entire life. It's part of his is identity. He doesn't want to have to give that up because he took a stand for us so whereas no activists is perfect. No identity is perfect. Nobody goes when the with the n._f._l. Settled i came. I was confused. I was like what the fuck is going on. I thought we were also. Let's burn the whole fucking c._b._a. That <hes> i was confused but in context all i'm saying is sometimes as black americans not sometimes fuck that all the time we we have to be willing to bianco all call for each other. I'm not i'm not the type of person. I don't believe a lot of people have called. Even you boy all the time. I don't believe in that type of talk. I don't believe you believe in in the n. Word here that i don't believe they whereas pardon me like light. I'll be honest with the expedition ever had and i'm like that's when i was when i was exactly because i know when i used to dance my grandfather look at me by looking at a little nigger go so he loved me so much. It's just hard to get it up. What i'm saying is laid whereas you're right. You're right the economics. Auditing aw are the things that we were economics. Our even our even want that title and accolade. I'm right but while numbers but what i'm saying is fact weighed that we're going to approach our economic system. African americans yeah is to use the cultural power that we have as being black people in correlate in coalition building building. Oh we can we can. We give me some of this. Y'all batteries. I hope you'll batteries is good because he bought the go what i'm saying is you're gonna have to care about me because i'm black. I'm i'm gonna have to care about this community because they're black. I'm gonna have to care about reaching back because they are black. I'm gonna have to care extra. I don't have to do more work because the people are black. Gotta care about them. I not care about them. I can't go get my now. We want something as a community but our community who here our community our cultural power is undermined by ourselves and i'm gonna tell you how to be together. We have to respect healthily that we are different now. When you hear uncle tom that means you any respecting. There were different. When you say you re respecting that we did when you call them self respecting respect that we different no other culture roles in this like perceptual unison. We try to act like that they do. We just not an culture to realized they fighting every day on a fight on some things but what i will as well. We'll says there's no if you look at other cultures right cultures that weren't splintered like we were right because remember we're coming from having invented culture on the fly so we're coming from a situation to where there's a thousand people in the field fifteen. The people in a house and the people in house live significantly better than they do for the people in the field of looking at the people in the house and going. What did they compromise in order to get what happened what what made them be chosen and rather than everyone trying to work together. You still looking at some people going well. It's more advantageous to be less troublesome to the status. Quo people will have a problem with jason whitlock or any other person like that that they will call an uncle. Tom is not because of what they're doing because they feel like that. Those people not because they have jobs on tv because they feel like those people attack black people to keep those yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah the whole going divide and khan conquered the divide and conquer mantra that you always hear may you you sound like them and then if you sound like them we don't be divided and conquered first of all no. We're not black experience. Black expression is infinite. It's infinite we. You don't want to know that we don't want to act like that's the reality. We don't even want to accept that but it's true there are black people voted for trump that are as black as any other black black person so i know a couple of what's so funny so let me just go around the trump home. Yeah i just wanna tell you i'm telling you at the water. Cooler your boy your boy you went out with last night. Aint talking politics as much was voting for trump now. He got fifty plus million votes. Everybody like. I don't know who they are yeah you do. He doesn't tell you who he was anyway. Black expression has no boundaries is limitless. All expression is to put us into these lanes. Stop it. It's impossible but it's funny because of our infinite expression russian but we don't accept it i ask you what do you think they could divide and conquer us. I ask you again what is infinity divided by to anybody. Go to math class eight damn number. It's still infinity so when y'all come to meet people about dividing and conquering oh my god so small and nearsighted this is something that we need to open up and not either or we keep going and in and listen to this when you make a sacrifice any situation you can think about sacrificed football the doodoo running down bussing away as you made a sacrifice. Wait expecting you to make a tackle but we got him a large odd. I remember the heads buster. Hey coach remember that they if you do do you not gonna play all right man suicide mission right right and it's amazing that sacrifice is not put put in perspective when you talk about capital. There was a net gain that we're trying to get and i look. I don't won't capital lose. His job is he wanted a top ninety six quarterbacks or sixty four in our league. If you go to yes but was he blackballed hell no and i can talk to that later so the thing is we keep putting these limits and tell me right now blackballed. Are you wanna go there. Okay we have to understand what blackball meetings back ball as i see it conspiracy you know the collusion this get behind a closed door. Let's all come to a uniform agreement all right. Let's let's really exchanges information about this guy versus a isolated opinion that is carried by all think about what i say y'all sometimes we all just agree. Even though we even sheridan information we just yeah yeah yeah carmelo's. Is he getting blackball right now. Some say yes some say no. I'm gonna stick to capitol when you are in a situation and you have a contract two thousand sixteen. He's kneeling and you opt out one. You opt out. Why do you about i've been in the contract situation. For why don't you opt out because they don't come in anyway. But why are you up now. Force their hand while you opt out well because one another situation where you leave you leave this situation without a guarantee of another interesting. I will forehead leave that alone. That's just one layer this so oh he apps out denver was trying to trade for him. He said yeah. Let's do this all the terms all these incentives and this two year seven million. I ain't good with that so san francisco you ruined because you opted out denver. You didn't won't because he liked to play for the incentives. Now we go into seattle. We got russell wilson up here. Respect cat but can you service this. Can you serve him get our starter. Right wouldn't built full re then baltimore awesome war baltimore is renamed the public's opinion like they have a fan base there trying to hear out his land. That's why you can go to miami asa cuban about colin kaepernick and they like that's why miami they work so you go to seattle situation. I'm sorry you go to the baltimore. Situation ray rayle louis standing up there trying to go behind closed doors with steve's but scotty the owner any man. I don't know i know good. I know bad. I don't know the situation. I'm trying to look out for the brother. Let's do it. Let's do you necessarily fires off. A tweet. Ray lewis is to kuno owner hugging them slave master owner on who you're supposed to be django stuff four four. Did you contributed to now. It's funny as his own mentor. Dr harry edwards say two things that just jumped off the page taste to me one he said to the n._f._l. Do not make this man and martyr he told roger goodell do not make this mortar find a way to give him an opportunity because if you don't and if he dies on this cross of nearly all yago yago religious fighters guy and cinnamon the martyrdom it happened to two things the the second thing was he said to capture nick read he said about him to beat an inspiration of a movement doesn't mean you have to beata leader. Nasa fired a shot him to adviser. My point is is if you get if you leave t._m._z. usually leave and then you got three other entities showing real interest and you like black black black now you jobless not come to your crib tequila men. They blackballing me and industry. What just happened. Breath see. I'm so invested in this and i'll tell you from day one when capper kneeled. I said to kill them washington charlotte to my boy as we were hosted in our radio show about this. I asked everybody out there right now. If antonio brown wanted to be the leader of a movement about systemic compression ratio injustice and discrimination and police brutality. Would you not sit there say i didn't hate from hello. I let me watch catherine because i knew company everybody before but i don't know well enough to hate and i'm sitting there watching and i'm like no no no no no slander to antonio brown but we all go sit there saying okay watching you know don't forget who can't laws before it is for so i'm respecting his newfound mindset and everything happens in live with everyone having to me having everybody. I hope if not you ain't him all right so i'm not disqualifying them but i'm watching and then what happened was in that situation situation. It started immediately. Go south immediately but we are all blinded by the calls so we stop looking at the character well the first thing he did wrong. I'll tell you i only say it wrong because i gotta be binary so we ain't got on spend twenty hours on his first thing he did was a misstep he he sat down and then they told him. Can you kneel army veterans and everyone can you kneel instead of sit down all right so we go there. I got this thing listed because i i just want to educate. It ain't about how good i look and how real my eagle. I just want people to understand that he wanted to kneel before he was a backup to. I hate that narrative. Stop kapernick. Kapernick will still a starter he had like three or four surgeries lost a ton of weight and everybody's like oh so soon as career is over he wants to know he was talking about this even when he was the man but he was going through the rehab he couldn't fight blaine gabbert off so he missed a lot of time off season so he kneels then he knew he he sits dentures dylan requested the trade talked about then you nil in. What's the second verse you know what happens to second verse. What was the second. I malcolm x. Shirt with who owned it fidel castro now the media wait a minute castro has been accused of killing seventy three thousand people because of their political beliefs. You sure that's who you wanna a day one of your movement. You wanna go someone who was so polarizing. He did church visit. He had a scheduled church visit. All the you know in our who don't would you say by l._a. Is known to flake but don't flake right especially. If you're the leader of a movement self-appointed. He ain't even show up at a church.

Not people notice a meeting of all the police chiefs because this is your calls right in the area at the given a million dollars cabinet show up after saying. Let's let's go okay. Look interesting. <hes> the pig socks. I chip in on that but that's to some trip over you. Gotta remember an n._f._l. World and circles in security all of those guys are like retired f._b._i. Retire police like to do make sure that no-one robs ops us when we sleep in a hotel rooms is a police officer or former police officer off duty and you go there on them. Now you stood a leader of a movement that we're trying to fully interpret corporate digests and really activate but this is what you're doing then he goes out there and talks about he doesn't want to vote. <hes> ooh people fought for our right to vote or not vote so i'm not tripping on that but guess what he did. He said to hillary clinton and donald trump. Were pretty much the same house. Is that a live now. He's not leading and speaking because he keeps stepping in it. See remember. I'm from black expression that my grandma you question god baby so i question any man so he ain't leading. Hey speaking up south. The deal said he angle neil anymore. They retracted that ah whatever miss misreporting whatever then started to go sideways y'all would think that's our waste jason now for me. I was like it takes time to learn activism. It's this is a new world free. I'm gonna shoot my brother down but guess what happened in sellouts and coons and stuff started to come and like i said with the ray lewis and everything then it was malcolm. Jenkins eric re literally fought arkham jenkins on a football field because malcolm jenkins became the leader of the players coalition eighty nine million dollars cap. Nick has given one jed york is given in two. I don't know the rest of their records are not public but i don't think it was eighty nine million right so somebody's getting eighty nine million because your activation capita come aboard cabernet only if you give me leadership position as as a different division a coalition with <hes> intro division. That's is interesting and then your boys josh norman and others alike. Josh norman told aired read. I'm send you a plane ticket. This brother to brother saw saw you come out here and i hope your ass for being this damn contentious which wanna do this we build an offer y'all and they agree taking it because he won't credit cabinet won't credit i yeah we'll have to the people who are voices powerless now when we could get the and going to aggregate going the crazy thing is when i look at it and all those entities he's not got more here but i ain't gonna because then it goes into the nike deal and it goes into the settlement to settlement in labor dispute. Oh respect back act paper labor dispute. I'm glad you to that whole to wasn't a physical me. I love you too much. It's not it's a fact back pain. Okay okay so what you should ask you. Ooh is that what is that the n._f._l. Which hadn't done anything which thirty two owners. Let's start. Let's start there so thirty two owners or x amount the owners all have the same opinion about colin cabinet but they don't have the same opinion about gosh who can he eliminated for whoever but these guys have the same opinion about colin kaepernick but they don't they can't seem to agree about a guy who took his san for social justice but they can't seem to agree about guys who do you is these guys who were scrawny beat the hell out of women murderers manslaughter who who manslaughter all they carry about those guys yeah so those owners can't get to a twenty eight thirty two consensus owner thing about those guys but they can all agree about a black man who stands up for social injustice. That's very telling number number two secondly if in fact those owners didn't think that they had colluded. They have an infinite amount of money. Why would they ever settle that. Oh that's easy. Y got all right so what's the first one settlement and the first one. Was i wanna talk to you about. I know i know oh. There's no doubt they settled because they don't want to be deposed and they don't want those depositions to come out. They don't want the discovery of things that they might have said in emails and things they don't what they really don't want what the n._f._l. Doesn't want anything is for people to know oh colin kaepernick or no colin kaepernick who they actually are so i know exactly the reason why they settled they settled it because of the financial security that column i have had with with the nike situation allowed him to retain gear agos and guys like that or longer amount of time right and retaining those guys and giving him the financial push. I said he needed to fight the n._f._l. They don't wanna be deposed. They don't want to have their emails going through. They don't want people to know some of the things that they've said they don't want to have to lie under oath about some of the other the stuff that all true and for different reasons but for whatever reason no no no that counts now no no no because that paints how you viewed it for whatever reason if if it was if it was because they had said other races shit anytime i'm serious they do they. They didn't want to be the most and and secondly as we're talking about things that colin kaepernick mistakes they might of made get if colin kaepernick or any activists or anyone i mean malcolm max was silenced by <hes> by muhammad for speaking ill at a very sensitive time about assassination of j._f._k. So no man is perfect in and we're even going there on it. So what what what i would say this. Well we leave out about colin. Kaepernick is that he started know your rights camp where he loves it all around the country like talking to children about their rights and from all over the place to talk about that he did start a one a a one million dollar pledge <hes> he did <hes> establish <hes> initiatives all over the country to to deal with parolees cutdown recidivism. He did get a plane to go in eight people in somalia in their time of need. He has been doing work yeah ever since he was given the platform and jay z has done that work and more any other. Let me let me do this. He definitely done but when moore jay z but we're not adding them up. No no it all count no no. I'm not i'm not i'm not jay z and many more have done as much as he has fantastic but what i'm saying is while we're talking about things that colin kaepernick has done done wrong or things that people might have said the colin kaepernick has done to hurt himself what he tried to do since what he has tried to do since he's been given this platform platform is used as platform to affect the lives of people who cares about and people who invested in the community he has done that ryan and he has done that and he's been more than a mouthpiece for. He's been someone who's actually done action for money. Where's my life and what i would say about what the n._f._l. And what rock nation have is if the n._f._l. Wants to give money to to causes that have to do with social justice that are going to be suggested to them by the players in the league. They don't need jay z for that and they can go to the players in the league as them yo. What do you need to give it to the reason why you involve hoven that. Which is you guys if we're being ru who is a music and entertainment partnership reason why you involve hoping that is because he's one of the two guys in america that can make the culture turn the page on colin kaepernick past yeah and the reason why they want to get past it to me is because they are wrong. There's something that is sticking in the craw about the way they treated this particular black man black man that stood up for other black people what i don't like despite the work that jay z might get done with the n._f._l. What i don't like is any any time the white american power structure the status quo can use a black man to erase another one and that has been something thing. That's been happening here since the country was founded on the backs of our ancestors and it's something that we have took fuck and stop letting them do okay. I want you stay objective as much as you can as much as i can because if you are a judge in a courtroom right now <hes> you can't come in with bias. You're not supposed to your human being i get it but to judge what bias aw thought this happened before as you say historically this happens this justice case by its merits and only just can't get away from america's his not. They just want to start micro before we go macro. Can we do that. We basically you went to school with me all right. Let's go here backpay. You started off all of this. I heard i love this ammo type and chevy tucson lunar backpay think about it you in your eyes. They're colluding. They're blackballing him back. Pay just stick with the lens of back pay. I'm suing for back pay. Do you have a job yet no so i ask you. Why are you so for back. Pay right now if you haven't even gotten to full of crewmen of what your back pay is if i'm out of the league for now is three or four years years going on three years to four years. I'm waiting a duration to get the maximum of that which is accrued. Who sued i'm for back pay when they are. They knows in attempt to sue for back. Pain cats d'alene elite that back pay is still growing but he already sued for. They're gonna sewer again. Okay respect if something if it does. I don't know double jeopardy counseling this situation. Who doesn't i mean. I can't say for sunrise careful here but i but i have a strong feeling that these that the suit will be brought down okay but i'm just pushing back to say any interest in it the homicide man i'm suing. I'm suing in target man. They let me off the back pay a._o._l. Coluna something you like all right. Why are you sir right now. No because you still ain't got a gig so won't you gave first and then you can add up. Exactly backpay really means because you have an ending dentsu you get the most they control when you get hired though so. How can you do that because we are hiring. If you never get on the team then you can never sue no. No no you wait to the statue stipulate issues and limitations statute of limitation by your by your rationale if he wait so he's back into the lead to launch the lawsuit. There's no guarantee that he'll ever be back in the league so robby sitting on the lawsuit improper. I'm not thinking for cap. I just thought that was peculiar. I thought that was interesting when i still got time to add this up when you when you got when you know sooner day one i know he was back pay day one day one. He didn't sue day they won because there wouldn't have been enough evidence of collusion because it wouldn't have drunk all in long enough yeah yeah after a couple of years and peterman throws nine interceptions in fifteen minutes and and you start to look at you look at things and go. There's something going on here. What's you have sort of an evidentiary thing there. After a while i get it you go. This looks bad letting i respect his position and doing it but i thought that was a little interested me personally if i had to go because you ain't got enough dough to ever fight the n._f._l. So let's not act like he was waiting to get his big bank up to their big bank so you pick a point where you're like enough evidence and i wanted to sue for back. Pay back. Pay is still growing laid out alone. Now we talk about why did the n._f._l. Settled can we still like talk to people under educate them to understand that when you settle it doesn't it's not an admission of guilt sherzad. There's no so when everyone n._f._l. Doesn't want to get a post you damn right. It could have been about the turf. It could be about a lot of situations. It can be about player safety safety n._f._l. Settled on player safety they settled on the medical issue then head trauma because as you i've been in this position before i got sued by gartner do who in buffalo because he planted tropical flowers in buffalo in the winter sumi four a g assuming super for fifteen hundred. I said my lawyers gonna re. Retain this for five g. So guess what tastes that'll take a thousand get out face and four thousand dollars. You can have it ah but my point was. This people always think that sisters settled got high. It's amazing we look at things by if if you ask somebody why and if they hide or protect they like the answer matter of fact but if you asked about who got something to hide and protect why guilty not the n._f._l. Got fifteen billion dollars last year. You'd think they want to open up a can of worms and discovery no matter what the issue is in terms of you know no one their books and their agendas to bad ugly post. The timing of the settlement pose nike deal makes me think that the n._f._l. Understood that there will be a longer process to drown colin kaepernick financially <hes> than they thought that it would be so and become thought right because because of that and the fact that they didn't want to be deposed and all these they they decided it would be better off to settle. Do i know for a fact that there was some kind of smoking gun to collusion allusion. No no that's nearly impossible probably wasn't what i do know. Is that at some point. These guys decided. It's better if they don't. I know what it is that we're doing and maybe not on this issue or maybe maybe on a maybe on a litany of issues so they got other lawsuits going on at at the same time and it's good that we're talking about this as in depth as we are. Thank you and this is. This is my thing what i'm asking what i'm gonna ask you right now. All right is very simple because you're you're a heady brother. You're good brother days. I've never heard anyone say a bad word about you. You ain't been taking the last week or to your brother. Do you believe leave that what colin kaepernick dig looking at his world and trying to affected to minimize systemic oppression police brutality. Don't you think he did the right thing. Do you think he did the writing and everything he's done every step of the way i knew no. I'm just saying the totality about. I'm not gonna go micro tally audi. They know i'll tell you know and i'll tell you why so you don't think colin kaepernick get the right to know <hes> here's a here's why when you're at the lowest rung designated by society when you had no choice when you're black and poor and in the ghetto data that's what this world has made the epicenter of hell like anywhere in this world you go there black poor ghetto especially in america who they they they. You're under full attack you get out. You're never going to escape the race conversation but if you can change condition you can change things. Why did i if i had to vote. Kapernick did right or wrong vote wrong because i'm into resources. I'm into materializing. I meant to monetize it. He's done tremendous two million that i know of and probably millions more but then i lost j._j. Watt different calls differ reason just instead of being adversarial and this is a different call so it's tough to be ever cereal with hurricane relief but in alliance guess what he raised forty one point six million record two million the record forty one point six but no no no no don't do me like that but <hes> they'll do me like ours is so jay. This is a black. I'm not going like a white. I'm just going i. If we go get some measurable out of this you can't put the to do. I love you to look. I'm thinking like that's interesting. I'm not even oh compared j._j. Watt and all that i just like when he had everyone either loved him for the cause or love to hate him because they was against the calls you got him. You floyd mayweather money way whether that's why he's the highest paid athlete because he got he's loving them eleven to hate him polarizing cabinet had that and he's winning every award he's on everything and then he gets silent. My little joke is like bad boys. Moving silence and bad leaders michael eric dyson said you need to people in any protests. Somebody else is agitated. Somebody inside activating activating. We got him outside agitate agitate. We should be pumped but we not because we choose him because capper nick and his camp. It's made us choose when the calls is getting awesome choice. Here's my thing why those okay those guys the guy outside and the guy <hes> inside they need to be on code they'd be they need to be on code. That's all i would say. I would say i would say i would say that if you're gonna if you're gonna if like the guy inside the guy outside and the guy got inside aren't on code <hes> then one can be played against the other one yeah yeah and so for me. I get what you're saying cat went silent but he never stopped doing well now. You're my point. I have a foundation people people coming at me so siwei. I just laugh 'cause they. Tell you that reason long story short. This guy got off a plane that he was a hostage. Stockholm syndrome going on airline flight attendants intimate it mentally ill with the guys with the guns and he walks off the gun. You walk off the plane and it like interviewing. Were you scared. Crazy shook you. You know people walk into here with guns and stuff. Oh my god you know what he say. I've been scared if you know what he meant what he said was. I went through the holocaust nelson i use the mosquitoes do need to so when i use a bomb scare then i could really clearly see what your intentions and what you're really here for for capri nakedness situation y vote wrong is because i have a foundation i won man of the year walter payton fail three times for my squats. It's three times and you know what i didn't do. I kept working and i still do works but i'm not going to stand up with that responsibility and connect with the voice system powerless and dingo silent on them even if i'm still working because that's a responsibility that comes from when you take that knee now. It's time to take a stand. Everybody has to join your name and that's why i kept silent but i was leaking 'cause like that's a huge responsibility. You know me so many go to camps. They have their foundations. They give millions of dollars. Let's not act like cabernet. They wanna be more than that he did but when you are supposed to be more than that you have to be all of that and he didn't didn't he let he let that go short. I don't like to compare them against j._j. Watt jay z. me anybody but if i say damn i've been able to new x and i've been doing that in silence relative to what he did and you only did x. plus. I think that's my the issue. I know it's so unfair to compare what a lily white boy does. After a hurricane to a black man that's trying to get america jay z to blattman. I managed to get america to look at themselves in the mirror and address the way they're treating activation and they have historically strip that their humanity and the fact the the the the times that happened in listen this why i will say more cells disagree about this. We agree on the hot. Dogs agree on many other things i actually i don't even know if the bears get john back there. We agree on a great many other while we don't want to leave this conversation station in disagreement and not in <hes> like discord or in. We're not gonna like you know what i'm saying like. That's how they wrote. Oh i mean look. I know i know other people out there. Will i never that way. I don't shoot at you like that. I just like look my biggest problem. <hes> <hes> cap is that he ain't if he as sticking up for himself and silencing all this watch it i keep doing your works but do those works in a manner that didn't need read all of these people attaching their hearts and minds to you and then it feels like what's next and no one has that answer. You know what you in turbulence. Let's on a plane. What calms you this. Is your captain speaking. Everything's okay up here. What if you don't hear that from your captain. You know what you're thinking. Ooh mama that listen well best point at this point is as soon as the plane wobbles a little bit on you hit on a little mike and tell me because because they'll even tell you sometimes before hey just let you guys know we gotta turn off this but but if he would just start shaking and i don't hear that weird thing and you see the flight attendant running for the c. You think maybe it's been fun. Hey the white the person that we have left clap his brother go. I'm out of here. We did this for a while by so. Tell them about everything that you got coming up brian everything that you've got going on. Oh man <hes> almost speak for yourself every day noon pacific to one thirty with jason whitlock <hes> you boys in the community community <hes> got a few events coming up marcellus wiley dot com and before we before we move on because i want to say this say conform to move on on. They're going to be people that are going to divide this up right. They should be people that are gonna be available sizes. I don't want you to just say what you just said before. Oh you move on. I want you to tell people because around here in in los angeles is evidence obvious and we all know it. I disagree with you be emily on the cabinet situation but i want to tell people how much you do for the community in los angeles before we move off of of this because if you are here you know what's going on in these different places you know what the brothers putting it in his community and even if you came into this thinking about it one way you know that this guy is walking and talking and i want you. I i never do this. I want you to tell people here some of the stuff that that that that you do so they know that even though we're disagreeing even though they might disagree right that people's lives are being made better <hes> because you may not have motherfucker money. They still broke up. Nobody damn foundation. <hes> let me say this man. I had a moment of full circle moment. I've had to one on a football field. I grew up john elway. Fan man and mama was like you ain't buying no damn foot locker jersey for that sending nine ninety nine number seven elway. My first game in the n._f._l. Was against the denver broncos mile high stadium. I'm at the fifty arline not warming up because i'm a backup and bruce smith is out there getting it and i turn turnaround and i look right behind me three feet maybe that john elway not footlockers urging the man full circle in that way in the community off-the-field a full circle man <hes> grandma show of competent last year which really hit home because that that that parade started across across the street from the competent cemetery. I got a lot of family buried in there and i mean it brought me to tears to look and say damn they the their little teddy bear. That's what they call. Me is right here front of them trying to lift through them and this exists is to help others. I'm all about the fork in the road dude in and gal. I'm all about because i was that close man. I could have got sniped out. The conditions ate me alive. I could have not been aspirational as i was. Whatever it is that is filling the the full weight of this are could lost and it's been a win so far in in some mation and i want everybody to sit there and had that same same empowerment that don't look at circumstances. Don't look at what everyone says. Your expectations are should be that really just tap into who themselves into their s.'s and makes the best of their life. It makes their their dream a reality so what am i doing. I'm doing it everywhere. <hes> <hes> whether i'm working with a in a positive coaching alliance ravin all these athletes and making them greater than the game if i'm doing my project transition my foundation if i'm doing that with l. a. eighty four i'm doing that with compton and always out there ways your brown and others <hes> venus serena masterpiece all of us. I'm not into this whole i gotta move as silence and no receipts but if i ever stand up and say look at me is going to be something to look and i'm never going sit back down and doubts where i am with all this situation respect the stop nai-ping each other and less is to build and if the spirit of nessa nessa eric read to me is not in building. It's in sniping. I don't buy that bill. I love you. I love you less than one thing for me she she might be deep into game. She got the rules. Miss the hell out of you. That's colin.

Because you're absolutely exhausted. So switch and save with GYCO. It's almost better than sports. This this day in history class is a production of iheartradio. Welcome back I'm your host eaves and you're tuned into this day in history class a show that takes history and squeezes it into bite size stories. Today is January sixteenth. Twenty twenty you. The day was January sixteenth thirteen sixty to a massive southwesterly early Atlantic gale known as Saint Marcellus flood or the growth among Daca hit the British isles the Netherlands northern Germany and Denmark work it resulted in at least twenty six thousand deaths. The event is also known as the second Saint Marcellus flood since a similar disaster. Astor happened on January sixteenth in twelve nineteen Saint Marcellus is flood took place during. What some Matala Gist? Now call the little ice age. This period wasn't an actual ice age. The term coined by geologist F e Matt refers to a climate interval after the medieval warm period did when mean annual temperatures declined and the weather was unstable though climatologists and historians disagree on the exact span of the period and by many definitions. The so called Little Ice Age lasted from the fourteenth century. To the mid nineteenth century around the twelfth century a series as of large storm surges started occurring in the North Sea. By this time though Europeans were already familiar with storm surges caused by the Gills of extra tropical cyclones. An extra tropical cyclone is one that forms in the middle or high latitudes. These cyclones are driven by temperature. Sir Contrast in the atmosphere where two air masses meet and create a front though tropical cyclones create higher storm surges and get a lot of attention an extra tropical cyclone cover larger geographical areas. These storms led to the loss valuable land enforced communities to relocate. Europeans could not predict when the next flood would happen but they did build coastal defenses to protect against big storms and reclaimed land from the sea using innovative techniques. The low countries including the Netherlands western Germany Denmark Belgium northern France were particularly vulnerable able to storm surges and destruction. The first Saint Marcellus Floyd occurred in twelve nineteen drowned an estimated. Thirty six thousand people mostly mostly in West friesland and Groningen which are now locations in the Netherlands in twelve eighty seven. St Lucia flood killed more than fifty thousand people in the Netherlands in northern Germany. This storm over the North Sea destroyed sand dunes and natural clay barriers that separated a lake in the north west of the Netherlands. Orlands from the sea that turned the lake into a bay that became known as the designer say or southern fee villages were wiped out in Harlington. A town that was landlocked became a seaport. England was also affected by the storm. Surge the second Saint Marcellus flood was also devastating it. It hit large parts of North Western Europe. On January sixteenth thirteen sixty to a southwesterly Atlantic gale swept across the British isles. The Netherlands orlands northern Germany and Denmark high tides combined with the storm to flood large parts of the low countries. Wrong whole report. On the island of Strand in the Duchy of slippy reportedly completely stuck into the C- The city attained a sort of mythical status with debate later rising being over whether it ever even existed the port of Ravens is in England was largely wiped out the storm further open designers aid to the sea eighty and around sixty parishes in Denmark were reportedly destroyed. The storm changed the shape of the Danish German and Dutch coastlines. The death toll of the flood has been estimated at at least twenty five thousand people up to one hundred thousand though. The exact number is disputed. January sixteenth is the Feast Day of Saint Marcellus hence. The name Saint Marcellus flood. The storm also became known as growed up on Daca which means great drowning of men and low Saxon and the centuries after the storm dykes were be built and land was reclaimed from the sea but massive storm surges continued.

Are the Lakers the best in the West?, Paul George's critics, Russell Wilson, Mike McCarthy, Rodgers + Love

"Speak for yourself presented by Hyundai Marcellus Wiley here looking plane but not him Friday the Friday fit. Biggest I'm short I'll. Never. Agassi. Short song his desk Ben Still think that needs to be on right now that's my man Emmanuel Arthur looking crispy is usually let's get started with the Lakers. Bounced back in the bubble would what Anthony Davis called a must win game abroad. James Only score ten points lowest total ever in a playoff win but there was a lot of ad who dropped thirty one points on the Blazers to tie up this series after the game Lebron reflected on L. A.'s puff path this season this. Original. Comparison anybody in the League. It's not what everybody else does now is. The time everyone. I just know what type of season we've had this year. It's been three or four seasons at one. I know we're capable of I know how we're built. And I don't compare anyone. US to us. Director everyone of our players because not about everybody else's don't spout. The Lakers prove they're the best in West. They did the Lakers proved it because I told you. I submitted a widely as you did ask submitted a wildly. I said I said hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work hard that window right? I. Love You hard. Work Beats Talent when talent doesn't work hard but Marcellus when talent does work hard I can't be beat the Lakers yesterday showed us when talent finally does work hard. They cannot be stopped. I've submitted the fact that the blazers they do have the better three through seven on the depth chart. Then you look at Dame when you look at cj when you Look at Mellow, when you look at Gary Trump when you look at the Blazers, have the better three to seven but the Lakers one plus to outweigh the blazer three through seven because they just dominated at will now now not so ignorant as to say, they're ago Lakers didn't play better than they'll probably play yesterday blazers didn't play worse than they'll probably play yesterday. All wasn't a thirty point those two teams that are thirty points separated by each other talent. Wyoming. Somewhere in the middle but what we do know is it ad when he wants to ball, he can't be stopped. Voter that can shoot the three they can bring the ball up the court he can't be stopped. So when you have two guys who seemingly can't be stopped, they are the best in the West Breath Ron only had ten tweets and then cat still one by thirty thirty Oh what I look at it as the Lakers or best team when they want to be. Like this, you know when you? When you race somebody, I'll say it like this, my murky season, my second year in a league. I'm one on one against the Shawn McCoy instagram he that's why I'm here right now. Exactly why here? That's exactly why I'm sitting. Court I can't guard the do can cut on a dime like it's twitter handles. But when he was show up to practice and he didn't really feel like going you best believe I had number or you did that. But the second he was like, wait a second. I'm actually significantly better than this guy it was a rat nest, the La Lakers when They show up sleepwalking believe somebody can catch him slipping but the day a shows up to the court and realizes wait a second I'm one of the top five basketball players in the world I can't be beat. That's what the Lakers did yesterday. Wow strong argument but it came up short and argument winning argument like that outfit Lewis Short. Here we go. No they're not the best team in the West. It's amazing that your argument sounds like someone who's given it to him because the default. The number one seed, and they actually won a game which they're so post to win, they're playing not only an eight seed play it eight see what a star who was like going to the bubble chance and then game chance they had to win damn near every game to get into the position of being eight. See I mean grabbing reach for the rope please number eighteen let. US hold on and they do and now on the Lakers are the best team in the West and they don't even have a lead in this series they are tied. They climbed out of a hole with the play in team to get to even, and you're going to sit here and say now this is the best team in West but that's what millennials do. Oh, is that The the famous philosopher. Uncle Jimmy once told me. I'm about to discredit comes out your mouth. You know old school like us. We don't expect too much. Is this y'all except to little? Deep right there s a bar because if you look at the Lakers all season long you would expected them to be up to or at least have to dominant performances even in a loss we didn't see that from the Lakers. Well, we're seeing from the Lakers is a team like you said Jacqueline Hi. Anthony Davis to go out there and say Yeah I looked better in game two play with more energy more heart. You also played the center position which helped him out tremendously. Davis wasn't wasn't the biggest issue and game what the biggest issue in game one is. They didn't get the surrounding support that they got game to to the point where their leader said Oh, I could take this one off your boys don't handle that. But as you know every single coach when you come back in that locker room and he draws up on the Whiteboard, he's like Hey y'all we won a game but that wasn't a winning formula the winning four less. Something else something we could repeat something we could duplicate right now I'm not seeing what you're a smart man. So I'm going to ask you to use your intelligence and answer this hypothetical question. Okay. If you were to remove the seating, you're intelligent enough to do this if you were to remove the seating, where would you put the Blazers 'cause you know far as the eight teams that are left in the West? Oh, not an eight hour if you take your time do. You know what? I would have to change the seating for both because if you're going by the heat of the bubble team of the Blazers, they be the number one and number two but what the Lakers will be I don't care. For like seven eight dollars perfectly fine. What that means if you if you were to make the blazers I don't know what you just said a one or two. Or whatever they will Lakers just beat hypothetical one or two seen by thirty points in a game that the best player in the world only had ten. Sir You actually just defeated yourself. You just make the blazers weren't. They truly are not an eight seed because your mouth you said a one or two, but I'll say a one two or three, the Lakers just dubbed that one two or three seed by. How, they are playing by thirty points. So if the question is that the Lakers just proved that they're the best team in the West and Marcellus Wiley just told you all ladies and gentlemen that the Blazers are one of the top three teams in the West. Lake is just beat that team by thirty point I just learned who I'll really going to be working with for a long time and intelligent human being. Argument and ambassador a fantasy land you. You hate reality you look in the mirror you'll be like, Damn your what are you doing here? I want something else? That's not right in front of me I am Dylan. The reality the reality is they are. You talk about the law of averages. These are not two teams that a separated by thirty points. So they're going to progress to the main and when they regressed to me the same guy who kept saying. PORZINGIS got kicked out if you didn't talk. Will Be Owens what are you cry? And cry. Damian. Lillard was out of the game from the third quarter as well. Let's sit down. There was still down about twenty by thirty. I don't hear the same cries from my co host. We got to bring in our guy slick rick the or MBA analysts right here. Slick Rick Lakers proved they're the best in the west side. I'm if I'm of stake in, they didn't play the clippers today. The places. We had this same conversation. First of all, your hypothetical guys, the analogies wiliest or really good your hypotheticals not so much because if we're seating based on the bubble because he's the Phoenix Suns of the number one seed and they're not even playing so Y- let's put that aside get. Point. Slick. Thank you coming into the bubble. Our question was still. Are the Lakers better than the clippers we've haven't seen the clippers at full strength. We still haven't seen them at full straighten they were too and into during the regular season. So until I see them go head to head I can't make any determination on whether the Lakers actually are the best team. In the Western Conference lure they the best team in the western conference during the regular season. Yes, they were. But as Marcellus has pointed out many a time and as we understand this is part of the Leonard Formula We haven't seen the best of the clippers maybe we oh no, we can't be. Killing them to raise some doubt sleigh with. You. Joe. Things this the Lakers Lakers were embarrassed in game one. Yes. They came back and they out they out worked the. Trailblazers if they do that every game yes they will win the series. Does that mean? They're the best team in the western conference I can't that leap? especially. At this point with vertical, I can't Ha. I'm glad you lightened up my mood because you really ran me hot just there. If you were to grab a Marian Webster's dictionary and look up the word hypothetical or fantasy land, you would see a picture of Marcellus than any other clippers fan. Right next to win because. What you just said, what Marcellus has been saying is a hypothetical fantasy land all season long we have heard the clippers haven't reached their full strength Oh season-long her the clippers are just a playoff team. Wait till they turn it up now oh publ- long her. The clippers habit and yet messed hypothetically speaking. To come a point when the clippers play does the post a play? y'All literally you and Marcellus, they'll live in a hypothetical. So how'd dare your call me out when I paint a small fragment of the reality that you all listed? Yeah because I have seen, the clippers play the Lakers in the first game of the season I saw them play them in the second game of the season three, hundred hundred on nate is the Lakers ain't even not at full strength dominated them. I've seen I saw them in the first quarter against the Dallas Mavericks. Go Oh, damn we want to when we go harden we go complete this team can't compete with us. Now do they have a tendency to downshift as soon as they feel like they've made their point? Yes, and that is troubling. But in terms of what they're capable low I have no doubt that the clippers are capable of beating. Because his Marcellus this is what you you. Is Much doing all they're looking at the individual parts that the clippers have. We'll have maybe the best man of all time in lieu will they have Paul George back in two thousand fourteen this dude was going head-to-head Lebron they have Kawai if he wants another MVP maybe he's one of the greatest and they're taking all of the parts and assuming that they will make a great hole although we haven't seen the greatest Ho yet y'all. That's what's going to happen. All I wanNA say is you continue to use the past, which is the regular season before a bubble in favor of your argument, but do dismiss it all the time when we're talking about the Lakers and their struggles who at the Lakers been post-bubble more poorly who had the Lakers been out today have success in the bubbles screen can't talk. I want to do this to you with the Lakers must be partying and popping bottles in the scripps the bubble in Orlando because they will not respond well after a win Oh and three and I want WanNa see two points per game average combined between Lebron James and Anthony Davis fewer than what Davis had last night even in game one. So the pointed this is there are two different seasons occurring two different teams when we're looking at the Lakers pre bubble Lakers a best in the West I gave you that number one seed coming into the bubble somehow some way and it's Linda Quia Lebron James always talk about. Three or four seasons for so far this year all the circumstances. Sushi same way they do on the West Hollywood all of that has changed his mind and the way his team approaches the bubble. This is not the same team. That's why they're not the best for the first problem ourselves. I have is whistling and slicks argument is dating back to when you had hair back when the clippers beat the Lakers back in two thousand and who care slit don't tell me about that now more. Apart. I told you who uses it for you or never. You took me back to twenty nineteen before the national pandemic before the season was shut down and then there was a four-month layoff before the restart that does not have an implication on what we're seeing right now but I gotta deal with Marcellus. Marcellus here because Marcellus showed us a full screen after the Lakers locked up the one seed which you sell this preach that meaningless games are meaningless and you just show me a meaningless graphic because you are the, you have a flag planted like the one that is on the mood you have a plan Blanton saying that meaningless Games are meaningless. The Lakers had locked up the wants the during this graphic and these meaningless the. That are using the light of the audience. Okay. Look I understand that you're making a lazy argument. So now you're trying to revive its okay big dog I. Love You. I love working with tremendous energy suspect intelligence. Rico? Teachers always tell me it's not just getting a in this class. It's keeping an a in this last and the Lakers finally got an a bubble. But now the conversation is, can they keep an a in the bubble because we have not seen that just yet but my momma raised me better than this. I've been yelling a lot I've been acting like I don't have respect for Labor down the down Marcel I gotta give y'All y'all flower voice Slick Rick Let's all ceremony for the Lakers because it's been three thousand and sixteen days since the Lakers won a playoff game y'all that is eight years three months. Days. Kosovo you don't talk. Show in a block, we don't do that but. Eighty was in college Lebron hadn't even one NBA title before the Lakers had won their last playoff games so much respect to them slick rick, you want to say anything to ceremony. Or one out for that street for the Lakers by the way. If you're not going to count the Clippers win wins pre bubble, then we can't count the Lakers having the best record in the western conference pre bubble. We can only go based on what we've seen in the. Right, the fair out there that's never say. What I'm saying Is One win against the Blazers. The team that they lost to in game one approved they are the best team West. It's simple slick using your logic everyone. We will use slicks logic. We are only going to address what we've seen most recently in the bubble and right before you came on more Selah. Say You. Marcellus. Listen Right. These blazers were one of the top three teams in the West if you beat one of the top three teams and we already assume how did this who are a top team? Therefore makes the top team Marcellus. His favorite sport is track and field. If I'd beat the fastest person in the world that now makes me the fastest person in the World Marcellus others favorite sports are boxing. If you beat an undisputed heavyweight champion, you are now the heavy weight champion we already know the Lakers are top tier they showed us again that they have beaten one of the hottest top two years making them the top tier I rest my case. So sell us right a lot but he's not always right. For now bits. All I know you be the fastest guy in the world. You're not the fastest you gotTA, beat his world record to be the fastest. That's a damn lie and also say before you got slick, I like Acho I changed my mind on that one to come and. Talk About Mach? Slippers we're ball Georgia's being more rated R. Than PG, thirteen with his pretty good t plus at the top of our. News. AD. Step Up. Now in the playoff, we'll tell you if we think he can count on the. Net, speaker yourself welcome back to speak for yourself by Hyundai. L. As other team that's Marcellus as clippers tied in one in one with the Mavericks after losing. Wednesday. George went four for seventeen ill from the field in law. went to. With, with critic who called him out on his performance saying quote. A what anybody think about me believe as you think about before anyway, we joined once again by my dog snick. Rick Marcellus some company I was it smart for Paul George the clap back at his critics no not smart at all hurt me to my core. Until. I. Heard. Him But. I want to be another critic. I didn't want to really feel the heat. PG will fill in and it's interesting. Look. This could get really deep but let me start on the surface with this one. You shouldn't be hurt in the first place. Your Paul George I know you know your fan I know you very well walking around being Paul. George is a blessed experience. You got to remind yourself of those situations especially when you hit low points in life but even if they get a good shot in and I know scroll through sometimes and they snag Metoo Y'all. Got Be right there. That's when you got to tap into your ego. Remind yourself for who are and make sure you don't let them know that got that shot in sometimes you gotta fake it till you make your brother. But in this situation I understand why they got Paul George. If you know him, he has a heart. He is a real person. He is a high character guy and no no, I'M GONNA. Be. Real. If you have a heart and you get on social media. Remind yourself that social media is heart lifts talk about it don't talk about it as already nothing to lose in their mind maybe they do in their real life but also media. As soon as you log on, you have to be ready to engage in senseless experience and Paul George when you hit a low point or just hey, you just had off game. The last thing you WanNa do is go to the. Eggs live man I feel bad for you. Big Dog but you can't let them. See you sweat. There's no problem with him. Clapping back. We've seen Damian Lillard, at any number of players do it. It's how Paul. Okay Coming out. Come on all don't start with ball face lie. I don't give a bleep. Thing me well, then why are you responding if you don't care? That means nothing to me. I just keep it moving so we've got. The second part. I. Don't understand why anybody is thinking about me any way. not the way to go here, and you are a not only an NBA player in your ten season. But you are a spokesman for Gatorade and Nike and to so and pro bass shops. All of those people pay you money because fans think about you and whether they think about you positively or negatively the reality is they think about you you are visible an over by the way in two thousand and nineteen. The fans voted you a starter in the two thousand and Nineteen All Star game for the Western Conference. You weren't having any problem with them thinking about you then Oh man. Look at it comes both weights. You have to accept the fact that you're in the public eye. Sometimes they're gonNA. Love you. Sometimes they're gonNA hate you. But after ten seasons Paul you should know better than this. Yeah. I gotta I gotTa have piggyback on what my both these said. Now I'm GonNa keep your I'm gonNA keep it a buck every day after the show Marcellus. And Slick I get on twitter because I got to see what the people are talking about we do. So for the people we do it for your. So hop on twitter and some comments they hit your heart more than others because some comments got some truth to him yesterday gramophone scrolling on twitter going on somebody the say Acho you need a stylish how to dress oh Pay No attention to that. Marcellus, really know your boy is fresh. Now if you get on twitter and somebody who's like Oshawa you always yelling guy, you know what Helen a lot there might be that that one hits me harder to the core because there might be some truth to it p g Marcellus the reason he's so sensitive is because playoff Pitas new and unimproved playoff. He ain't got out the first round in the last four years. Reason Paul George is a little more sensitive is because he realized there's some truth to what people are saying thousand eighteen nineteen first round exit with thunder. Don't do thousand and eighteen I with the thunder two, thousand seventeen. With the Pacers two, thousand, sixteen first round with the Pacers Paul George realizes wait a second. Maybe, my reputation is starting to precede me the reason it's dumped to respond to the critics is because he's letting his critics. No, they might be right man look damn you. What happens when they say sometimes they argue too they rely. where's your forehead also? that. They used to call the. Town Shoulder. Last, you ain't gotta go head either Let me. Let me go here I had dogs go holler. We know when they get to is cause. Some truth? With the truth. Don't do that but game one playoff he showed up. At the shot and they really wanted game for the clippers. If you WANNA go there in terms of game one. So it's weird how we are using selective perception to let somethings get into US and hurt us. Not Let everything that bill's up, continue to elevate us as slick rick pointed out. All of the endorsements in is Nike shoes and Gatorade audit stuff just being around Paul George you sitting there like that dog did he ever have a cloudy day because of who you are and how you've contributed to the game but let me hit you with two elements right here. The first one comes from Ti. Listening to this song the other day live your life. Whatever it is, but then his first line is really pointed. Abe really hits home never mind would hater say. They fade away for four. At may not telling you I. Don't think that I ain't got some smoke to come back at you with just just ignore to your away. poge understand especially with the volume of criticism that he deals with because all of us combined is not dealing with half will Paul George is dealing with in terms of the volume of criticism we get it. He's active NBA star people we hate Nomi Marcellus. Well, I do but you know still that level yet the web of Soda. Pop and I. Get. But here's some not want to just get real quick because it's amazing when you are on the grind to become a Paul George become us the Rick Dubuque Emmanuel Acho when you are on that climb, no one is sitting there and solidarity saying you're GonNa make it. There's always a critic or to there's always a population of naysayers but you know how you shut them up you made it and then they'll say people because it happened to. Me Show up to your damn draft party eat no food drinking. You'll drink alcohol they come to your game on tickets. You gotta get them, and then you know what you have to do in that moment because now as a social media and everybody thinks they know Paul George to doesn't play well, then they turn them Paul George. You gotTa make it again. Get out that first round big dog make those shots ignore those haters today fade away. Yeah. So I'm going to hone in one word that you said about the people on social media and the reaction that you get. That we all get. The critics. Who are they? What are their credentials, what they know about what you do or job requires? What are they know about Paul George or what the job requires if I look at it in that context, if I get criticism where I get feedback from somebody in the business that knows me and knows the job I'm GonNa pay attention to that? That's constructive. Somebody who doesn't know anything about me or requires. To do the job or what the circumstances were under that in that particular situation, then it really doesn't have a whole lot of meaning and I don't always a apply this. But when I do, it's it. It never fails me and it's my three rules for engaging on social media. When anytime that I WANNA fire back I'm ready to go to war can't look I got to put this person in place. Does it need to be said? Does it. Need to be said by me does it need to be said by me right now and if I can't definitively say yes. Yes. Yes and I probably need to chill for a hot minute I guarantee you Paul George. If he's thinking about this today is probably hitting that delete button going. I don't need to engage I. Don't need to put put that there. But anytime we're emotional and we get into it. Probably let's you know social media is like a loaded gun man you shouldn't deal with it. You shouldn't pick it up when you are under the influence of emotion fatigue or anything else boy I would love to see Slick Rick's draft in box I know a full of tweets you. Yards. I'm. told a PG success is the best way to silence the haters and ultimately PG got to go out there and be successful he seven in Seventeen last twenty, four playoff games in the last twenty, four playoff games only posted a positive plus minus nine time. So PG. If you really want to shut him up, you gotta go ball Marcellus to that point actually wrote a philosophy paper on Ti Different Song though coming up Russell Wilson wants to be mentioned in the same breath is Tom Brady and peyton manning something. He got it do a couple of things I must plain net. For yourself is by day, might find this hard to believe. But in Russell Wilson's eight years in the League, nineteen players have received MVP votes while Wilson has doughnut zero that sinking. But the former super bowl champs says he prefers parades over individual wars take this. Number one in Portland. Is a winning art in these and stuff like that. What we? Get One day. On the reality is is that you're not awake also winning all and. To too. Shy. But hopefully hopefully the. MVP. Because we're doing team. Together only Joined now, by Fox Nfl Atlas Lavar Aaron Arrington Otto need to know does Russell Wilson need to MVP to be an all time? Great qb absolutely. Now, first thing let me get this out the way to pleasantries Russell Wilson one of the greatest quarterbacks we've seen in this generation 'cause you know Marcellus the hate is coming if you ever dare speak the truth which does not Uplift Russell Wilson? Yet, how does he need an MVP at least that let me make a distinction clear there's a difference between a hall of Famer and an all time Great Russell Wilson very likely going to be an hall of Famer but to an all time great gentlemen I'm thinking how by I'm thinking top ten and the problem is to be an all time. Great. You have to be great all time. Simple Russell Wilson I think about the quarterbacks of this generation. Tom. Time. Great who? Really is so complicated by the so simple gotta be great often. Think about the quarterback this generation where does this fall in Tom Brady peyton manning drew brees Aaron. Rodgers. Then I would probably Ben Rothlisberger and then I would probably go. Russell Wilson. So Russell Wilson is a generational right. Now he's falling in the mix at five or six of the generation because he doesn't have an MVP because he doesn't have a super bowl mvp you got guys like Patrick Mahomes mind you NFL MVP's Super Bowl. MVP's already in his third year of going on of NFL football. Notice Russell Wilson need at least an MVP to be an all time. Great. Absolutely. No. Knock on Russ still the hall of Famer, still elite, but to be an all time. Great. Great. Amongst the all time ranks and Russ has to get at least several MVP, several super bowls it can't is biggest accomplishment. Gentlemen cannot be going to the Super Bowl, his rookie year or has to be another stamp can make Russ and all time. Great. I don't think he needs it. First of all, look how high esteem we have Russell Wilson without it already, and if he goes out there Magin, if I love you and Fantasy Land Acho managing if he had completed that go line pass that's to ring. But even without that, still what's in front of Russell Wilson in terms of temps opportunities accomplishments yes. He can be an elite all time quarterback I think he's already going to be considered an all time quarterback. Yes Nice Cherry on top I give you that but not an essential ingredient when you talk about who Russell Wilson is. Big Ben Rothlisberger is going to be considered a hall of Famer. Some will debate if he's going to be all time great or hall of Famer Absolutely. He's going to be in that conversation and he's never WANNA, MVP. Eli also now, he lives at the bottom of that. He's going into hall of fame, but we're not gonNA considering probably all Tom. Greg. But still another time great quarterback who hall of Famer who will not get an MVP and be. Respectful whatever way you get up the mountain but you got up there brother how about Dan fouls. Bob Greasy Jim Kelly. Joe. Name of Roger Staubach lot of tremendous quarterbacks never ever received this award and let's talk about this award and this I think Russell? Wilson. These respect his road even if it doesn't consider him an MVP A I tell the world if you don't see my stripes. You can't see because they're they're. Russell Wilson Looking at these voters, Oh y'all my stripes will they're there because this look it Russell Wilson two, thousand, thirteen, thousand and fourteen lead to see off to the top seed in the NFC. No votes also two thousand fifteen finished the year. Highest quarterback rating nfl no votes two, thousand seventeen led the NFL and touchdown passes and second second rush yards. Then Lamar Jackson basically do that but was I rush arts and Lamar Jackson wins the MVP Russell Wilson. No. MVP votes at all. So maybe it's the vision of the voters that needs to be under the microscope and needs to be considered more so than Russell Wilson and his greatness. Yeah. Thank you guys Boven awesome great points I think they're certainly levels to it. I don't think he needs an MVP to be considered an all time. Great. But with that being said, I come back to what you were touching on right there Marcellus in terms of the boating and how MVP's are looking more and a lot of ways it's a popularity contest. It's like, did you get hot at the right time? I'M Jj Watt as as an example, all the time when I look at the greatest defense alignment of all time. I think about Bruce, Smith about Reggie White I. Think About Deacon Jones I i. think about some some really really phenomenal football players and then I start thinking about Jj. Watt. And a few different guys that may or may not fall into the conversation and and that's with MVP owners. So to me, I think that it Kinda comes down to like what you said it Marcellus is what those voters are feeling in the moment you know Teo was a first ballot hall of Famer there's No way you can argue that shitting. Amount in he should have been up for. For some strange reason the voters didn't feel as though it was right to put him in as a first ballot hall of Famer Harry Carson Same. Situation Harry. Carson got to the point where he didn't even want to go into the pro hall of fame and he was wanted to grace that had ever played the linebacker position. So when it comes down to things that are based upon a vote and it's not a vote from the players or the coaches themselves i. Tend to go towards. Yes. He can still fall in the conversation of greatness but that is a logjam of a distinction to have at the quarterback position and I think that that's the biggest the biggest counter argument. All of this is that Russia's great. But the greatest of all time at played out a level that's different than Russell Wilson's at this moment. Now let me let me clarify Russ one super bowl, his sophomore season, not his rookie season boulevard to your point. Barbershop conversation. So let's just keep it real as levels to greatness in the NFL first, and foremost just making it to the NFL more likely to get struck by lightning than you are to make it into the NFL. That's an accomplishment now, the Arizona Fo- career three, point, three years. So it'll play over that. That's another little accomplishment. Then you can be a good nfl player play five or six seasons not make any pro while pros. Then, you can be a great nfl play right playing making all pro make a COUPLA pros make a couple of pro bowls. Then you can be a hall of fame type of NFL player seven, eight, nine pro bowls six saw pros, three first team all pros, but then you can be all time great several MVP's multiple super bowls maybe even a super bowl and the your. So Again Russ in that series climbing up that tier of greatness. That great category he's flirting with that hall of fame category. I still think probably needs to be a little bit more lengthy his career to get that. But when you talk about all time greats Marcellus, you can't hand out no participation trophies and just throw everybody in the all time. Great conversation because are only about five or ten all time greats but Marceau's what is your category? What are your qualifications for all time greatness? Bald the hell out and that's where Russell Wilson does listen. Is he going to be top ten all time? He's certainly going to be in that conversation. We know there's about five we could just read off that logjam I'll. be able to clip stoves. But if you say top ten is all Tom Great I think Russell Wilson still has that opportunity certainly. Let's be real. I this is this is why I don't go to barbershops one could only. Because to Y'all love to watch a movie innocent tired and compared to one just started or one is in the middle. I'm not going to do that I am not that board I have four kids and three of them at home and they're all under the age of five. So I am not going to have that long conversation but Russell Wilson if he continues with his excellence, is GonNa put himself in that conversation that said, what is that conversation and some of the criteria? Oh, you gotta every vote Derek Card MVP votes. Philip Rivers Carson. wentz. So we don't even need this as a stepping stone to say, you're going to be an all time. Great Conversation. Let's just be real because sometimes they give it to guys who deserve in that moment, but it doesn't really lend itself to their overall success that said I wanNA talk about how we only measure how short people fall instead of how far they've come. How people come up short like they keep moving, go posted at another box and forget about the role travel for Russell Wilson. Let's not forget that because all success it seems like sometimes people forget that this was the third rounder who was there when they had a franchise quarterback, they thought. I remember that and and a preseason he took his job and became danger Russ. He became the guy we're seeing right now and I, Never WanNa forget where he came from in terms of all of the obstacles placed in front of him, and he still right now a topic on this conversation as an owner. You. Know. All. The dues to be in that conversation and you have not named ten guys that already have trump Tim Marcellus is. I don't take Marcellus as a sentimental type, right? Well, Russell Wilson. So much count air at elite. It so low since. Is An incredible human being but Marsano To learn is we got to differentiate between the player in the person you can have an MVP and not be an all time. Great but you can't be an all time great and not have an emcee the see that's the thing that is the great distinction. That is a great divide to Lavar point if you want to say that Jj Watt who has multiple defensive MVP's isn't An. All Time. Great. Okay. Your prerogative but you can't be an all time great and not have MVP Marcellus. If you WANNA talk hoops whether Jordan, where the Kobe whether Lebron whether Corinne these are guys that have and be peace to their name. They were at least the best at what they did when they did it. But Russ I, he had manning the AD. Brady were office Burger. Later, on his career now you got Lamar Patrick Mahomes. If you can never look at Russ and say, you're the best quarterback in the NFL for one season I don't know that you can say you were an all time. Great. Not Saying you weren't great but all time that's a whole another distinction that is hard to sniff. You compare basketball football. When you were players on the court more impact, you could go both ways but hey, I'll let you beat analysts you WANNA be coming up big expertise for deck. I got Ezekiel Elliott this year. There's something that may hold them back. We'll explain next. Back to feet for yourself. Let's move to town where the cowboys head coach. Mike McCarthy was brought in because he was able to achieve with Aaron, Rodgers and Green Bay, well, most everyone surprise McCarthy will not be doing the play calling in Dallas instead offensive coordinator Kellyn more will because McCarthy said it was The best decision for the football team nine buying joined once again by Lavar Arrington big bro Marcellus. This be a problem but I'm cowboy hell. It's going to be a problem with. Let me tell you how this goes. One we have to understand worst playwright here coaches especially head coaches they get bored in the midst of one of their practice days and I'm GonNa break that down for you in a second but always remember de energy cannot be created or destroyed just transferred. So coach has done this same thing before in Green Bay when he was no one dog this me to give up the play calling duties to on these special teams that kept us out the super. Bowl you remember that time and then they hit struggle they hit that bump they hit the struggle bus and he was like giving them play calling duties back again and he said I would never do that again but he's in this position right now. So let's talk about that practice day when coaches coaches get bored with our team, we used to have it at eight o'clock in the morning team that's only like five ten minutes after that you're in Owen And in head coach has to go do his his duties as the head coach. Make sure it owners good. General manager checking cap out is all that stuff media whatever, and then we go into our position groups and now the head coach is kind of done with his work and now he's like. We'll be doing. So you know what? He's GonNa do he just going Mingo his way lean on into that office coordinator rule look at Kelly Moore a young stood at young genius Guru and he hear something that's going to trigger them like that. I wouldn't call no ex- riot drag double edged Z. Slot on that I wouldn't call it on that part. Of the field but hey, I'm gonNA. Let it go. He'll watch it play out on a Sunday and he blade damn anew and this didn't work and they NASCAR to play in his mind a couple of times to the finally he's GonNa be there one time and then meeting room go say hey killing if you don't mind for a second if I could. WIN IT GOES DOWN is going to break down. I've seen it happen too many times he will be calling plays if things don't go right and go right fast cowboys. Calling plays and calling this a problem are two different conversations. He reserves the right to be able to call the place whenever he liked the call to play that doesn't necessarily make that a bad thing. So I don't see this being a problem. You. Talking about if you take. The power office coordinator does it starts making play calls that doesn't necessarily mean there's a problem things that he's assisting. So we don't have to put into the system and assistant again. Okay. Yeah I mean that's just how it works when you're in a team sport in a team environment and you're delegating things I I look at this situation like. McCarthy is coming into that second third child situation. Right. This is his second head coaching job. So that first child at first job, you're going to do everything about a book reading it. You're asking questions you're learning you want to know how you can do it exactly the way that it needs to be done to protect the your job security, but you also want to be the best you can be for for the team. So this is a second child. So He's learnt all his mistakes everything that he feels he went wrong he's had. Plenty of time to go over that over and over and over again while he was watching the season last year. So to me I, think he made the decision based off of being educated all what you heard him say what's best for the team? That's a very, very direct direct statement and I think that you should lean on that statement that part of the statement and understanding why delegated delegated the calling to Kelly more. Let me tell you why this is a huge problem and it's huge because I feel like I'm having Deja. Vu. that. You feel like you've lived through before quite literally translates to already seen twenty twenty coach. Mike McCarthy has an offensive coordinator that was former cowboy's quarterback or the number seventeen. Jerry Jones hand picks this former cowboy's quarterback to run his offense what I feel like I've seen this before two thousand and seven Jerry Jones Hires Wade Phillips to be the head coach hand picks another former cowboy's quarterback who wears the number seventeen about three and a half years later that offensive coordinator that Jerry Dyer in handpicked he elevates to be. Coke. Not. Irony Jerry Jones is up to something Mike McCartney two, thousand sixteen said I will never do that again. Yeah. That was in like that. That's pretty good play calling. He said I will never do that again, and now in twenty twenty, he didn't say killing more as a phenomenal play caller. So I'm going to delegates didn't say that I want to call the plays because he's a young budding star said I'm going to do that because this in the best interest of the team whose words with. Those Jerry don't Dr. don't do. That has well, how do hey. Cardi did say he's a young special play caller -olutely and look I don't know if that's podium talk or not. But he did some props but it's funny Lavar. said that he had time to reflect on his mistakes and it was pointed out auto. He'd said he made a mistake giving up the play call again and then is Tom Green Day back and does same thing again in the biggest a big problem Lavar. Made that mistake in Green Bay. Okay. Okay. What's The difference situation. Lavar know your high school football coach and being that you're probably guilty of stepping on coordinators toll. So you don't see any problem with this, but we knew and let me tell you what this reminds me of what I. Had to get ready prepare for my driving test y'all remember that and yet to take your Mama your daddy bucket out, we had a seventy five Martin Monte Carlo and used to. Make it all this noise barely could turn turn radius all tight whatever and I remember my dad's we gonna go into the parking lot and you know I kill the parking lot. It'll cars around. Here's anti up Jalen who? Are Going, street real quick, and I got on three knol Son Carson. No and I got lower harbors. said. Pool. Overboard. I'm going to take over from here to get this right you think that might be going to. Drive. This car to the dirt Hale. That's not a problem though to reserve the ability to take over play calling is not should be considered a problem. It should be considered an adjustment at an adapt. To the situation to make it into a derogatory thing. I think is they're responsible. Because it doesn't mean that it's a pro new my daddy didn't trust me and I knew I wasn't ready that is a problem for young ducks. abloh. Other side to. Being. Wasn't me? That's being a responsible adult that could be -verting you from what situation could lead to, which is what a car accident. Now, what's the ripple effect of him allowing you to continue to drive? That's not a bad thing that he's protecting you from your own self something about killing more doesn't matter how you approach it will about killer Maura. How's this? How's that feel does it? Positive But sometimes, you have to learn from the things that that lead you down the road where you're currently at it doesn't necessarily make it a thing I learned a long time ago. Coach if you see me make a mistake in the first quarter. Let me keep playing because I self. Correct. How many times you've been out there and you went out there is my best move what that didn't work but you need coast yanked shoe and says, you know what you ain't doing nothing in the first quarter highs that a positive lavazza different. There's a difference between. Coach as votes because I'm the only one that would understand that out of the three of US sitting on his. Coat. One coaching and we. Advocates a very it's a very different approach. So when you're talking about coaching constituents as opposed to the players the talent. All right. So I think you guys are are off based on what it is that. Relapse steel so I try to. Do I do. Need an office coordinator Lavar he's a guy for you. Davis a big night for them Lakers elbow. I'll tell you why that. State. Run and. Still Christly my men Emmanuel Acho. For a great man a little hot with the street piece on. Shorts. Talk about you hot artist moon can never please. Let's get to a big story return to the fakers. Sorry Pal be. Professor Malcolm. Anthony Davis said earlier this week that his job is to relieve pressure off Lebron. Well, he did that in a big way last night scoring thirty one points in a blowout win against the Blazers after the game the BRA propped up ad also comparing him with former great teammates listened to the king. Of great teammates in my career. Those corners? and. He does things that. Are Not capable of doing. The same sense. They would wait weight and you can do some things that Uh. Eighty. Not Capable of doing. And also play with. Kyrie Irving. Things that way and eighty is not. So. Great players and that's just there's three. Oh. So today approved Bronx and count on them Lino me after dominant game to. Bro. Didn't he did. He did but understand explanation if you in a relationship bro and you get let down, say you get cheated on you know and say, thank you get cheated on the next day. So what with flowers right and they make it up to you all of a sudden that doesn't mean that you can count on them because they remedied the let down from the day your week before and ad length the Lakers down in game one. Only. Had what seven points in the second half twenty eight total was seven in the second half didn't dominate. So then he comes back and game two dominates one of only five players in the shot clock era to have thirty and ten, and under thirty minutes remember let me take you back second game in a bubble. Let the Lakers down against the raptors completely disappeared only at fourteen point. What happens the next day next game because the jazz forty, two points. Okay. Game six in a bubble against the Lakers ad less the Lakers down only has eight points where we get on them, the media jumps on his neck next game. Seven point what has shown us is OK. Okay. If I ever let you down I promise I'm GonNa make it up to you what hasn't shown us at least not of late not in the last eight, nine games that you can count on me to do it consistently. We know we can count on him to show up when things get desperate mckelway count on a if and when the Lakers go up three one to close it out when the game don't mean as much a this show me, he can ball ad show me he can dominate a show me. He can single handily essentially a game but to count on me means I need to see it over the course of time a B. Haven't shown us that over the course of time, he shows us that you can count on him for one game, but the next game, what are we going to see? So last night's one game sample size it didn't show me that I can count on. I. Learned a lot more about not only a D.. But I'll show with that answer right there because I've been wondering which mongrels be hitting me up too because you'll good looking man you bribery reshape that you kind educated I mean it's obvious. I could get away with. Get Away with saying this yard. Dare you say if he amy. Your Star. You know you're you're you're. Back in. On a bash, I'll be back I. Don't know why he single and I just figured it out standards too. Damn High Tech for Merryman. Bring it down a notch. Down one nuts, he had twenty points. He win. This season average. All of them had minuses in the star. Light Up. and Ab took that to heart and what I love about him is a response as the flowers that he brought to Lebron to the Lakers he said and he told everybody I took it to heart I feel disappointed in my effort I felt disappointing performance now because it wasn't a good performance but because like the old adage says be greater dingy greatest excuse and think about it why. No not yet is getting their own. My second book, but here's the thing. Did was like it didn't work whatever IDID wasn't enough and that's the beautiful thing about it. So now you look ad talking to the Bra the Bron-. Supporting Him and challenging him he shows up in the next moment the next opportunity. So I wouldn't call game one cheating I will call gay one not answering your text. Okay. The amount of. My phone died I couldn't get a charger when nobody else's house I mean a bubble he above are hoping within let's get to Slick Rick Dubuque grown is Rich in the brumby confident in a d after his dominant gain too. He can't be because the number one question that we have about Anthony Davis is not, can you fill a box score? Not, can he be dominant at the beginning of a game or even through the first three quarters of a game? Can Anthony Davis deliver in a playoff game in the fourth quarter? That is the question. How many minutes did he play in the fourth quarter last night? He didn't play in the fourth quarter last night because the was already decided. Now, that's not his fault but the thing that Lebron needs to know is with the game on the line, can you deliver and what in crunch time and what we have seen to this point is Anthony Davis is not answered that question. So he can count on that in the fourth quarter even the big games during the regular season could not count on that, and this is the element that really concerns me about Anthony Davis and his big performances is that they are always accompanied by great three point shooting. Three for four talk game to over five, a game once lit. If you look at his playoff history or even his his bubble history hit the big games that he has had in the bubble he has shot three well, well, he's a career thirty, thirty, two percent. Three point shooter. Am I counting on Anthony Davis to be my go-to knocked down three point shooter with the game on the line. Leading to a championship. I I would not feel comfortable counting on that. So I can't imagine that Lebron is. I. Feel I'm Weird Place Right now looking at a guy who entered defeat. Was Twenty Eight and eleven, and in a win, it's thirty one and eleven and everyone keeps talking about his energy or effort, and that was the difference or he didn't even have the play in the fourth quarter where he struggled. So we need to see that. Let me give you a story about those who achieve the same thing. But one makes it look more difficult and we give that person credit and follow me here I'm in Jacksonville and his training camp and it's this compromise receiver out there. Let's just say that limited athletic ability and he runs he. Runs his little route streak streak streak streak to throw the ball. He Dies Ford I mean he gives parallel with the ground catches into crowd goals wild at training camp and I remember our coach sitting there said year. If he was faster, he wouldn't had to dive think about that because if you look Anthony Davis don't get into this measure stick of all if he's not sweating if he's not giving you four effort, he's still not giving you buckets and production because he is. So now I gotTa Shut Shaw both down and silence all of you a why lease. This is Anthony Davis in his realization. Oh, there's a difference between doing your best and doing whatever it takes and I think right now it's like rick. You've gotten confused between Anthony Davis taken that challenge ticket to and saying you know what I will do whatever it takes. It was a challenge issue to me I improved on my season average. Let me get improved on my season average and game one. Oh but that wasn't enough. So now I will do whatever it takes zest the Robin I need if I'm Batman. Think. That's A hard act to follow on I still want the music, but it's fine. The fact of the matter Marcellus with all of that, and that was a phenomenal performance just but I wonder where you've got that outfit, I'd like to borrow witnessed. This eighty three thirty plus point games in a bubble. After his first one, he followed it up with a fourteen point game after a second one, forty two, he followed it up with a nine point. Yesterday where we saw his third one what is? Going to do for us next when I look at consistency that tells me if I can count on you, we just haven't seen it consistently you right eighty he to make it. Look easy. What's going to happen after he balls? That's the question the question I can't Kennedy Ball. The question is hey, after you ball be. because. If I can count on you. One good date night Marcellus cut don't mean I can count on you broke as you know what I'm saying like. You gotta take her out on a couple. Good consist single trying to tell me how to get a woman I know. The. Big Question Year is Ken. Lebron. Count on Anthony Davis to help him win a championship. Not just count on him in this vague sense. But to help him win a championship and I have to look at what Lebron himself said about what? Can Do Kyri and Dwayne Wade couldn't do. But dwayne Wade and Kyri could do certain things that ad couldn't do. He won championships with Kyri and with Dwayne, Wade, and what was the one thing those guys could do? They could deliver in the clutch slow they bring they can get you big buckets in the fourth quarter. If ad can't get that, then I don't see the formula for Lebron James Previous championships working in this instance from Lebron the great to another great. Let's talk about coming up air rogers who wasn't happy when packers drafted Jordan look. So now is it his job to teach them what to do? We'll tell you nets. Back to speak for yourself. It's no secret and Rogers wasn't a huge fan of the packers drafting door love in the first round thing. Going pretty well so far with love saying he's already learned a lot by watching. adding. It's awesome to be able to see. Take it joined once again by Love Barbara Marcellus I'm going to you first does an rogers needs to be a good mentor during love? Yes he needs to be a good mentor to Jordan love and I think a Rogers knows how this plays out because he's experienced were Brett farve learned a ton from Brett Farve in terms of that exchange of Hey, i. know you were to franchise it's time to pass the franchise to me was the wildly isn't for this it's. Passed the torch before it burns you. Would far didn't do and a-rod is learn from this when he prefers. That Jordan Love was getting drafted to the Green Bay packers. You know who told him that? Who Total is marketing agent? Marketing comes into play because one you get paid the big bucks to do the things you don't want to do air rodgers sitting here like I know the writing on the wall about two years here based on my day cap numbers. So I'm going to play this road the right way because when I moved forward, I wanNA have a good name and reputation to my next land is spot but also auto want this to place breath farve did in his exchange with me. So it makes a ton of sense that he's going to go out there and be a good mentor and he needs to be Garcellano. He doesn't a dog eat dog world lavar. Lavar asked me how many times has marcellus taken me to breakfast? How many times nine Lavar asked me how many times Marceau's taking me to lunch Sir how many times Lamar asked me how many times has marcellus taking me to dinner since I moved to L. A. I'm guessing, Oh, I'm guessing this is consistent. You're a smart man you see. Well, I've been on this. Then with this lovely gentleman who I'd like to refer to my big brother, he hasn't bothered to take me under his wing hasn't bothered mentor me. He hasn't bothered lend me any wisdom from his prolific NFL or co host killer. He hasn't bothered to do any sort of these things Marcellus. Thing he said, put your IPAD till. You're right. So when you're looking into notes, it looks like it's still looking at me. That's the only mentor ship that MARCELLA BUYS ME I. I have had to steal and take I haven't been nine or sell us healthy please Marcellus help me I'm drowning and he looks at me like Huh Young whippersnapper do it yourself and therefore how dare you Marcellus eight at Aaron Rodgers Mentor Jordan love when you sir you yourself haven't even bothered to mental meet. First of all, I see how you are with this Cortina Umass where It's a damn pandemic I. Take it. You know we're talking to the set. To get back on the set I am not bringing. I'm not like Lebron Palm. Springs children with TJ. Let's have fun. Here's the thing there was podium talking. Got You. Admit this podium talk from Jordan. Love. This is my only issue real quick. He said I've got to do's that I can learn from. Air Rogers and Tim Boyle I don't believe that Jordan love is telling the full truth from his heart. When he says he can learn from Tim Boyle Timbo you haven't thrown a pass NFL. Yeah. You've been here one year. So why would you wanNA cooperate and join the name of Aaron Rodgers Tim boy unless you doing that players podium talk. Aaron Rodgers doesn't need to be a mentor to Jordan La is just that's just the reality of it and artless for what it's worth. Jordan love has got to be as focused and as dowd in as he can possibly be to watch and learn winning ways and winning habits and to avert any bad habits and losing habits. That was those things show is well, I can recall my freshman year in high school the. Greatest football player I ever seen with my two eyes in high school was our quarterback air cast robots. Air was so great. We WanNa stay championship. I never won a championship ever again after my freshman year when I realized that it's set the tone for how I viewed the game tone for how I studied the game I never went to Eric and say ere, what are you looking at? Teach me what you`re Doing I always looked at his relationship with his head coach and one at the same relationship. So I started being very attentive to the things that he was doing. I actually figured out what he was looking at when he was watching the film I listen to the exchange between him and the coach and I started trying to find the film to Mimic that. So to me, it's GONNA come down to love really paying. Attention to the do's and don'ts away he sees Aaron. Rodgers in the coach is doing about who you have the most to learn from be present in the moment because experience is your best teacher so I would say it's not imperative for him to be a great mentor or even Goodman Sorta George love he just has to be present I. Know you play High School quarterback you ain't play the same position nope no one. I did well, we were in the same room and I did play every position because you in high school layer of the year you know which is the best all we going. Lame. So I was good at every position. So let's Talk to a lot of sounds like a good job. Yes. Yes. Good Job Lavar ignore Marcellus meanwhile. Lunch and we will not go. I. Have to say about. Back, speak for yourself. Let's talk about the Lakers flew out the places last night to up the series at one game, a pico join album Jimmy. So the deliver through their person was sold door. And this is all of this right here's Y'all y'all did we became. Out Ones that kept on picking on Anthony Davis Yeah no good and damn well. I. Got it. Right. Okay. You know what that boys full government name is what did that boy's name? Is Anthony Marshawn Lynch Sammy Davis, junior to third. Notable look like he's. From Kentucky. Boys wrong that boys from Chicago that voice from shock. The land of chance, the rapper land of. The land, of Brock and Michelle. Landa chief chief. Okay. You talking about. So peer pressure for your ass. Okay. For Seven. This kind of like you when you was incompetent in the kids used to chase you and make you run home, you'd run in the house. I got no water head and your Mama say now baby no, you don't. But your mom also taught me not to tell your shoes at the top of the stairs to didn't she see. Davis Davison you. Davis is in trouble he got his sister to fight his bubbles anthony. Davis had to go full fledged little girl last night. A. Law. Disappointing, loss. Water real.

"Marcellus Wiley in the building. Out Show Dr Today High. Oh Oh. No time. No color either kind of day whereas. Ako, fake I. Don't know what's going on. We're here for the next two hours, which is so get comfortable, and let's give it started with the acres who were trying to go up three Oh in their series. The nuggets didn't get that memo never had a twenty point lead early in the fourth quarter Lakers back behind the BRA triple double and cut it to three. Flynn and there was just too much of Fall Murray finch twenty points in a win despite the loss Anthony Davis said quote we're still look to one. We have control of the series. So auto are the Lakers in trouble after losing game three not at all this is basketball. This is what's all told me. UNEXPECT-. This is this is what you told me. This is basketball. You GotTa Win Four Games the nuggets one one, there are three seat congratulations. You should win one gate I'm happy for him in all honesty it makes today show a little better. It makes the game if our now better a little bit more exciting and honesty as a little more value to the championship that Lebron James is likely to win. Oh No No. Because now, what makes the seem as though the nuggets are more competitive have the bronze everybody would have said it's too easy at least now people can say, Oh, it's a little bit more of a challenge I'm not at all worried the Brian has been here before four times binds you and the conference finals two, thousand twelve, they go up to against the Celtics out celtics come. Storming, back, the has to win in seven, two, thousand, fifteen, they go up against the hawks they went forward that look Lebron hasn't even had to pull out that look at that game six against in two thousand twelve looked down against the celtics forty five fifteen by Lebron. Has To pull out that look that's when I'll be nervous but I'm not nervous right now Marcellin, Connecticut's won a game. Good for them, you're supposed to win a game Lebron, eighty, when they combined for fifty five points Bay have lost five times on the season when they combined for. Serious. When they combined for fifty five points, they win five out of every six games that means you're going to lose one, thirty six. This is the one I'm not worried in fact, I'm happy havoc. Gives you something to talk about because you ain't got you ain't GonNa have any AMMO at least it gave you one bullet tooth a one bullet. Won't bullets go ahead you WANNA play Russian roulette with me you shouldn't. Be Russ. How whatever? Okay let me just talk to you from my pain I'm GonNa Talk to you from my scars. Been here before and I've heard Someone else on the set. Say things like I'll big off. You know what is this one game? It's okay you show me. Oh. Is Lebron footage of his doing I rose from two thousand fifteen yellow abroad has been there before but so had the nuggets I don't need. To tell you that this nuggets team, how dare you not stop them and stop them out into the grave because if you give them any signs of life, they will take full advantage of i. told you yesterday this team has been in four playoff series the last two years where they've been down and all of a sudden themselves, either winning necessaries or at least taking the lead in this series including this year what they were down three, one, three, one, and then. You say just one game you look and it's not going to be just one game. Let's be real about this. Jamal Murray went out there and said the same thing ad said quote we we should be up to one right now to be honest. So we're just GONNA move on Game Jamal Murray said, but being real. They outplayed the Lakers not just yesterday but in the. Buzzer beater game as with what he's GonNa do. So I'm not even go. Like fantasy island like to donate. But. If you look at it, the Lakers are trending in the wrong direction. We gotta be respectful to the facts win by twelve then winning the buzzer beater and then lose by eight and haven't figured out Yokich, and now Jamal Murray has been a luck. I seen this movie before and it's been recent history not two, thousand fifteen. But recent History Beauty Marcellus you saw this movie with a much worse director which much worse lead actor with a much worse supporting cast. To Godown team. Slippers. Clippers marcellus movie to was a low budget fail. Okay. I'm trying to show. You may ask her nominate. Lebron. James I'm trying to I'm trying to show you a different type of film. Don't talk to me about these low budget film clippers that you watch me give you some facts. Let me give you something to that you can digest. Brian James. He's on his twenty third series when he's been up to this is twenty one, the last twenty, two times he's closed it out. Okay. Twenty two. Times I'm not even saying he's not scared. What I'm saying is Bup lebrons feelings I'm just GonNa Stats Marcellus. If you were to do anything twenty, two consecutive times then you know GonNa Happen on the twenty third one I'm going bet on you should because by lose money though a maybe but not likely because history is told me twenty were the first time Marcellus did let me down second third fourth fifth six, seven, eight, nine, ten, took the twenty second time Marcellus has never let me down. So why would I think you don't do that now and the other thing is this. The Brian No matter how much people wanted to make Lebron James. Not, Lebron James No matter how much people want to make Paul George and say that Paul George is back PG. People just have to put respect on the fact of the Nuggets Argetine. There are three seat for the reason the nuggets have the third best record over the last two years. Cumulatively, we'll talk to you the top tier. The nuggets are not the Lakers. The Lakers are not the clippers and we just have to make sure we keep that in context the Nuggets Wanna a gay, you should win a game I thought the Lakers GonNa win and five. So this is not surprising to me. Oh, while the Lakers have been outplayed at least the last five quarters, you have a stretch in the fourth quarter yesterday. But if you say it totality obviously has been five straight quarters. Here's the think. Lebron James You keep bringing up all his historical statistics the same time when I bring up Tom Brady's yesterday. You always demands. Undermine Tom Brady's pass success but you want to give Lebron his credit. I can play this show different every day I could do it with you but this is what is discouraging about this. The James After the Game Lebron's the king highest I q on the core highest IQ maybe in the game ever comes out and says, you know what to me turnovers and then you know most people face value because you trust in the king not me you know me facts over Phyllis wait a minute broad. lebrun. You guys won a game where you had more turnovers in Game Two, twenty three. And then this game you actually have were turnovers in the nuggets sixteen at to lose that game it sound like the king took a punch and doesn't even know which way is up right now and didn't let's talk about Berea real a big team like the Lakers they got. Out there and play rotation how you get out rebounded by night that's point. My point is this because I didn't get there. You got there. Thank you sir. There's this Alkali your Marcellus and the Lakers the first game eight rebound forty, eight rebounds Lakers second game. How are we on the nuggets by six? I didn't play in the NBA I played a little bit of low level ball and. Anybody knows rebounding his want to kind of like. Win They didn't want to wear. The nuggets wanted it more also that Jomo Murray said that Malone said that everybody Jack Kennedy. Jet A chuck everybody. said that okay. The nuggets wanted it more. Lebron James Yes he admittedly a we want this. We weren't as hungry Frank Vogel in the third quarter during a time out with the Audio San. This team wanted more than we do right now we have to fix that the Lakers led up. Yes, they. Was An outline I'm not worrying how long Your dictating the entire course at again next I don't say I'm still in your points when you get to them. So late kind of like a to his first rebound. Four, thirty, four, thirty, six. Appoints I before get too early. Now, let's get to somebody who we know. About. Lebron James, his former teammate Fox, NBA analyst Tristan Thompson so Trista Order Lakers and trouble after losing game three. What are you wearing? Sir, what is that? Look. My shirt that you don't give. Jack Mclean may disturb for me maybe for me. Hook. Me Up like. Like Time Bahamas I like. Marceau's and rip it up. Like I gotta say the Lakers, keep losing you go get Lebron when he go to Cancun because that's the Cancun looking shirt big dog bookkeeping. I'll saying, no, not in trouble I mean look it's the western conference finals. Bitch Denver's battle-tested. They've went to game seven. Lebron the Lakers they know that was not going to be a cakewalk for all I mean we gotta respect this Denver Club man they what they've done. They took ourselves as clippers in. Gain, ten pounds in and out. So. No. I. Know. I've been down onto and it was actually against the Celtics two, thousand seventeen we went down to I. Know One thing for sure is that those nuggets when they came in a locker room for game three, they approach that game the game seven because the last thing you want to do is go down three against any ballclub because that's that I don't WanNa climb. So I've been positioned before. So they treated this game was a game seven. Mike Malone made his adjustments and now it's on, Frank Vogel Him and his coaching staff that got to look into film and look how can they make their adjustments trip and let me ask you this because I've always wondered and although there are a lot of carryover in certain sports but I don't know if there's carry over in basketball if the Lakers are up to wo- and we know. A. Lakers. Go ahead and win this game go ahead and really essentially close this thing out how is it that the nuggets can want it more even know you have a championship potential on the line how is it that the nuggets can go out there and want it more than the Lakers even though obviously lake up to well but there's still so much on the line a net mindset. Yeah crazy crazy because I. Remember. So we're playing Toronto we're up to we'd by forty both times. Slapped How we're going to Toronto and we think we think we've got to mortgage Toronto, and which are thinking about it because staying kick it, we want to kick it in Toronto Old. Do. We let it. It's just a mental thing. We let up a little bit. Then they beat us beautiful gave term like, okay. We're hanging in five games. What happens again on that Sunday Sunday afternoon Toronto beat us again to Oh is just a mental thing. It's like at that point at the point which now or visit us. No No. Never worried that it was more just we just got the game series. Don't mess around the game and I think. When you mess around the game, it come invites you into bud. So I think the Lakers they took their fault, the gas a little but they said, you know we're up to maybe guys in the locker room and and Denver Nuggets Locker man we did a seven game series twice we play against as Laker team Lebron maybe just give up man we had a hell of a run. We're doing big things. Organizations, it'll be happy. But no, you see that might below team you like we came to foreign gas. So I think the Lakers led up but I think the key for further Lakers is how can they neutralize the the role players I think? Whether. It's Jeremy Grad. Michael Porter Jr. or Paul MILLSAP. Whenever those guys have games. Denver's a whole different t because if you look at this look at it, look at Jamal Barbecue Chicken Crusoe, you know that. The Boyfriend Kitchener Ontario doing big things by the way. You look at it. You gotta figure out Jamal Murray. Joke it's going to get there but there's nothing you can do but look he shot from forty like some steph curry stuff. There's nothing you can do about it. The question is, how can you neutralize their third star in the game and that's what Frank Bobo has got to figure out because I think that's right when Jeremy Greg over thirteen point five and also that's one guy you gotta. You gotTA taming it keeps them down you making my. At. Thank you for that Trista. Day because he's A. Star Thurs Star for the Lakers were supposed to be cal. WHO's a minus fourteen in this series play by Michael Porter Jr. and when you talk about having multiple guys off the bench, you have more confidence in what's coming off a diverse bitch in this series. Off the Lakers bitch I heard them talk about he didn't know about the carry over into sport a basketball versus other sports. Well, I do and I learned this the hard way just watching his ears against the clippers and what not watching Denver play Utah. Jazz. Here's carryover I keep tell you guys about the psychological scoreboard Trista just called it momentum or you just take your foot off the gas but Oakham Oh is a real relative of all sports teams and Oakland Mo- decides where he wants to live based on what's going on in the game and between ears right now, the different nuggets have put themselves in the same position they did in their first series the second series think about this guy's they're down to show. Like look if we were down three Oh, we know that nobody comes back from three zero. But now to one situation, even if they lose game four their back to the same place that they've been the last two series where they found themselves victorious. This is the bad recipe for the Lakers when the Lakers walk in after game to you know what they saw. On the whiteboard during Vogel set when he say a win and we dodged a bullet and then the next game you go out there knowing that you just got shot at you also say I take my foot off the gas or you your foot on the gas is just right now the cord there in is this a little faster than here's my issue Marcellus? Yes. Oh. We all know they dodged the bullet Bam Bam they. They got clipped in game three. That's that was talking like that. Can they were down twenty two most they've been down in any as Scott that's not Clinton a different. You are banking on the Denver Nuggets to do something you seen them do twice in the last two weeks. I am banking on Lebron James to do something we've seen him do twenty two times in the last two decades knows his apples to oranges like this. This isn't even a conversation. Bro Might Mention has energy with it take the newer energy than data energy with different. Bad is they're saying you're running with your running for the bow. You're running with this e motions not he motions running with a limited sample. Be Real. I'm using the data of this team the Denver Nuggets Two thousand and twenty, you're giving me Miami. He Cleveland the Bronx you give me Lebron of free agency. You Ain't giving me this. Abroad on this rediker score. Is there any fear because you've been with the? Bron- you've seen him I was in Cleveland Tristen my rookie year second year Cleveland when I was drafted to the browns and you told me in our conversations, there's a different energy. Lebron James shows up and galvanizes the team Marcellus. It doesn't matter what Lebron team talking about. Lebron. He had a triple double. Yeah. WASTED HIS THIRTY POINT TRIPLE Double Act like this is all in the Bronx I said the Lakers table is that why is there? No Fear Trista? Why is there? No Fear? No, no. Fair for. There's no fear. Even I think about this Denver team and reminds me so much of the Celtics where we played when they when they when they had you know Jalen Brown and tatum and they were just younger but they still there Terry Rozier they're sacked I remember that team and On paper I think is very similar to what Marceau's you say you gotTa Kayla and Lebron. The next six players are probably people pick on the Celtics Jae Crowder who knows Isaiah Thomas you those guys right. But today Lebron May d when they play at a high level especially Lebron because Lebron type of player when he plays at a high level, everyone else plays better where like his those two top dogs when they played a high level and the play, it don't matter who the other five is. And that's one thing that I always remember Louise to tell us it says all these teams during the season they wanNA play this system basketball, five guys I'll touch the ball and all feel good job. But soon, the playoffs if you've got the dogs and you had the best players on the court, they talk about said GonNa handle business. So that's that's what I think is going on right now and it just like I've seen this, I've seen this movie before and it usually comes to twenty three. Oh you're. Interested. Movie in the conference. Finals. Movie. conference. Why you to be delayed. Seem the same movie me and trust, and we're going to the navy all buddies now we. Kick back, bring your food. You can order that I bring your drinks. Marcellus was at them ratchet theaters. Low budget. Dhaka's Frank. Stella's watching the bootlegs and the. Clippers. Me and you were watching. Movies Will Bron James Starring Lebron James, here's the thing Marcellus when you notice 'cause I'm GonNa, talk a little Columbia Education. We do so many shows I forget to mention this yesterday. But so I'm GONNA mention anything. Newton's laws Marcel is I long. was that I, it's been. His schooner object in motion will stay in motion unless acted upon by an outside force. The Lakers Bron James are in motion to the NBA Finals Lebron's fourth chip. They are in motion and they are going to stay in motion. They are not worried about the Denver Nuggets peak. That's all this look big little book. That's it. Marcellus. You're in motion to chips there. Are Not enough of a force to deviate that motion that the Lakers are in route two. So stop baking and hoping on a prayer if you need a penny to throw into a wish well I got you after the show you notice go forth these pennies. Go. into. With the rest. You gotTA DUSTY PD loafers also everybody in America knows what's really living like here's the thing messed up giving these old ask stats Lebron when Newton was alive and that's what you keep trying to to me and Y'all y'all think it'd be takes shots at the brought. This is not a McGraw segment this is a Laker segment and Tristan and saying. How everyone feels better played their best when the bra places best he played well last night thirty point triple double. He's having historic numbers and guess what they lost just like Lebron when on the big stage I hate to say this but I gotta be a fact teller. He has lost more than he's one on the biggest stage y'all know that his finals record is three and six zero I'm not. I am not going to discount the vacuum got their. Data like it always is well, the movie theater you guys go to always shows the best movies sometimes I'll walk out of there crying actually more times there's not trust and I got a question just be real interest. Is Yo- Kevin Durant. Thank you. Thank you. Steph curry and his he's more closely infamous moments right now grant Klay Thompson. Marcellus about dirt dirt what about talking about hey, Yo kids and Jamal Murray add up to one dirk and the here Batman Manchester terrier. Today. Knowing breakfast dirt can't. and. Was added hot please give me one more teens that don't want into this will because right now I'm wishing I'm right. But right now we got to see play out guys coming up at the top of the hour we're not done with the Lakers. We go. We'll tell you Lebron AD more to get to the finals. Is A match up of MVP's on Monday night. We'll tell you build a team around Patrick, mahomes or Lamar Jackson that's going to be via. Speak for. Welcome back to speak for. A let's move to Lamar Jackson and Patrick Mahomes. The NFL's last two MVP's have a highly anticipated matchup in Baltimore Monday night the Mars, a very impressive once he won and why dawn regular season as a starter. Oh and to against mahomes. Cheeks. Fun by Lavar ARRINGTON NFL analyst the Marcellus. Your turn. Which quarterback would you rather build around? Patrick mahomes Lamar Jackson. The Mar- Jackson. Now I understand what the stigma is. I understand what the reputation is and I'm here to poke holes at all of that and show you that perception is not reality less look at this situation and I'm going to be mature up here. I'M NOT GONNA act like tour run right now. Instigate. Bang I'm not GonNa Force these these these. Together. Because it's really for the media and fans as Lamar Jackson even said, I don't really care for robberies I'm thinking of the other defense, not the other quarterback, but we're doing a television show. So this has TV. If you look at Lamar Jackson, you gotta break down this position several ways. Let's talk about the mobility or them as a runner them as a passer, and then as a winner up any generalized, those are the three categories I like to focus on as a runner. It's not even close. What are we talked about? This might be the most electric quarterback running the football in terms of mobility we've ever seen. So it's not even close now let's talk about him as a passer and that's why I say looks are deceiving. Out there saying Patrick. Mahomes he. He's the best passive we've ever seen forget about. Now we've ever seen except right now if you look at who has higher touchdown percentage is nut Patrick Mahomes it's actually will Lamar Jackson but allow people to allow ourselves over your cooking books. I'll have to cook I'm GonNa show you guys with the full screen king is all about here is a raven that could fly in any weather I I'm talking about Klay pocket numbers and then under pressure let's talk about all the conditions you have to play. At the quarterback position clean pocket numbers, most people would think if you give a clean PROC in protection to patch him house light up the world he does except Lamar Jackson does even better in both years. Now, you say under pressure that's going to play into strong suits a Lamar Jackson, and know what you're right because more. Is Better. Than Patrick Mahomes and both situations. So August say to me is winner and I understand winning matters. But when you get into the winning conversation, you're starting to incorporate team achievement team wards because the door into a super bowl is going to take the tea not a running back Mark Ingram was last year. So in the team or more I, understand what you want to get the not to patch holes but be careful people because last year we saw Patrick Mahomes when in the big win the super bowl get up by Jimmy. Giuffre three quarters have seventy eight passer rating and throw as many interceptors as he did. So my money because looks are deceiving by the real numbers. Jackson. Marcellus you only four minutes of my life I'll give it back. Before minutes. Look back. It. Helping. When Marcellus puts on his scuba diving goggles he takes. Tank and he goes searching for statistics and then. Find the Pistons on the surface. So let me walk us. Oh you. Let me go find these. Yeah. Yeah. GotTa talk numbers. We're going to. And, the legs are depreciating assets both your arm in your legs because their physical abilities there depreciating assets, we've seen the army depreciate and gossip with rubies, and we know that legs are appreciating Kinda. It's just a fact. Patrick Mahomes in the more Jackson I think that they are both relatively equal. If I had to build a franchise, I say you know what if they're both one hundred? That's fine we can label that as such but one has a depreciating asset that weighs more into him. Being one hundred one has depreciating assets factors more into his greatness Marcellus right now, I'm house hunting and as I drive through Los Angeles two houses that I love. To I love Marcella, these la houses different than the Texas am Burger and so but one house has a nicer exterior than the interior and what else has a nicer interior than the exterior, the problem with the House that has a nicer exterior. Love. It just as much as I love the other house, the exterior is exposed to the elements. So the exterior is going to appreciate a little bit faster than that, house? That has a nicer interior between your same thing, Patrick mahomes versus the more Jackson the Marjasin's that House that's beautiful on the exterior. I loved them both equally. Make a decision, the house with that nicer exterior it's exposed to the elements. Lamar Jackson is exposed to the elements of linebackers, defensive ends of defensive tackle, and those elements will make Lamar Jackson depreciate faster. Now, they are both one hundred right now. But if you making me pick build my franchise around one, I'm going with Patrick Mahomes. Because now a few statistics on my lap, I want to go to just. A few bonani button it up. Let me. Man. More touchdowns a game than the Mark Jackson two point five to one point nine Patrick mahomes has more passing yards a game than Lamar Jackson three, hundred to one hundred, ninety, six, patrick mahomes has more total yards a game than the more. Jackson three hundred seventeen to two, hundred, seventy, five. So that's my first lap my I I put you under my second lap I'm GonNa go ahead and shovel some dirt on top. Oh Man I'm Patrick Mahomes on this one I think it's no brainer. From a critical standpoint and those two categories that I look at that are very important to win the game as a head coach Oh what's What's the world? Is You've used it plenty of times Marcellus what are you have to win in order to win a game? What bat over? Yes that's correct. So in the turnover and turnover was category. We got Lamar Jackson Nine career interceptions while we have Patrick Mahomes with eighteen. Now, that's a lot of turnovers and you went look at Pat Mahomes and say that's But let's add this to to the equation. When we're talking total touchdowns. Lamar Jackson in the same amount of time three year period. It's Africa's patch on bit his rookie year and one of his touchdowns his rookie year. So we won't down his rookie year but touchdown ounce. forty-six Lamar Jackson and eighty one eighty for one pass. It's not even close. So you do the ratio between turnovers two touchdowns. Patrick Mahomes isn't a whole nother stratosphere even from Lamar Jackson. So it's to me I'm going with the turnover ratio and the scoring percent, which is by far on the side of Patrick Mahomes to win gangs. Freeman. Douse a great spiel right there from the head coach. That has a thirteen hand record so you know what? High School here co two three games of Bob water-based. Water. About Three Games you out of their here, the thing. This is a conversation I hate when I get caught up in youtube clips and people be like damn ourselves with heart. Let me reset this. You said this is one of those Drass where I'm drafting number two I'm happy actually can whoever young pick I got that one I love Patrick Mahomes to the fullest however, I, love Lamar Jackson plus a little more Dan Patrick Mahomes let me give it to you. It lets US autos example I as he's going through this Los Angeles Community House hunting and I know his budget so it was pretty tough to get he. Got Champagne tastes. Stole money. So they can. Know what he's talking about exposed to the elements is one of the quotes I heard Ha. I, wonder who's been more injury prone in the NFL short career the one example that's not. Facts. You Know Lamar Texas only missed one game since college or what game and he's been exposed to the elements has been raining and thunderstorms, and he still is durable more durable than Patrick behold whatever that means to you guys. Let's talk about the fact that. He wants to bring statistics up when they help them but they actually heard him he said, you gotta go diving for some numbers. No, I don't. I could go to places. Let's go with easy counting numbers I wonder do I want quarterback this year does twelfth and passer rating or second don't WanNa quarterback that's twenty second in completion percentage or second don't want a quarterback twenty-seventh in passing yards per tip your favorite stat or I oh, I, think I want to first second second and that's Lamar Jackson Not Patrick Mahomes now here's the hot take I hate the do this but it could be a heartache that's. Fifty touchdowns right new years ago and had MVP season last year because injury lessened in terms of numbers and availability but he wins the super bowl even though he didn't play that well in. was. The MARCELLUS. Share any time. What on the? Miss Several. So here's the thing his numbers decreased and I give you a pass. When you go to the Super, Bowl they win he has to touchdowns to intercept seventy eight rating. That's not. But they win a superbowl. MVP. But now this year I just told you, this guy is twelve and passer rating twenty second completion percentage twenty-seventh in yards tim. Eighteenth and yards per game. There is an argument to say that we saw best Patrick Mahomes two years ago last year injury not as good and this year off to a slow start playing a Houston Texas is one of those games, jaw let's not act like they had the most formidable opponents with that set I am whispering not yelling. PATS. Is Not living up to were Patrick. Mahomes was. Two years ago. Nobody clip that off Marcellus because they're going to. They're going to going to use that clip. Okay. On Patrick mahomes highly. Has Improved. Clinton commit you to a mental. Hospital. Lamar. Jackson has every year just your honor what? Prescription. Going to say and he's GonNa close this Lamar Jackson to phenomenal quarterback we all know to debate that would be ludicrous but here's what we also know history is not on the side of Lamar Jackson NFL history thirteen qb's is rest over six hundred yards in a season of those thirteen qb's one has won a super bowl the man was Russell Wilson, but we all know the Super Bowl Russell. Wilson one he was carried to winning even Russell Wilson, would probably to a degree admit that. So the more Jackson is great but Lamar Jackson has to not only be great. Lamar Jackson also has to transcend statistical history and empirical data. I'm not worried about Lamar Jackson. Being Great. What I'm worried about is Lamar Jackson winning a super bowl. We've already seen Patrick. Mahomes do this and his third real me. Off L. Football come on come on thirty going out there the more Jackson's great. But is he great enough to win the chip because history tells us that that is a tall feet for quarterbacks that run the ball as well as he does whether it's coincidence or not whether it's coincidence or not. The data just shows. That's all I got. When I got some data. I'M GONNA kick the little bit of dirt that you left. Right there at the castle. Site I'M GONNA kick? Back onto onto the gravesite, Marcellus USA, I was three games away from getting fired as a head coach because I'm. Hundred? Big Name. Well. Here's the thing though one Lamar Jackson is Oh and two and the playoffs. So how many games ways he from losing his job and he ain't up? Are you judging him the same way you judge me because you're catching? Way You're judging me. Then we got a problem here because he has a WANNA playoff games to be considered even debatable in this conversation. One. We'll try to. Mahomes as in the play offs four and one, there's that little bit of dirt, kicked it on you and whoever wants to take us to break. y'All some facts. Either okay we know that the last two MVP's have turned out to win. The Super Bowl we'll see the third one in Lamar Jackson. We're super bowl this year, but it's been a trend of late. You Win MVP to next year you win the Super Bowl. Let's. Talk about this playoff record. Because the first year, he was thrown into the fire. He wasn't even a starter to beginning to see the save the team's. Fate and save this coaches career in terms of John Harbaugh and goes out there and loses that game playing the same team two times three weeks get next year Mark Ingram's hurt they go out there they start throwing the ball too much and he has five hundred and eight total yards in a loss but Talgo say is all on him okay. All that said. Here's. Thing. Trying to make. Like convenient excuses giving you excuse peyton manning was twenty seven before he wanted first playoff game I may. Recall down people. WHO Want a parent teacher conference right now I got a lot of case. And that was somebody else's child. You say put them in suspension but syncing your going to justify the. Let's give them another chance. They'll put them in in school suspension. peyton manning going suspension, kick them out to school, and now it's been a best you ever had in your school, but that's how you. Go, sometimes make sometimes you. All I got is this a simple last year raves led the NFL scoring five points better than the chiefs and the raiders are off to a better start this year than the chief seven points Ravens had the number two office last year, and this year they're off to a better start. I keep saying better when I say Lamar Jackson, who's already NFL MVP I keep saying worse when I talk about pets, homes and the cheese and terms of offenses statistical categories, please. This LAVAR. Grading I saw. Him and we talk a Plethora Sports. So I'm GonNa do is this track analogy for these track? Sellers love track my dog La lost track I lost track. So let's talk about it. Hundred meters the premier event of track and field. You have a few different phases get out them blocks and you got A. Little tired. But then you also have to you have to finish. Here's what we know Lamar Jackson dry phase that acceleration as more. Goals crazy. It's amazing. Maybe. He gets out the blocks and him impact. Sometimes, you look back at padlocks, hurry up, catch up the problem order, the bulk and. Dry. Phase. You say open you gotta rhyme and when that Moore's Patrick Mahomes on the Mark Jackson Open up and run Patrick Mahomes has left the mark Jackson because when the playoffs come and you gotta relax finish mahomes relaxes to foreign one. The morning accent he tightens up to to. Come and Tell you. In Seattle. Nixed. For. Yourself. He really meant to me for yourself presented by Hyundai. Let's move to Ma Guy Dak. Prescott, who signs the number of doubters who didn't think he could win and close games that four hundred, fifty yards auto, and lead the cowboys back from a twenty point deficit Acho to cap off one of the best comebacks you'll ever see in nfl I show next up for Dallas is a match up with the two and those sea hawks Red Hot Russell Wilson Lead Seok since L. Lamar back with. The deck. Have anything to prove this weekend. Everything to prove this weekend, the only thing that has ever had to prove in his life this is this weekend. I, don't care what Dacca's move in his life those far except for this weekend in this weekend, only Marcellus, you always told me that the devil is in the details, the son of a pastor, I try not to flirt with the devil often but on this show when talking about these details you've got to flirt with the devil? Prescott last year. They won eight games but again, let me tell you who they beat. The redskins, former Redskins, football team twice I beat the giants twice. They beat the lions. They'd beat the rams they beat the dolphins they beat the Eagles The Dallas cowboys actually didn't beat any playoff teams last year a second. Baby One playoff team last year, the payoff team, but they beat the Eagles and the only reason that he goes made it to the playoffs 'cause he goes beat the cowboy when it mattered most okay. Let's talk about this season stop taking to the past. So I'm not worried about the past talk to me about the president the cowboys lost the rams looking very much like a playoff team at minimum wildcard team, and then they beat the Falcons although they were down twenty nine to zero came back. Great Job Dot Prescott Great, Job Mike McCarthy your beat, the Falcons thousands going to be. A playoff team? Marcellus. What I need to see from deck is that he can show up in the big games against legitimized team's the cowboys fans deserve more than mediocrity. They deserve more than inflator stats against below average teams that Prescott if you win this game against the seahawks and play Russell Wilson I will eat all of the crow that there is to be eaten. But the fact of the matter is we just haven't seen it yet marcellus you like numbers this block I'll play your game I'll talk numbers you went to Columbia I did but I didn't get two degrees from Texas. Shutting some. Take you right. Little something. So some not much. Dad's career record against a football team. That's Washington against the giants he's thirteen and three. Cleverly, yourself that Prescott record against everybody else twenty eight and twenty two. But before I dropped this mic, Real Quick Typically Prescott against playoff teams, he's nine and fourteen but his record against everybody else he's thirty two and eleven I note that Prescott can ball. I just don't know who he can against. So we're yeah, it'll leave that press got show me ball against a legitimized super bowl team. Wow. I. Can't believe that you're going to expect to do more than what that has done, which has been tremendous since he's been in the league, but that's how they moved to go post. So no deck has nothing to prove unless you just want to see some more of the greatness. Here's the thing you make it seem like it's an out of body experience like Oh my God deck whatever you've been I need more than that more than what I am fourth all time in NFL history. And all time passer rating, but you need more. Okay that's fine I. Did it because I remember when I first got in the League and Dak Prescott, and I'm sitting there holding a clipboard for Tony Romo and I'm looking at Tony Romo while you're not going out there to play, Tony Romo. Couldn't play and took over that team and won thirteen games that year took them to the playoffs but. The first few years for deck was like, where's the team success? Okay. You got thirteen ways the first year, and then after that, where's the team's success? Get us over to we need a win another super bowl and they moved the goalposts. You see where auto get all those muscles from it's from moving these go. All the way over here to. Was On deck. burs are they winning because or a winning in spite of you in the Narrative Changed Dak Prescott you're not getting the contract because your average game manager, your mediocre and we don't. Burst and then that just goes out there says oh that's nothing. Personal record career highs and numbers almost five thousand yards passing, and then all of a sudden number, one office that people will say but now we need it all. Where's the team success stop moving the goalposts on Dak Prescott here's proven to you guys that he's already a winner. The second most wins sissies been in the League, but he has mortar prove. There are a lot of quarterbacks that are good to great. Conference do not. That Prescott it's time for me to talk back Marcellus that Prescott isn't mediocre, but that Prescott dominates mediocrity that. Dominates. Issue this Marcellus you went to. Columbia in order to go to Columbia, did you take the sat or the act or did you take both? act. Okay. Great what I want to. The SAT and the sat dictates how do on that? That is the dominating factor of how you will get into a university not how your math exam. On your biology test in ninth grade not how you scored on your Algebra exam. It's how you score on the sat that dictates your real success and where you're going to go the Seattle Seahawks, they are the sat I don't care what Dak Prescott did and his multiplication table math test in fifth grade I don't care what Dak Prescott does and his algebra exam solving for x I. Don't care about that. How are you going to do on your sat test which is good. Good. Hated this class when you be sending teaching you wrong how you keep talking when you wrong? Wrong on that one. Seattle is a test Seattle's attached. Russell roosters. But this. Week three three suggests it doesn't matter where using defecates deck. You can't give me facts of him yesterday and they get mad when they come back at you from yesterday that's the game he's already. Matter more is a matter in week three. If he loses he has so much through this seahawks team is a top team in the NFL. This is an adequate litmus test. Laughing at the top two because I don't know what they are saliva. Slow, exactly the so sliding scale. So you get a good GPA which is marcellus point. Then you don't have to scores high on those act and. Sat and act scores. So. So it is a collective body of work that goes into how you're judged in what you do. They say we'll let you in. You'll be eligible if you don't test is high on those those test your GPA, it's high. So you look at what I look at what has done and he does have a strong body of work. Thank. But the problem here is he does have to continue to. Prove. Himself this weekend based upon the fact that it's not good enough to be good. It's not good enough to even be great when you have a stall on your helmet and that's the Sen of being a Dallas cowboy he cannot just be great. He has to be great enough and what is great enough talk every single year and I had to deal with this and Washington, and it's not even. As popular in Dallas as it was in. Washington. But yet still you sell hope and those two markets, they sal super bowl or bus every single year in Dallas. So therefore, you cannot at least get close get close to one in a super bowl. What does that mean? AFC Championship game maybe that's acceptable making it to the Super Bowl that's certainly acceptable, but he has to continue to show a trajectory. That is to say we can get to the Super Bowl or won the super bowl with this guy, and it has to be a show improve, and that's why it's all about him. Continuing through that he can be that guy if he's going to justify the numbers that he's looking for contract, you will leave you know I got I. Got I gotTa Bob Thank to finally somebody could show come sorry I'm. Phone's wrong number. So wrong. I that I actually have legitimate expectation for the Dallas cowboys as I realized saw. Dallas in in one thousand, nine, hundred, I'm telling myself I'm Telhami. Eight remember what happened in Dallas and early ninety s super bowls. That's what happened. I was born in I came out where cowboys won another super bowl where all the cowboys one of those Super Bowl I was born in two super bowls in Dallas. So those are my expectations to see the cowboys not only. beat. Legitimate. Teams beat playoff teams, and win playoff games. We have not seen a lot out of that. We've not seen a lot of that out of debt Prescott and Dallas Cowboys. That is why beating the seahawks was so important I need legitimize litmus test beating legitimize opponents. Here is what the with doing because this is what the cowboys fans have been fed therefore their expectations. Cowboys, play the sea hawks. Then they play the browns, the giants, the cardinals, and the Washington football team the cowboys will do this. They'll lose to the hawks, but they'll beat the Browns oh. My God, we're great and then they'll beat the giants Oh my God we're great, and then they might lose to the cardinals beat the football team cup and they'll be sitting there at four three sitting there at at four and two, but they haven't actually beat. Anybody and that's the problem in Dallas because the expectations have been so low they started to lower their own expectations, Marcellus. Dak Prescott nine and fourteen against opponents who have made the play offs. I don't care about all those wins that you tell me about tell me about the meaningful wins again last year that Prescott One playoff team. The only reason that team was in the offs is because that team that that press got beat the Eagles beat Tack Prescott. The cowboys would have beat the Eagles again that Prescott, WanNa beat any playoff team but instead Dakhla sitting at home because he can go to Lincoln Financial Field and beat them Aligned Eagles team that Prescott is a great quarterback that Prescott is not mediocre but that got dominates mediocrity I need to see that Prescott dominate excellence in order to now consider him excellent. Okay. I know you were born in one thousand, nine hundred and I don't have any memories of my life before the age of five. So obviously by the time you were five years old they. Offered, memory. To Your the one here not so you kinda just work cognizant of them. Winning three super bowls while mom and daddy taken care of you know. Okay that's fine I. Get it but I'm not going to allow you to conflate. Put this all on deck. When you talk about meaningful wins because meaningful whiz don't just come because of the quarterback meaningful wins come because of a collaborative effort. But let's just give you one game as a microcosm one game to just show you why deck maybe doesn't win all the meaningful gangs. I. Don't know if you were in L. A. Watching them play against. The. Rams a couple of years ago playoffs was and in that game that wasn't supposed to lead this charge, it was supposed to be Zeke how does Zeke do an game? Twenty carries forty seven yards interesting. How did ally doing a game not so well, because the online has been battered bruce and right now let's be real about it. Maybe a little over hyped. And they missed did not show up then last year you keep talking about how they didn't beat anybody legitimate. How was the defense last year? Over hyped or? How Zeke last year compared to what we know normally see from Zeke's start a fast and Four. Russia. Never three to his. Office alive between injuries and kind of losing their way. Let's real about this book deck had a career year last year. I just don't like what I see the great of yesterday great quarterbacks who never won a super bowl. I'm not even GonNa go through the list 'cause you're gonNA compare back to them. All I'm saying has been too many great quarterbacks who have never wanted all who have never beat the legitimate team forward all I'm not gonNA put all of that debt, some of that Oh deck, but not all of that on dares the. Here's my bigger issue. Here is not bigger. He's don't do that. Lavar please notice what Marcellus does Dan throughout the cowboys come back and beat the Falcon Hormone my God Glad Prescott and saw his glory glory and praise be to Dak Prescott was getting spanked they get spanked but then again so the cowboys losses I mean we can't put this all along I mean come on now is he didn't do his job often the blind and do his job I mean often the line been battered and bruised whatever other be worse. When the cowboys win all praise be to deck Marcellus, this is not Burger King so you can't just haven't your way now. With the two days ago I thought our good. All right, whatever. Look. Let me say this though let me say every during DAX tenure as the head coach they have only had one five, hundred season. They've won all the way through Komo. So it was good enough the justification the justification of paying Zeke Elliott is present, right? Then, then why hasn't it been present for Dak Prescott because you can't come up with you Know the thing about this is a good question. This is a great topic. It is unequivocally clear that Zeke is a top by rusher like there's no debating that we don't sit here on this show us he taught five Zeke. No, we sit here and we go we. Start. Start. Now. He's talked for Russia Russia. took. To the contract and most Whiz Dak Prescott in the same draft were Uruguay Carson Wentz has now being under five hundred last year with. New. Not about money. It's about respect. You if he's already earned next if you to dinner by on dating. Back to speak for yourself for then about Honda Continent Talk About Cam Newton. Patriots look like geniuses resigning him this off season Cam has five total touchdowns and he leads the team in rushing who wrestled pad man. Mama. All all playing on a one year deal with the base salary of just over one billion. Many camps are gonNA huge payday next season but that's not concern. Let's take a listen. You must understand that is literally the last. Of My worries money at this particular point amok, career is not important. Like and let's be honest made money. you know but for everything that I play this game for I haven't received. That's why I'm playing. So it's not about money. It's about respect. Yeah money isn't everything. Oxygen. Off. This Is Caroline luck to cam already earned his respect. The earned his respect back. Yeah. Because he bet on himself and so far. Everyone asked eat crow that bet against him. Yes. He's earned his respect back but I'm not even GONNA push too far down the lane of what Cam was talking about. I just want to talk about this respect and ultimate respect that he's chasing and he's not chasing the don't necessarily. I gotTa talk to people because this sounds like he's using respect as a paper tiger as they call it, which is like, Oh, I'm used this as something that I'm chasing because really what I want I can't necessarily claim or state. Ultimate respect is the DOE dammit like getting paid is the ultimate we're expect. When you haven't earned it yet, you don't feel fully respect this. So what's the currency of respect besides currency? There is none and Cam Newton is caught up in this position right now because the only buyer to only taker of his services are the Patriots. So he can't sit there and really distant because they're not even paying them but ton but you gotta be real about it when it talks to the scoreboard of respect isn't really a nod from the homeys isn't the Dat through approval or? Is. It going to display itself on that score board by how much they pay for your services so I'm not buying into the paper tiger of Ood, you know what I want everyone respect because I'm gonNa tell you right now when I played and now when I'm talking I don't give a damn. If you respect me I won't that check respect I know even know how to cash ever. SPEC everywhere I go people know I'm a clipper lover told me liquor hater and today see me they've been. Clippers suck selfie. Case you wrong about deck selfie. Where cash respect, there's no place in this world, you cash it in, but you cash in that, dope? Cam Stay focused, get show money br I feel you marcel I do but I guess this doesn't Cam Newton's pat isn't what Cam Newton wants. He said he's one twenty million during his nine seasons that's just on the football field alone. So camera saying I'm coming for my respect well then what is respect? What is respect? A feeling of deep admiration for someone or something elicited by their abilities qualities achievements can lost his respect when he lost his ability or so we thought cameras NATO star coming into this season. His last eight Games Cam Newton I WANNA start says twenty eighteen outdoor November. So when we thought he lost his ability he lost his respect. He got him respect back and he got back Sunday night because everyone knows he has his ability back three hundred ninety seven yards through the air to yards away from beating the seahawks NC adult third-highest passing garden game of Cam. Newton's career to then week one tenth highest rushing yards a game of his career one. So respect us back because his ability is back K. understand you made your money now keep making Your money. But if you correlate respect with reverence, if you correlate respect with how people fear you people fear Cam Newton again, maybe not the defensive lineman maybe not US opinion is but defensive coordinators are now looking at Cam Newton and say, okay, this dude can run the ball fifteen times for seventy five yards. He can pass the ball for four hundred yards, Thurs maybe to other quarterbacks in the league they can do that and cameras one of them, and so cam has earned his respect. Now he gotTa let the respect turn into check that you can cash. Disagree with you Marcellus I'm on along your lines a lot and listen. I. GotTa Say I have a different perspective on his. It's interesting I shared this all my social. King of the mammals about away on A. Motorcycle. Wreck the motorcycle when I retire and and the reason why I was on that motorcycle to begin with is because I was chasing that Adrenalin rush of what it felt like to play the game. Then I didn't realize what I was through mentally and emotionally until much further away from and removed from my career. I was great from Grade. School on I was the best rated football player in peewee league. That was the best player coming out is was the best rated player coming out of out of college and pro career as a pro. I want it respect like chess is fine. I like cash. But when when you talk to me, I, don't want you to respect the fact that I made a lot of money. I want you to respect my passion that went to the game I, want you to respect my dedication. Maybe it's not tangible thing that you can check out at a bank but do I want to be recognized for how hard our work I want to be recognized for how I compete it? Absolutely there are some things that money cannot buy happiness moral respect is not one of the things that you can buy what my people can fake love. People give fake respect, but you can earn it on the field. So I totally felt where Cam was coming from and you know what? That's driving motivating factor when I was growing out looking at the people I looked up to Greg Lloyd, and all of those guys it was about respect to those guys. It wasn't about anything else other than the love and respect that went into plan is game I relate to that, and so I agree with cameras and yes, he's got his respect back but I don't think he's got his respect for himself back until he can host that that Lombardi trophy. I think that's his motivating factor. Man I don't WanNa sound heartless but disagree with every syllable, you just stated right there. Brother but you know what is interesting? Life's a sandwich. No matter how you flip it. The brand comes first. Okay. Here we go. You know mayonnaise but he's nobody. Here's. Chou said that he lost his ability. So he lost his respect, but he really didn't lose its ability. He lost his opportunity to display that ability to his fullness. So what happens here's a different take people perceive you can't do something they're looking at you lesser than you work cam at full capabilities six into that year scamming capabilities head is highest. Completion percentage ever. But then when he was compromised, he all sudden started to redefine who we thought. He was same mistake you Lavar talking about what you want is respect i. don't want respect because we're spectators defined by others what they think of you. If you lose your way, you lose your self esteem and all of sudden is defined by others as. Suspect. Is that the you were never just a football player, but somehow some way correct you bought it. You you. So you got sold on U. Internalized it. Can flayed on that. because. You have certainly changed the point. You can have self respect you can seek the respect that. So if you're already feeling they're seeking self respect. Then how did you get to a situation where you needed to be defined and given to you from? that. Doesn't have to be defined by others just like it doesn't have to be defined by money. Also happy. Issue Lavar, you also said happiness happiness has nothing to do with external circumstances happiness that has to do with. Internal exactly. The same point making the same point. Good making the same. Hunting. Money doesn't moved by the way. Let yourself off easy if you buy. Money doesn't buy that I'm not talking about the money I'm saying look at something for services. Then my money is going to be the ultimate respect you could pay everything else comes from within. So when you get caught up in a situation where you're defining yourself as a football player, you should've learned long time ago that you're not. You're just a guy playing foot ball coming up in our big story Lebron showed up last night but most of his teammates didn't we'll tell you. Have enough to close out the nuggets next BC yourself to sit about. Honda. Monkey. Want to speak for yourself. Marceau's while they backward, Emmanuel. Show. So credit to your icy stop our big stories sponsored by Jimmy. Dean's. Today's your data. Sean let's return to the Lakers who dropped game three, two the nuggets last night behind Jamal Murray's twenty eight point broad James Anthony Davis combined for fifty seven points which have normally worked in the bubble la six and two in the playoffs when they combined for fifty plus points. But the rest of the latest work M a White Howard you bill Magee combined for only two rebounds in the loss. Worry the brunt ad don't have enough help out the nugget I'm not worried at all that they don't have enough help because if we're being real Lebron a D, don't necessarily need help to close out the nuggets. Let me speaking to you like this I believe are fourteen fifteen in one when Lebron a D. combined for over sixty points. When boys get sixty points, they don't lose games when they get over. Fifty five points the twenty five and five meaning of every six games. Lose one that was the one. That again, if Lebron continue to combine for over fifty five points, they're going to roll. They don't need a ton of help. Here is what they need over the next two out of the next however, many games. The Lakers feel like entertaining the series coups MMA or Rondo or Morris or KCPT. Just one all go off what we all need for. You ought to go off with just one of y'all go y'all pit four, zero y'all. Elbow, and so I don't think the Lakers need a ton of help remember ad didn't help himself. He didn't have no boards through three quarters to boards whole game that isn't helping yourself. So I would be more worried if we weren't talking about two of the top five players in the NBA The fact that a matter is we are and when it comes down to it either game five. Game Four game six is GonNa come down a joke the joker in Murray better than ad and the king and a the king or forever right now at least I mean I say forever. But for the imminent future, better than a joker Murray, they don't really need help yet. They I would be worried if I were a Laker fan I'll be worried if I were on Laker squad because what you're talking about is absolutely correct in terms of their dual being degraded. But now if you look at them, they're a duo and others versus eighteen and NASA problem coach to always say a closed fist will beat those fingers spread and that's what the Lakers are like two together and three playing somewhere sideways, and you're hoping and counting who's the other one's GonNa. BE, crucial. is going to be who is going to every single night. Every coach I've ever play for gave a game plan at every coach always highlighted one of the best attributes, all of his players reliability. Absolutely. Well, I I don't even care if you're a great I, even care for good he his Biran lobby. So I can know him when I'm composing this gay plan physics who are, and if you look at the Lakers in the fourth quarters, the tool wins for the Lakers. They were outscored in those same fourth quarters. Let's look at these. Lakers and crunch. Paul screen. King time most fourth quarter minutes versus the nuggets. You don't necessarily want to see this your oldest guy, the one of the two in the duo is putting in most minutes and then look who's right behind him Caruso Kusaba Davis then, Rondo if you look at this disjointed and light up the guys who are finishing the game, not even the guard starting a game, let's start talking about going against a team with a closed fist. They go out there with their starters they're gonNA close with those guys. All over the place got to be careful closing with guys. You don't start with because chemistry will be affected. GotTa bring in our Guy Fawkes NBA analyst Slick Rick Dubuque. Quick settle this for us or you worry Lebron ad don't have enough help close out the nuggets. No I'm not worried about the help I'm not worried about Kyle Kuzma and Alice Caruso being the Western Conference finals and not consistently giving you picked performances considering they've never been in the playoffs before I'm not worried that an almost thirty five year old Rajon Rondo who is a career? Thirty percent thirty, three, percent three, point shooter can't hit a big shot in the western conference final. What I'm worried about is that their so called to stars don't show up or have not showed up at winning time crunch time in these two close games, which just happened to be the two closest games that they've played in the final so far if you look at the numbers for Lebron, we know what he did in the last five minutes in game two was. Three turnovers. Three missed shots, an air ball three no points zero points. Zero Assists Anthony Davis obviously went off in that. pull it out but in this game. Last Night Anthony Davis lasts five minutes didn't even take a shot never mind assist or anything else and Lebron James? I got him one for three with one turnover in one assist meanwhile on the other side of the equation. In Game Two. Yokich scores the last eleven points for the nuggets and Jamal Murray assists onto of those buckets and then in game three Jamal Murray gives you six points and a sweet dime and ninety second spurt in the final two and a half minutes that basically ice the game I am seeing the nuggets star step up when the game needs to be one in these type games and I am not seeing it from the Lakers stars. So. This is what I absolutely hate this. We look at the overall numbers that we say, well, Lebron, James, and Anthony Davis or top five players and doing their job. Your job is to bring that home I'm not looking for the complementary players to make the big shots at the end of the game I don't care what the final numbers are when it comes down to a close contest my stars need to bring it home and that For the most part has not the case with the Lakers and that's what I would be most worried about the only things like honestly that I'm worried about is if it turns into a track meet young legs going that's the that's my only concern like you heard Murray at the end of the Game I. Don't know if you'll watch the post game quotas sooner that was over I always wash the quotes at the end of the game. because. That's where you really hear what you need to hear from these players. The to authenticity Mario says Oh this turns into a race or the younger teams. So I said, maybe he just talk and let me look it up. He's right on average. The Lakers starting lineup is roughly four years older than the nuggets target lineup. Now you might think that's not a big deal until you saw at the end of the game ad was cast remember. Lebron dive for that loose ball and look it took him forever to get up and he was like man if somebody gave me a pillow and a blanket lease. So I'm not so much concerned about the help what I'm concerned about is like man I don't know if if the legs will tire if this series continues to go longer. So like like we said before the Brandon ad, they just can't afford to play with their food. Yes. If you look the stat line, the Bron- ball technically, if you look at the stat line, a gave you twenty seven points but you gotta have more than one assist. You gotTa have more than two rebound you're the most athletic player. And the court on the court probably the most athletic player left in the finals in you're talking eastern and Western Conference. So ad has to give you more. It's not enough to just twenty seven points is crunch time ads to have a crunch time performance. The thing that fascinates me is that the Lakers really are an outline hung the four remaining teams. The other three are young and deep and versatile and I'm watching Danny Green trying to chase around Jamal Murray Jamal. Got Anything he wanted to figure it out Alex. Caruso so yeah, the the the Lakers are a front running team they need to get out and play fast early and get a lead. There are completely different team when it comes possession by possession game or it becomes a close game because I haven't seen consistently under pressure ad and Lebron work together well in the way that I've seen to mall and Yokich, and here's the other thing that I take from take from the post gangs. When a hit the big shot and obviously biggest shot of his career meaningful. But the fact of the matter is they should have never been in that position. They should have been angry Lakers team and it's gained two and there should have been an idea. There's been an approach of, hey, we should we eat it out. Almost a dissatisfaction. AD acted as if this was the coronation and meanwhile Jamal Murray talks about the game and it's like, yeah, we did the next thing there was no, you got the little Shimmy on the back but there was no celebration to the level of the Lakers and I would expect to be the exact reverse that the Denver Nuggets that would be the ones just thrill to pick up the game after losing the first. Two and it wasn't the whole attitude in the post game I think is also revealing yes. Interesting. All things equal. We know is a young man's game like when you just if you could balance out the scales and we're talking about eighteen versus the duo in carousel of others that's different when you talk about how they're going to match up and how they're going to work together efficiently and buy into each other. Allies cruise getting the second most minutes and crunch time I know as CRUSOE has shown to be a surprise for the Lakers and certainly works well Lebron but that's not the winning formula guest a tight unit like the Denver, nuggets. So when you come into a game three and you dodged a bullet literally on the Whiteboard said dodged a bullet you have heightened sense of awareness. I. Don't know if you've ever been shot I have multiple times guess what anytime around that place again. You just fill your hair stand up just in fear they walked on the court kind of like Oh we the Lakers here's our uniforms. We got this problem right there. So in a situation when it's a young man's game. Grew up when you're the youngest, you always got to get the remote for Daddy. Daddy and my house now my little son M J he knows what time it is. Go Daddy that remote. Coming up father time is knocking on the door and Tampa. Tail you if we're disappointed in Tom Brady after we to necks speak for yourself that he never move them back to speak for yourself. Let's talk about Tom Brady? WHO's moved to Tampa was met with a lot of height so far it hasn't been seen on the field greatest bucks or one in one already have more turnovers and touchdowns and twenty six league in passing yards. Brady said it's going to take the bus time adding quote or going to be building all season. So marcellus big bro You disappointing and Brady after the first two game, not at all, not at all this is a work in progress you gotta respect that this is going to take time for them to come together for Tom Brady to get acclimated now in his new surroundings his. New Staff, but his new teammates, and if you look at this situation from a whole, you can't go out there and have an issue with the process when the goat is the one running net processor who else NFL history knows better from start to finish how you have to approach your work, how you have to go out there, and even if someone is feeling good that day. You gotTa say, yeah, that's good. But that's not great how you have to motivate others how you have to figure out which buttons to push. So Tom Brady is in a situation right now despite all of his individual numbers, he's still learning on the fly despite all that he's one in one the same menu to keep blowing up a phone every night testing me all the time. Who raves about Oh God the Patriots. are still at one and one, but you love them it's all about your connotation is all how you want to spin it. But at the way I'm looking at it. Tom, Brady is in a conference where you should fear no one in division. You should fear no one and then he's playing a game of chess that's going to be slow played but he'll be there thin big big Bro Brom completely disappointed in Tom Brady performance thus far has been pedestrian. BEEN PEDESTRIAN I mean I'm not even going to offer too much just words because they can be superfluous meaningless. So let's just talk numbers and talk about how he's going in the wrong direction over the last four seasons pools screen prints please. Think about it from two, thousand, seventeen, two, thousand, eighteen, thousand, nine, hundred, twenty, twenty, his passing yards consistently on the decline because passing touchdowns on the decline in their on pace to can stay on the decline his yards per attempt on the decline, his passer rating on the decline every meaningful statistics and Marcellus I didn't have to go searching long and wide. And High and low forties statistics every meaningful statistics that is found on the surface that us to quantify a quarterback outside of wins because obviously that matters a lot and he's sitting at one and one. Every meaningful statistics says Tom Brady is on the decline the we don't need that anymore. Let me look do help yourself out if Tom Brady went to. Tampa Bay to partner up with the quarterback whisperer, he went to Tampa Bay to partner with the qb Guru who supposed to inflate inflate your positive numbers. Where's the inflation he went to Tampa Bay Department with Bruce Arians. Bruce Arians has worked with Peyton manning work with Ben Rosberg work with Andrew Luck is work with Carson Palmer Jameis Winston yes. All those. quarterbacks experience ties in turnovers under Bruce Arians. But what I didn't tell you last week all those quarterbacks experienced ties as far as passing yardage and touchdowns under Bruce Arians as well. I'm waiting for Tom. Brady to show me too highs Tom Brady just partnered up with the best quarterback, the best coach Bruce Arians when it comes to inflating quarterback statistics yet. There still deflated listen to yourself. You got no got full screen prints. Everything is going well for you but you just said you just hooked up with. You just. You two weeks of football with Bruce Areas, you expect it all to happen overnight. It's got a lot of microwaves and your house not just one. You got a lot of microbes I got others multiple of is sometimes it got a slow baking big dog if you really wanted to taste right who is leading the league in most drops this year is it Tampa Bay is it Tom Brady Tom, Brady's receivers who has a headline that reads dropped. Passes Cost Tom Brady of four hundred yard game by the numbers is Bruce Ayers and Tom Brady Bruce and say, Hey, y'all don't start catching the football drop three touchdowns not one not two three styles week to alone and you over here I'll disappointed Tom Brady like Zell said he can't about Eric Cantor damage. So I understand why you so hypercritical the reason I'm hypercritical because we're talking about a guy who's been hyper successful we're talking about go. We were talking about Nick Foles Marcellus. Okay. Back when you're talking about somebody who's supposed to be immensely talented I would hope it would click quicker than sooner I came on two and a half months ago you said it yourself I'm not going to Horn but you said we clicked instantly I would like to think that's because you're talented I'm talented it works now if we were so talented SCO, scoot into this show and we have struggled early on. But when you're talking about the greatest of all time, he knows every football language regardless of the plays and whatnot he can translate that into his own speech. Why are you making excuses? Brady hasn't even made excuses for himself, but she was up here making excuses for the goat. He's the goat I just WANNA see goat type performances I also when someone's trend in the wrong direction auto jump cell phone, right? Because you just said that about Tom Brady how come you're not jumping Patrick mahomes arguing me for twenty minutes about pets he's trending in the wrong direction hitters, the individual numbers twenty, seven yard Atip twenty-second complete all I'm saying if you're going to. Look at Tom Brady, had two weeks. Trending in the wrong direction, you need to look at the few years sample size of your guy. Patrick. Mahomes. Up You've heard of keeping one on it well, when coaches and athletes can't be totally honest, they actually keep a nanny nine. We'll explain this just. Got The past. Welcome back speak for yourself time to keep it not and nine when coaches an athletes can't keep it. One hundred. Give you an answer that isn't totally honest or truthful. You listen to the sound bites we'll translate plus get it rolling with Doug Peterson head coach for the Philadelphia Eagles when he was asked about Carson Wentz, this early season struggles. In Carson's fifth year in the League and fifth year working with you why are you seeing is production and his performance regrets. Progress. Green Rest regress. Oh I'm sorry I I did cut out there You know it's a good question you know for us it's a matter of continuing to work continuing. Wow, you know. I. Think I. Think as coaches and players we continue to strive to get better every single day you know I just don't want Carson to feel like he has to make all the plays every single time. I know you have to keep it ninety nine. Hundred you would've said progress and I'm hoping you said progress because I don't WanNa have to quarterback. Breath, he calls me the first two games. And went singlehandedly is the reason we owe into and we lost Washington football team. They don't even have a name we just got blown out. By the Rams, we were going to take the lead I'll call the play. Baltic Carson Winston to cornerback to undercut it doing it in a sentence we've got to take the lead. Carson wentz regret but. Pro Pro. Breast Oh. Man Remember we did this show about the five size of someone lying. You just saw six size right there. He you one extra one, God he was light through his deep. Well, here's Tom Brady. When asked what changed from their week one loss to the saints and a win over the panthers Sunday. Execution was a little bit better I think we still are long ways from we need to be so. It was Oh we have the ability to make plays I think consistency dependability are going to be things that we really need so. guide you back to work and clock's ticking on next week so. Good. I give folks on next week's game and try to be loved. Their next week is awesome. Elbows locked out like that. He lied to Steve. Here's somebody saying, Oh, a little bit better just takes me back home with my little kids. My little man is trying his best to do some art right now trying to color within the lies. He's like this. A little bit better than the last time. But you. Keep working on it because I know high supposed to look and I know what I'm seeing right now he's on a T. right now that is climbing the mountain, but they're closer to the base of that mountain. Then to apex look sometimes got to use a lot of words to keep it ninety nine but head coach for the Vikings Mike Zimmer. He ain't really even say all that much his team's owing to take. Yeah I don't know Joe You know. I've been telling them until we can't stop went start winning until we stop losing. Kiva Ninety nine for Marcellus. He was keeping it a hundred. He would've said I've been telling them. We saw is heck. Seen worse football played in my life we lost twenty eight to eleven to two colts and kirk cousins, Motte quarterback kirk cousins hundred thirteen yards and three interceptions. We pay that man how much. We don't deserve this. We deserve better I. Feel You Mike Zimmer Keep it one hundred next time. You're going to have you talked about my former coach Mike Zimmer. He kept it a hunter. You just wanted to go into the but. Let's go to somebody who keeps them hundred. Here's Bill Belichick when asked if he's paid attention to was former quarterback, Tom Brady this season. I really been focused on the teams were planning Lou Miami was obviously a big focus for Seattle. kind of got her hands full with taking care of the things we gotta take care. I. Don't watch a lot of other programs I. Don't Really Watch a lot of college games I'll watch the games affect what we do. We to keep it ninety nine billy kept. If he were keeping it hunted know what he would say thing mumbling. I'll give a damn nineties players when a here are certainly when they gown, you wouldn't ask them I talked to Richard Seymour we'll ask them I thought salar Jimmy Garoppolo, who is that? Don't. Let alone when they're gone but in all seriousness. You don't even know other teams players. When you play a they're stars you're watching the film out. So you like, yeah, who's sixty eight who sixty eight or worse on your own team picture somebody says, who's that guy number sixty? Man was his name. You know what I'm talking about here guard he back of North Dakota state like we even know all of our teammates. So you don't know your opponent you'll know your teammates all the time and bill belichick keeping it not a nine is basically saying y'all looking on keep it A. Damn none of these dudes coming up Don grundig Sean Payton were the latest coaches to be fine for not wearing masks on the sidelines we'll give you are reacting next. John Guman Sean Payton were currently find a hundred thousand dollars eight not wearing masks the entire time on the sidelines Monday Jordan Kyle Shanahan rock band Pete Care violated the rule on Sunday Carol agreed with the rule saying quote sometimes you gotTa get coached up. Marcellus reacted these NFL coaches being fined for not wearing Matt Yeah one point seven, million dollars in fines for these coaches in these they my reactionist. Applause Mark You know why? Because the memo was sent because you knew that we needed you to stay disciplined stay with US S. Commissioner Goodell says you can't let up like we know what our commitment has to be. You know why? Because billions of dollars are at stake for thousands of individuals and you cannot give the impression that you're not protecting the shield 'cause you're not trying to protect your players are protected environment. So I. Applaud a man gave you the warning you violate it you gotta a call I can't applaud them, but I'll give them some little dog snaps looking some stuff. Here's my problem ourselves own. My problem is exactly what you said. You said billions of dollars state my the tough dichotomy for me. Is it third hundreds of millions of dollars take for these coaches for these players you're trying to make the playoffs you're trying to win games. warned the Mike and my headset as the middle linebacker middle linebacker guests plays from the sideline coach. West Role, West Road of where we'RE GONNA run. What's wrong if you hear something different. And you call some different who thought your right arm up and steady left arm don't end up bringing the pressure from the left instead of wall a sudden touchdown give up and you lose a game and now you you're not in the playoff I understand like you have to follow the rules I get that but it's a tough dichotomy, which is what I'm wrestling with right now. I'm day one pandemic and I'm not wrestling with this but my group text, my best friends, everyone they all starting to leak. What you're doing Saturday, say the idea last Saturday for the last six months like what the? Hell. I'm at the Ritz Carlton Doing, I, am not going anywhere I am day-one pandemic Goodell it. We've got to consistently do things that got us here. We have too much at stake, but you know what these coaches defy violators. Cloth masks look like Andy Reid visor do whatever you have to do you aware advisor I can hear you. Glenn let's talk about this. Then let's talk about this because I got a problem at least a little bit of a problem a hundred thousand dollars much tomorrow. Real hundred thousand one, hundred stacks, his thing Marceau you're finding him one, hundred thousand dollars because they can afford it. They can afford it based on their monetary place in society. If you walk into a store and says, you gotTa wear masks and you're not wearing your mask, you're not gonNA get slapped with one hundred, thousand dollar fine. You ever not because of your finances based on your place in society if the NFL is going to acknowledge okay we hit him four lick because we know they're making extensive amounts of money. Then I just feel like you. Also, have to assess while they're making a lot of money because they're in these high pressure situations they're in these high pressure situations because there is a lot at stake because there's a lot at stake that's why every now and then Rover Rover Blue Nine hundred ninety. So that's why I'm just torn on the whole issue lane one, hundred, thousand dollars. I'm just not going to act like this chump change. Well, if you're torn on that, let me rip it more to Sh- raise you know why you walk into rows and if you don't have your visor. Can you please leave that's it because you don't worry arouse. Work their route. They'd be looking at that check whatever you make they're going to try and slice it. Here's the thing it has to be excessive because it has to be a deterrent. You GotTa send a message to all of the other head coaches out there any other violators we not come into play we come and deepen your pockets matter of fact, hands if Bo pockets. I was as I was fined one time in my ten year career nineteen, Ninety, eight, a head shot to pay many hit him in the neck area. Yeah. My bad and I know you had the surgery later. So I had something to do with that ten thousand dollars which at that time was a lot which at that time it wasn't like a vicious hit but they had to send a message ripped open the Fed exit you been five. If it said one hundred, I'd like to hear them again. But when I saw ten thousand, I started to think all my. Cousins and uncles. took. Off dignified as. Because I, know they still need. And I gotTA give up ten, thousand, two NFL charity. So it has to be does the punishment fit the crime? Yes it does because think about it. If we compromise this work environment right now you know what they say upstairs to us Bra it's beyond just indiscretion. It's the imagery is the fact that we if we as ambassadors look like we don't care you know what most people are assuming about everyone else in the facilities everyone else in that vicinity they're starting to think, hey, hey, ain't tripping over there in NFL too much is at stake for you to be out there lax with the rules coming up professor uncle Jimmy Vasser when they give. Chaudhry. Oh Lord you don't WanNa Miss. This. Nostril down is. And before we go four I. got to put up bringing uncle Jimmy what letter grade would you give today? Show all go Jimmy. You.

Cowboys Season Preview, Will Giannis Leave Milwaukee, Lakers Win Game 3

"And welcome to speak for yourself presented by day with you for the next two hour. So let's go Marcellus Wiley here. So, you. Don't hide to watch behind the computer is. A little. So I had to change it up with how to change the goal tie bar this. Ladies and gentlemen. It's the subtleties that make something great like this shows about the B. R. C.. You don't over go over there right now let's get started. In Dallas, cowboys are coming up at eight eight season. They missed the playoffs the man you wouldn't know it. Ezekiel Elliott say recently, this is the most talented team he's been on while Mike McCarthy said quote. We're in this to win a championship, make no bones about it that press daas mine appears to be on the president saying quote I seized the moment I've focused on the now i. think it's very important for me to do exactly that and not be distracted or put too much focus anywhere other than what it is that I'm doing now my fire is burning. Fire is You can throw whatever you want in there for it to burn for it to get bigger I'll tell cowboys doing too much talking here. Man Them Cowboys do little too much. Turpin Marcellus doing too much sharpen because. To their credit to Jerry Jones credit. Let me built him I. Guess He has built an empire not necessarily on the field, but he's built an empire as far as the cowboys brand for two years two, thousand, sixteen, two, thousand, seventeen, I worked in Dallas. I worked for the cowboys in that media department I worked at the start you walk into the star Marcellus, one cowboys way Frisco Texas and you walk into the star million dollars of chandeliers who have replicas or the actual super bowl trophy sitting near all of it and you see the bill see the height but the problem is the cowboys have been living off of hype since I was born three years after I was born. Into the glory days that was born again I had. Myth poster in my room, and it's still had holes in it because it got jammed into my locker growing up. So I'M GONNA lead to no, it was real all in but since then Marcellus the last twenty four years cowboys haven't been to a super bowl haven't been to an NFC championship game. So if we're being gone is and I hate to say it but the cowboys have really been impostors and they've been impostors because the expectations are so high and why are I so high because each and every year Jerry and Steven Jones they sell us on how good the franchise is GonNa be and I buy it not by the hype I believe the heighten and then The players, Zeke deck, they're selling us on dreams and I'm buying it Marcel Samba leaving height, and then the roster it sells us on delory. Star after star receiver. One of the best offensive lines even know I l collins is hurting now you got a quarterback who the top five pastor as far as yardage, and so you believe the hype. But then if the devil's in the details, the cowboys only have three meaningful wins in the last two decades. Three playoff with that is a problem Selah so yes, they're doing too much turpin because they're not doing enough winning. They're not doing too much chirpin. Doing too much talking sir. What's you're doing and you're trying to really show it is having buyer's remorse because you keep buying. You know a man auto takes thirty seconds of clips that were spread out over three for months. They can't stop talking about. Good. Okay. Wow. What a classic case of selective perception by show and I think he will fall into that five meetings suck. In psychology. You're out of towner and I live here. Now Lebron raise I've seen the stars from. Third. Grade Right. Outta town that comes from Austin Texas how you think comes to La just off the airplane drives through in his cab gets to his hotel and causes friend Oh. My God la is crazy. Everyone has a Mercedes everyone's rich out here they do. Yes. They traded Bentley's Rolls Royce while I was wrong bike this morning and you just forgot to look at auto cameras all the centrist a couple of. Their more does actually out here but that's my point. Have, you ever been a Dallas Cowboy? No, you have. You been in there. You are working for the cowboys, but you don't know how it feels to be on the varsity. Squad. Talk to me it wasn't a good experience for me but I know what the stars through feels like and let me tell you JV team because that's what university. Of Texas is the J. of of Texas. Houston got these shots. Myself. South. Felt clean. When you're at Davies, you don't understand how you're inundated how your flooded with national attention on the daily. The beat writers in Dallas are in the dozens in comparison to other NFL teams. People always say well, you make an NFL new variety of Oh. No once you become a Dallas Cowboy you've arrived let me tell you about this experience and how it translates around the NFL you keep talking about the Dallas cowboys, chirp chirp interpret. WanNa bears in Allen. Robinson comes out says we want to win a super bowl and that's the main thing we're I show in and his selective perception. What about what Ryan Pace GM bears comes up I really feel like we got we can excel this season. Our expectations are championship expectations. Where's The a block off choke? Where's this everyone in La has been? That's the problem brother you. Are Doing with the Dallas cowboys no you will do which is look at them and make it bigger than it is you are part of the problem I. Am you Marcellus Wiley are part of the pro? You are the problem actually you just sat here and you told me and you made the comparison out of your own mouth that the cowboys are varsity right? If the cowboys the cowboys. Are Bar said yes. Varsity expectations. But how come the cowboys only have two more playoff appearances on the browns in the last twenty? The cowboys are more study. Then where's the Varsity? No Star Star not to Go in. And start writing notes who's going to need everything else up there get every bit of ink out of that Pan because I'm about to go last twenty seasons giants they've been to three super bowls they've won to last twenty seasons eagles not only tape to two super bowls they went to six conference championships. Cowboys what have they given us in the last twenty season the only other teams. In the NFC that happened been where the cowboys are trying to go are the lions. And some other terrible team that slipping my mind, right? So you sir are actually the problem because people like you say, the cowboys are Varsity people like you say, the cowboys are the gold standard of people like you perpetuate the cowboys are America's team. While the cowboys are great list. They embody that because Jerry Jones has done with that brand and what Jerry Jones has done with that team, the cowboys and had their expectations. Let us down every year that Prescott what was he last year? He was eight nate but that Prescott was one in six verse playoff teams along was like Andy Dalton Derek Carr James Winston two quarterbacks currently backups but Dak Prescott. Highest quarterback let Marcellus tell it The problem at hand here is you continue to build up these cowboys I continue to buy into the hype that their Varsity Varsity. I want them to be worse than the I was born in Dallas, I live twenty minutes away from Cowboys Stadium at eighteen minutes away from the Star I'm smack DAB in Dallas not a suburb I had the Emmett Smith poster, but it's time for me to stop. Buying into the hype and stop listening to these cowboys players because they're doing too much talking like you just finished doing. Wow this amazing that the cowboys are guilty of doing with every single team. NFL does an off season, which is wind off season and the cowboys do it all the sudden you take it and make a grander in it is because they're the cowboys you're putting more shy on. And you know what I it's amazing to me that I'm working with such a youngster because that's a that's a testament to how great you are how fast you hit the ground running twenty nine years old right and right now when it comes to historical data I, notice you say a lot in the last twenty years to last twenty years. Maybe. Longer though to. The cowboys have been. Let's talk about the cowboys when Jerry Jones I purchased them worte one in fifteen. And then you like to go pass those three championships they want and those four years you go past that but I don't because I'm not gonNA, just suffer from recently bias and only look you twenty four years of the recent, and then here's a long time is still under the same ownership watch you gotta give Jerry Jones has four credit all. You can't say outside of those three Super Bowl Fair because Dallas cowboys sitting there with the third most amount of championships in history we know there behind the Patriots and behind the steelers. So when you talk about this Varsity, make sure you respect them in fool in this. Now this you'll LASCA years I have a couple of issues with what you're saying because what actually was the operative factor in the success of the cowboys wasn't Jerry Jones or Jimmy Johnson because one of them left and sewed the Super Bowl. Through that. taught. Me Not to do. With a win a championship. You don't want. He's got one probably have let's let's get back to the point because here's my here's my real issue with with what you're saying. You told me yesterday and told me today my problem America that I listened to Marcellus Wiley 'cause what Marcellus told me no one cares what you're doing until. You're not doing what just a to be doing Marcellus you told me that. So nobody cares Jerry Bills Jerry were. At and T. Stadium nobody cares that you have a one point three million dollar facility you got what? Three, thousand, two, hundred, fifty, two wins televisions in this ADM nobody cares it. You walk into practice facility Sir and you have a million dollars in chandeliers. You have the last windows all in this practice facility and you land your helicopter there and everybody knows that Jerry Jones has arrive when Jerry chapter shows up and pulls on the graph I'm telling you. I've been there were there every day through nobody cares what you're doing until you're not doing what you're supposed to be doing Jerry Jones you're doing so much extra stuff. You've got a radio show every week you'll be on. These. Other GM's don't marcel this Brown's GM's rows because they don't, but Jerry does but the problem is jerry the one thing you post to be doing. Winning super bowls you not doing. So yes, Marcellus now care about everything else to Jerry's doing because he's not doing what other organizations are doing Ryan pace the bears DM. He's not sitting here on different talk each and every day he's not sitting down with star reporters for star networks coming off of his yacht in La with his glasses on sitting down with all the Glamour Ryan Pace than doing that Jerry. Jones. Is Doing that how many Ryan? Pace? Has. Significantly. Buddy half one with the same. Thing. With him in the last ten years ago. Yeah. What Jerry got three times? Lift you talking there's a double bottom line I know you took a business course. Psychology. And everything else you just write a double bottom line. They say, you gotTa do well and do good. Right Jerry has done well for himself. What is the Dallas cowboys ranks in terms of financial worth number one I would assume. Assume they're number one. Okay. So He's done well now let's talk about doing good and usually that's an a charity scope. Well, let's just talk about doing good be good at your job. Jerry's has three trophies of equity that somehow some way you lost picture of because all you WanNa talk about isn't last year more Marcellus I haven't lost picture. My problem is so in the hall of fame, but how PACE LADIES AND GENTLEMEN Can you rest on your laurels of Old Marcella? How long are you going to keep telling me oh? No hit Marcellus and twenty years back. We're back in Monterey Young? Show. Back Monday we're remember Jerry. Jones in one about two or three titles back in the early nineteen come on more sellers. Have you done for me lately? You know you sound like new money but almo money over here I'm generational wealth UC the flash you don't see it all the time but trust me don't ever test because there you're paying attention to the cowboys and you're trying to make it seem like they're trying to seek attention. There's a big difference. You ever seen that you ever seen that play out you ever seen that tiffany Cambridge I'm always talking about tiffany Cambridge great beautiful person ever saw him but is good law. tiffany would just walk in class, but it wasn't her fault that the class was stop learning stopped teaching to focus on her, and then they got this misconstrued sheets just won't every body stare at her when reality was that was own you own on you brother for always paying attention to her you're doing say to the down you dare and you're a reasonable human. Much, kimber. Reasonable human being. So to ask you were going to tell me that in the midst of Jerry Jones building a complete stadium, which was coined Jerry World Jerry Jones having the practice facility. This is extremely luxurious and having a condominium essentially attached to set practice facility. You're going to tell me that by by videoing all of these stores, it happened to be a games. There are a lot of stars go to game Sir but when you see conor McGregor showing up at the cowboys, you better believe the whole world to know about it. You're going to tell me that the cowboys don't do anything to seek attention please search speak now the truth yes. The whole truth and nothing but the truth. Yes. Using your premise using your optics and Jerry's world is the biggest baddest thing in in sports oh no, it's not anymore. Thanks. So FAST STADIUM BIGGER BADDER FAIL BILLION DOLLAR STADIUM JERRY's row trumping net. Stan Kroenke. Man. Deans panels respect to them I. Mean Combined Super Bowls. And doing it doing it big. Is Not. Always seeking a tension is this affected you're paying attention you can do it big jerry has three trophies of equity and hall of fame status. If Kim came flex who in the hell, the world should be able to. I want coming up talked to. Kick off tomorrow. Texas. We'll let you know. Okay. So the next dynasty but I. Reggie Bush joins the show. Or Breezes Saints are the team to beat in the NFC speak for yourself presented by Hyundai here it took me a lot of different places. Hey, guys Juju Smith Schuster here probably weird to hear me on his podcasting when you're used to see me do month on a field football's a huge part of my life, but is another thing I love that's a lounging.

Speak for yourself for then by Hyundai just heard Tom Brady will make his butts debuted. Sunday. Against brees the saints on Thoughts Orleans is already done something rare for the team by years to be favorite over Brady led team breaking a seventy four game regular seasons street. Going by the one and only analyst Edgy was I. loved them have. Not. Read we see ourselves. I who is more likely to win the NFC Brady's bucks or breezes. Saints is going to be Brady's bucks but I'm GonNa get through this. Because of that, that's why would go fay who goes. From Saving his season tickets down there in New Orleans somebody Reggie Pretty fast here. But if you look at what the books, where do everyone's talking about this off season, what they've done offensively obviously adding Tom Brady Rob Gronkowski and then just shoring up all their weapons by Leonard Fournette, the Shawn McCoy etc. But we haven't taken notice a fully is how they finished off last season despite Jameis Winston having two turnovers that defense in particular how well that they've played at the end of last year so if you look at them last year we were they Dirt thought top five and takeaways and third and yards allowed on defense. That's the defense starting to hit his stride in the latter part of last year to final eight weeks. Now, you take all of that momentum added with the offense firepower that they have. You put a goat as a cherry on top I think that they're going to be out to outmaneuver what bucks and two saints are going to see week one at throughout this entire year. So I give the slide to the bucks. Let's hear your red. You're wrong. Well, first off before my dog Reggie you off I'm GonNa, throw my dog Reggie to let me start like this. Marcellus, you're a smart man. So I liked talking smart to you. If addition by subtraction can exist them subtraction by addition can also exist think about the buccaneers and think about all egos on that squad you got Rob Gronkowski I battle future hall of Famer comes out of retirement with the greatest quarterback of all time. Then you got my Kevin's who've been his primary receiver. You've got Chris who's in his prime receiver I just told you all about Gronkowski one tight end tight end OJ Howard. Well, he's the first round pick Osama question in the backfield also with Leonard Fournette who was not touches Oh but then you've got Ronald Jones? Who was promised to be a starter there's only one football field. Goals. Over by but besides one football, there's one quarterback everybody killed Jameis Winston Oh. My God they killed them for graduate. You heard it they killed them Marcellus you heard it they killed him but wait shameless. Winston is one of only eight quarterbacks to pass for five thousand yards in a season. Yeah. Tom Brady didn't then in twenty eleven marcello do probably still play in an circuit. Hayden on Janus. Janus actually got the ball around to all them pieces now. I'm GonNa tell you about the flaws in the buccaneers defense, which is going to be a real problem. Later that's a cliffhanger whereas you go ahead and kill this man Marcellus officer. So listen defense that you talked about. You said how well they played at the end of the season. Then defense was twenty nine in scoring. Twenty nine out of thirty two. Also, they worked thirtieth and passing what do the saints do well, please reminding Heathrow the potent. No well to Mike Thomas Alvin Kamara Jared Cook Emmanuel Sanders. We we got so many options so People. Say Some Hail. Not. Take them hills a dog but at the end of the day, but it's GonNa come down to is this is a very different year for a lot of those guys. They don't have a preseason that they were able to work with into jail. Chemistry on a football field. That's. GonNa have to Overcome at Bercy now I was GonNa be against the New Orleans Saints One division three years in a row. Kamal people got have expectations about seven Bay buccaneers why? Why we planned poke the hole into it? Okay. Interesting. Last time I saw drew brees on the field aiming like he was the best quarterback for his team. Let alone drew brees that we know as off. Taste some. Some. He'll like he was the best player on both teams. Last time I saw the saints out there playing losing the kirk cousins who could win a big game but he won a big game against Shaw, how big are the saints? Here's another thing I want to play the pope to whole argument when Alvin Kamara decided to take a four day absence I don't know where he was then. Either there were conversations about trading you know. And they still have signed deal yet. So. Whatever his value is, which I think is pretty high is not high enough to the space 'cause they haven't even hit the gavel yet or how great can be Bush into running back go ahead, one push back. Want pushback I just spoke to Avoca Maher the deals very close they about to get it done, and my dog is about to be back. Thanks for everything is so we've got to worry about. We don't have to that latest. See here you got gotTa. Watch more. You slick he don't move. Feel Go. See how we had him against the ropes the I. You're trying to deflect and the I get back on topic. Marcellin. Got More. If we don't even want to talk about the players play within the fifty three and a third with the football field or don't do this, let's talk about coaches. On Painting Nate Career Playoff wins in thirteen season head coach Bruce Arians one career playoff win two appearances in six seasons I love I. Love Swag I love reality I love his stances for equality. I'm say pedal I'm Spanish I'm not gonNA say but I'M GONNA say He's still got some issues broken because be having shown the ability to win the Big Game John Payton has now flipping in defense of Cyber Equip. The saints have choke hold on this division Hey chokehold thirty seven eleven in the last three seasons, thirty-seven and eleven in the last three seasons Marcellus you're hoping you're wishing on a player you might as well take a penny out the whistle well, and just hope that the Bucks win meteorology come on facts you come up with dreams, hopes and ambitions. Ascorbic. Saying now listen if this wasn't, we didn't have to go through this pandemic and teams know workforce to Limit Limited amount of time they could play actual games that we have no preseason games now. So that's what I'm saying. There are so many elements that are gonNA play this season that are just up against any team that has to start a different system with a new quarterback there. Good. There's going to be learning card Cam Newton is about to go through the same thing up in new. England there nobody's GonNa hit the ground. Running everybody is going to be trying to figure this thing out for those first couple games and all I'm saying is you don't want to be trying to figure out things against the norm and saints the NFC south within and champs messed up. You Act like a dog needs like a warning like he needs a learning curve dog on time to stretch he see food eat and talk about big dogs. What's a bigger dog that's going to hit the ground running in terms of new environment and diversity dead Tom Brady to like if anybody. Can figure this thing out before anyone in the League is going to be a veteran and it's going to be the most accomplished veteran and Tom Brady, and here's some more poking of your argument Reggie Bush. You want to say that the Saint I, mean, the bucks were twenty nine hundred scoring last year, right? Play defense because you star running back in good to play gives them. No you play guest right and what's the worst thing that can happen to a defense when we hit their sideline are We looking for GATORADE and Microsoft surface. Sameness. and. What's and go out there, and that's why they were getting gas. You gotTA keep that in mind when you talk about this defense and this talk about the offense third in scoring last year third in passing last year, and that's with James Swiss and so guys you gotta look at the details of this team has situation and realized how they've shored that up. But this is a little too freely y'all trying to double me I played the wrong extremely well, even in my if you're on a varsity. I got him a rivalry. It looks like here and I want to settle this and tears of football greatness I. Know I wasn't knowing that Texas team that. Beat you Reggie in the national chapter put Reggie. He's distracting you as he said, he's distracting is. GonNa be a senior sooner than you think taxes S. Marcellus does Ranji he's tries to. Sign. Are. Not, going to do that, Marcello. Okay, I feel you. Do Hear what I'm GonNa. Do before before before we got to move on I. Got Him. The biggest hole in your argument you said, adult ain't got a stretch more. Stretch. GotTa. Go just to know who has to stretch forty three year old Tom Brady, that's. A stretch. A hamstring, a quad, a vote. He don't tear something if he don't stretch the way to how did you breeze? Looking and Gronkowski ooh, and Gronkowski. Autumn gotta stretch anyway, Marcello something best for you. You'RE GONNA need to revive don't come.

I'm GonNa tell in front of the world I'm a confessional I hate, the man I'm becoming because I used to be so pro player hung it up what for five years ago and now it's all pro player but now I catch myself with these jaded thoughts as a manager Marcellus. Catch myself thinking these managerial thoughts and it makes me sick I gotta be honest with. They shouldn't give him a new deal and here's why it's not the Kamar is not a piece not that he's not a stud is not that he's not that dude problem is I don't want mar without having breeze and here's what I know. This is more than likely drew brees last season next season if drew brees is in a football stadium, he'll likely be in a booth calling games. So do I want to mortgage to a degree my future based on a running back and I'm not necessarily going to have the quarterback that I would like to couple him with think about this. Tomorrow I leave. What did we call him a change of pace back Reggie you know that definition is a linebacker definition all too well tastes them hill what do we call him a change of pace guy a gadget player do you was the saints really want to have to of your more highly paid players both be change of pace instead of the pace because we've all publicly said, take some hills not going to be the future quarterbacks but you're paying him sixteen mill you're going to go pay Kamara big. DEAL, but he can't necessarily be the workhorse down in down out running back remember if you're GonNa pay him these big box. Can you put your whole franchise behind him McCaffrey Number One and touches last year with about four hundred or four, hundred, seven, Zeke number two in touch his last year you can build your franchise around. Okay. Let's go to another Guy Saquon Barkley. He still missed the entirety of three games but was number eleven in touches last year where was Kamara number nineteen overall and touches last year. I'm not going to talk about his game or the fact that statistically you'd has been declining the last few years because I think that's important due to injuries and not using him as much as properly as he should be used. But if you're looking at it objectively removing our opinions and our biases from it Reggie. Have to say that it's not wise to give him that kind of deal. Will you gave me all the reasons as to why they shouldn't use him. But then you said that it's not because of X. Y. Indeed and so when look Avoca and now look at this offense and I look at Sean Payton exactly the type of player that Sean Payton loves to us out even go so far as to say Sean Payton needs a player like Alvin Kamara because ever since he drafted. In two thousand six, he has been signing players are utilizing players that can do a lot of different things it was danced froze, and now it's Abba Chimera, and so these are the kinds of players that help this offense go. These are the kinds of players that Sean Payton likes to use, and so if he was just a power back, Agai just powered up the middle every time three, four yards then I would. Say. This fit the style of play for the New Orleans Saints. But it does, and this is what they do and it doesn't matter if bees is going to be they're not going to be there next year because the system will not change. It could be Jameis Winston next year all I know is that Sean Payton is going to have a plan champagne is going to have somebody to take over after drew brees leaves. I'm what you ought to own this one for different reasons just want to highlight someone to question marks when you talk about giving someone top dollar or even an extension or new deal, it has to come with a level of certainty and there are some question marks about the New Orleans situation that leads to uncertainty. Let's start off with the future of offense post. Drew brees future of the quarterback. If you want to say give it tastes them hill. He's already thirty years old and as we said, is a change of pace gadget type of quarterback. Can you really rely on him to the fullest? Let's talk about Alvin Kamara specifically in terms of he's been declining brothers. It's because of usage, the question of that order question of his. Durable enough, and that leads to a cloud of uncertainty but they just give it to you an athlete speak because I'm not up here just wearing a suit because I. didn't get my hands dirty in the mud in the dirt Acho. We'll see amazing when you've been retired as long as you played because you've been out of the game four or five years to play for years I've been out the. Game Thirteen years and I played ten, you start to look at things a little bit differently. So if I'm Alvin Kamara I start to look at it like man we're is going on so fast green king time because I'm wondering if Albuque- America keep up in terms of value look at this start rookie year to rookie year versus Christian McCaffrey Alba camera sitting there thinking I got him on the best. Data then the next year it was like all right cool. No problem. He beat me the year after that last is like damn workers McCaffrey go you know when he went he here about the latter but that's the thing and that's why there's uncertainty towards his value. So it's interesting. We know that Christian McCaffrey got sixteen million per year as he passed by album? Chimera. You know who also Alba Kamara? Last. Year Joe Mixing. It turns scrimmage yards and he's sitting there at twelve million. So the greater conversation is not as he going to get paid, but what do you pay them? Do you even pay your morning Joe Mixing who's at twelve million per year based on these numbers I'm GonNa make a statement and then ready I'm GonNa Ashu question that you got to answer honestly the statement is very simple. Camaro is needed to win right now because like you said whether it was you whether it was froze wherever the case may be you need. The saints are so versatile when you have back who's a threat out the Backfield, but also a threat receiver but the question men for me becomes after the Saints Lose Breeze and you don't longer have that. That's that stout dude. At quarterback aren't they going to have to do some sort of rebuild Reggie because if you do even a minor rebuild, not a major reconstruction but if you even come in and fix the kitchen cabinets you got to come in and retail him floors can be tied up to Chimera while you're doing. So why don't you just try to Leverage Chimera? That's my two cents. Because you need continuity right you need to have some guys who understand the culture of the football team you need to have some is there who understand what it is Sean, Payton is looking for. So that's whether there's Jameson or where he goes out and draft somebody it doesn't matter. You still gotTa have those players you still gotta have big time players to make big time plays on Sunday. So I love our Kamera with Michael Thomas and you. Add Jared Kushner what quarterback wouldn't want to go to that offense and then when you're comparing Alvin Kamara to Christian. McCaffrey. Well, Christian McCaffrey has gotten significantly more touches as those years have gone on Alvin Kamara does not get those same amount of touches. So you can't really compare those numbers but numbers don't let them back out and push back ready got put in I. Hate to do this because we just now met but I took push back. McCaffrey is getting significantly more touches. You're correct. Statistically you're correct but in two thousand, seventeen tomorrow led the League in yards per touch number one overall, obviously twenty nineteen, his protest decreased by two and a half and ranked in your for touch went from first to thirteen. So if you have somebody who's statistically is decreasing, why would you give them more touches if they're doing less with the touches, your giving them not asking you a bias question I just want your honest opinion. You gotTa make that make sense for me. You're saying yards per touch, right? If I'm running back. And this this happened to me when I was Working Orleans Saints I'm not the type of person that can go in and just have six carries and give you one hundred yards rushing I, need more carry so I can get into a rhythm, right? So if he's not getting enough touches to get into that rhythm, well, then how can his yards per cherry possibly go up they would have. To go down right because again, if you're Christian McCaffrey, you know you're going to get what? Twenty Twenty five touches game. So you know that you're going to get an opportunity to really get into a rhythm right and get it to a feel for that game. It is very hard to do that when you getting five touches at running back and then you get in six catches as a receiver. and. The getting some return here or whatever it is the needs to be continuity and a half the light again to a rhythm. That's what that's what running back truly is you need touches to get into a rhythm Marcellus if you're a defensive and only put you on their fire times and I say go get me five six it would be that would be really hard for you to do. that. That's yeah. You're right. Reggie don't just talk about me as a defense of it and you know, I, was top five pop warner. All American. In history in terms of my running back ability and I know what you're saying but I also know when I started to have to look at my future and say I ain't GonNa be running back into pros. It's time to look into deficit venues. Coaches. Look at it. One is ability and this is out of the Camaro has not been as durable for whatever reason but to. No sport clubs don't fire to same coaches looked at it, and that's important why they don't give you the same amount of touches. I'm not going to try to make the answer binary I. Think it's a Gumbel of all of our responses. But in in final I want to ask you this quickly Joe Mixing is making twelve million and we see Christian McCaffrey has sixteen million where you think Chimera falls below mixing or between McCaffrey and him. I think he's probably somewhere in and around Joe Mixing I don't think he's GonNa be able to Christian McCaffrey because he's not getting those kinds of opportunities. So when you got gotta understand when you're in the contract negotiations, the first thing they use is your stats right and if whatever that standards for whatever reason regardless if you were getting those amount of touches what those yard say in what those touchdown say is what most they're gonNA use against you and so for Alvin Kamara, I think he's going to be a little bit lower than that just because he's not getting a sheer volume touches, the other guys are getting. So how can you possibly put them up there and say, I, deserve desert. Christian McCaffrey is getting or would you know somebody else's getting? A ride my man appreciate it Reggie you've got to see my pop warner highlight tape for real. You know like, USC it was crazy coming up this sad to watch the bucks season and on the bench until you his days in. Milwaukee our number this before yourself presented by Hyundai.

Let's move on to the NBA. Kumho who had to sit out last night with a sprained ankle is the bucks seat and After the law talk moved the honest future, the reigning MVP can become a free agent at the end of next season and the bucks can offer him the supermax extension are Chris Haines asked the Greek freak if he would hold them hostage this off season if you wanted to change teams and honest said. Not. happening. Joined now by. Marcellus I gotta go to Youtube Butts. Continue to come up toward the playoffs Jonah leave Milwaukee and go chase arraign absolutely. He needs to go say yes piece goodbye. Thank you for your services And what I stand on. Few principles here. The first one is Janas able to have the freedom of mobility to go to any of the other twenty, nine teams and just play for financial success and freedom, but just the opportunity. But to as he's pursuing that, which is taken care of his and taking care of his family, he should be able to also go out there and chase a ring without the negative stigma and stigmas been placed on these players especially of late because the power is into player more. So than the general manager General Manager late to that party that transaction in terms of acquiring players players make that movement occur nowadays back. In the eighties. Yeah. It was a team that had Kareem already on it at magic drafted to it, and then James Worthy drafted to it, and then you have the Super Lakers or in Boston where you have four hall of famers on the same team. Yeah. That's when the GM was sitting there and the cloudy smoke filled room and can make these moves and make these things happen. But now this happened in when these guys are at these skill training facilities, just texting each other just meet in the hamptons whatever it may be but the issue that I have the greatest point wit and greatest problem with. This sis of loyalty like literally you're drafted somewhere. You're forced to go somewhere to play and he was forced to go to Milwaukee to play at the age eighteen and now because of this loyalty. Pose is expected to stay there through highs and lows, and that shows loyalty I. think the greatest loyalty needs to be to himself and to his career to his opportunities of pursuing a championship and that's it. Marcel. Marceau. I'm disappointed in you for that when sir known as a man who looks up to you, I'm disappointed in. On is doesn't need to go chase a ring honest needs Torri bringing a ring to himself. So honest wouldn't be running toward the ring. He would be running away from his limitations and that is the problem I have. Now, you always gotta look at the counter argument. You don't want to be one of the greatest players of all time that never want to ring you, WanNa be one of the greatest players of all time period. You don't want that little extra additive to that sentence but Jaanus when they were talking about the heat matchup this is what really. Rub Me to wrong way you're about to be a two time back to back NBA MVP, and everybody's saying and books had a bad match up the bucks had a bad match up yawn is you should be the bad match up your six eleven A. Freakazoids but the problem is everybody's telling the Butts, what the butts couldn't do and what the heat can do to them. How come sitting here like ban the heat will have no answer for Yon. If he has that great which he has, the ability has proven in the regular season, the ability to do. that he got to be able to do that in the postseason Marcellus if Janas were to leave, it's not as honest does not have the nucleus of a roster that can win a ring if Janas war to leave, it would be punk move and we have seen. As of late. We. Depends what kind of bed you want to lie in at the end of the day shot Charles Barkley. He'll never be able to say he has a rain but everybody does we don't question Charles Barkley's greatness on flipside Katie will for shop over to say he s worrying finals mvp but people will always be like man cave where'd you have one without them Golden State Warriors because it's not like you didn't have a squad I'm just saying Janas might end up in that same type of conversation. How you got the best record in the League and get bounced best record in the League and get balanced and not even in a pretty fashion Janas doesn't need to go chase a ring. Ring Ring the him. I almost feel bad jumping in on this at this point because Acho you just took Marcellus down I feel like I'm piling on here please bringing contraband and my wait. Let me Let. You guys may know this about me maybe you I'm a practical man. Not into the whole loyalty thing, he should stay there he he should be guilted and staying there because so many guys have left in it's a small market. Yata should stay in Milwaukee because he's not going to find a place better suited for him and everything that he wants to achieve. This is Milwaukee Bucks team that was in the conference finals last year and went to the semis this year, it's a team that has another all star in Chris Middleton. Next to him, he has two other all defensive team players. He has a guy in the coach and Mike boot and holder who's been in an organization that has won championships. He knows that championship formula. So when I put it all together, Milwaukee can oh, by the way, a billionaire owners who are willing to spend almost. Everything in anything and there's a familiarity there that Janas. So I'm not asking him to do this to make a sacrifice to stay in. Milwaukee I'm looking at what he said what he has and I'm saying Janas you can't go to a place that's going to get you something more than that, and if we're talking about legacy and legend to bring a one one, championship, one championship, the Milwaukee now connects him to Oscar Robertson and Kareem abdul-jabbar. If he goes anyplace else, it's going to require multiple champions to get championships to get that done in much. The same way that Lebron one championship in Cleveland is worth two in Miami. To be connected with Kareem and win a championship and Milwaukee and do Kareem did leave. That got what five when he went to. Talk about that connection Korean. I. Yeah. Okay. That was cute though somewhere else where there are greener pastures that said, there's a basketball situation that's even better for him. Right now, a lot of reports fired up about the Miami Heat talking about an ownership and resources. That guy was. Team and to. That guy. I'd say one thing y'all didn't learn from the Kevin Durant situation we did what we did was he got his two rings. Here's the thing nobody in history is going to question if Kevin Durant is a better basketball player Charles. Barkley. Just be real about that chocolate trying to poke holes and call them all the names you won't. But when you talk about who was better, you're not gonNA have the argument and this is argument Yana should not get lost in don't go down that path brother go down the path that's best for you select group which. I don't know where you are right now. It's pretty darkened was incredibly just solve. Mysteries is chasing. Right now but slick rick it's amazing that. It sounds like a war crime almost how they draft you. They force you to go somewhere and no matter what happens there. You're supposed to stay there or we're gonNA persecutor image and a guy like Ottawa, call it a pop. If, you decide to go to greener pastures to give you not only to financial success that you're. GonNa get. Either place, but there's a cherry on top potential. If you go to Miami Heat, potentially go to the Portland Trailblazers who knows what could happen to Golden State Warriors what they could cook up but the point of this is I just don't like the stigma whatever he wants to do if he wants to stay please don't sit there say this guy is better than the rest because he stuck it out like Russell Westbrook was winning that argument for two or three years and then realized let me try and figure this out somewhere else greener pastures I wish people would stop pushing back on these guys for having the freedom that we all should have Not Marcellus that he's better than arrest as Janas said it himself two, thousand, eighteen they asked him about superstar teams. He said young gotta have a lot of stars He said I definitely think we have great pieces. Every guy on his team knows his role in his having fun and enjoying his role John is when asked about being buddy buddy with guys you said Kobe didn't have a lot of friends while he was playing he said K. G. he wasn't buddy buddy with a lot of guys I just don't think that makes a ton of sense you're honest and grow up in this. Culture where we all got a kick it and post each other on snapchat. After the Game Janas has already expressed his opinion Marcellus. He already said, I want to do it a different way and how dare you even say that Jaanus go join the heat a team that Janas should have been able to beat at Janas rather than joining and leaving and running to the hate just improve the skillset. Now when he tried to pack the paint, he can make them pay with the mid-range jumpers like you're the problem is reality. Three one. Three on is went to score was I don't know what matters is at the end of the day should Katie of left or Katie of not just one he could've just looking no. You get day slick. We're going to get on this this whole Colby Cagey mentality. How did Cagey finally win a big three in Boston? How did Kobe Win Shack? He got three Whigham then he had a super team that didn't win and then it gets the saw like these dues to. Say we're not talking. Chris Chris Middleton is a good player but if there's a situation, why would you want to have the reservation of kind of a slick started still some more meat on this ball so Got To grow real quick Marcel, little grab broker because you really. Tried to but I'm about the bottom. Another bobby is a problem that you have Marcellus, the only reason at the Buxton advance. To stand let me ask me. Say Let let me ask you this. Let me ask you this I'm GonNa play to your bias I'm going to play the year bias if Colli. was on the bucks instead of Janas do the bucks beat the heat. You know. Answer. The answer. Answer. The question I really can't because the heat have no. This you knows. He's lying and I can not lie. Let me. See. Macau lower. He added we'll. Championship anther is Chris Middleton. There is an answer is now Hawaii was on the bucks instead of Yon is the bucks would have won if Lebron was on the bucks instead. Much would have won. So you sit here and saying it John Doe Chase other teams because go as a ring, Janas can just. Sit John is just improve his game and the the killer. Don't go. There's the other part of this. First of all making the comparison Decay D. is fair because Katie was a complete player and he went to a team in the Golden. State Warriors. That was perfect. The complementary. Thank you. It was needed. That's not going to happen wherever jaanus goes. He's not going to go as a free agent. They're GONNA have to give up assets to get him. But if you look at the culprits whether it's Miami or it's the Lakers or Dallas, any of the teams that have been mentioned. He's going is the second banana or as a carpetbagger he's not going to be looked at as the guy if he wins in Milwaukee again, it's going to be because of Yana sought to compo and the fact that they haven't wanted this point is because of Janas author compo right now he has a Scottie Pippen skillset Adams. Thank can talk the coaches have coached him. Kid Number of guys in Milwaukee they all say he has the Jordan mindset. He's just not their skill wise yet. So why not develop those skills and bring home a championship in Milwaukee rather than go someplace else you mentioned Russell Westbrook Marcellus how's that working out for Russell Talk? Play behind. doughty being there. He's not going to get the credit that he would have the state out while. Visit I was working with a hypocrite. I don't know I don't. Show is a hypocritical. Hypocrisy. Go ahead. Because Alberto look he's lying somewhere to come over here to get paid and get the ring and the join forces with the MVP of this game. It's your boy right here. Now Otto does it. It's all good but if yacht is going to greener pastures this above Outta here. Let's move on to our big story coming up. To fill season, kicks off tomorrow night.

Marcellus Wiley would emmanuel ought to took some lashes that last hour He's still here people, but he took some lashing how would that Free Agency for this team? Are Let's get started with our big story sponsored by Jimmy Dean 'cause today's your day to shine on. The chiefs will start the defence of their super bowl title tomorrow against the Texas put. It sounds like they're not satisfied one championship tyreek, Hill, Cheetah predicted several rings this off season. Face the franchise Koch Mall. As sites on building an all time team Casey. Santo. When you see, we have a lot of these guys coming back they WANNA be part of this they. WanNa. To be a part of this culture, they want to be part of trying to build a dynasty. The, NFL's next. I honestly man absolutely this one knows easy questions dude every now and then I love when you just Oh, me open like let's get to go up there and go. Clearly. The next dynasty, but it's because when I think about dynasties Marcel Marceau Marcilio. SILLIEST When? I think about dynasties big Bro. The nucleus is that have to be in place okay and then when I think about okay. The Patriots Dynasty they had two of them say I when you have Tom Brady obviously then on the defensive end you got tedy Bruschi we got well let me get okay second Patriots Dynasty. It's still got Tom Brady then you got Dante hightower you've got mccourty de whether it was cornerback her back their safety when I think about the cheese, they have their pieces in place They got Patrick mahomes locked up. You Got Tired Kill you got Travis Chelsea. You just drafted running back in the first round plus you gotta running back Damien. Williams just opted out the season defensively you got Chris Jones a stout pro bowl. They're probably the most underrated defensive lineman in the NFL. But then you also have tavern matter who you're gonNA be locked up. But the biggest thing to me Marceau's when I think about this dynasty is people want to play they're. Not. necessarily. Like the Patriots. Even miss. Their dynasty it was it was predicated upon Tom Brady like he was going to be there regardless of who want to come and go you had players who chose retirement in Gronkowski over wanting to play. The teeth everybody's like, I want to be here all sacrifice money to be here so. I'm a first lap. That's where I'm a drop. The MIC teaser don't be a dynasty. They're clearly not going to be a dynasty and look I'm not gonNA be too in front of my skis too far ahead of my skis and say absolutely not but history already told us that this is probably not going to happen despite them having everything in place. Let's talk about what was in place last year how much confidence do you have in saying the word dynasty when they barely got to the destination be rude this was a team that was down ten. This is a team that was down twenty four in the playoffs. This was a team that was down ten the fourth quarter of the Super Bowl. So if I were going to sit there and say, we'll chest dynasty here becomes y'All y'all GonNa make Lou easier in terms of arriving at that destination and they didn't. But now it's looking history as I'm the screen cone God. Let's go back to back just back to back forget dynasty back to back. Super Bowl winners of the fifty four we got one to be determined. Obviously, that's the chiefs but I see thirty percent of the teens missed the playoffs you mean won a super bowl in the next year thirty percent just missed the playoffs entirely, and then sixty one percent of those teams didn't even advance to the conference championship I'm using history and try to map it onto the Kansas City chiefs of today for reality but we haven't seen this occur auto. Since when the Patriots did it what was this seventeen years ago? Chill big. First Problem Marcellus not everyone went to Columbia okay. That graphic about as complicated. As the most important number, you see that shaded area that's more team that didn't do it. No. Back in and nudist off top of the Dome like analysts we get paid to do. Okay. Think about the competition for them to be a dynasty let's AFC and I'm just GONNA go down the list. I don't even see the players Buffalo Bills, quarterback td Miami Dolphins quarterback as older other quarterback is injured. New England Patriots what's Cam Newton going to New York or quarterback Steve Goes Baltimore Ravens okay, he's check Cincinnati bengals dough boroughs going to have to improve in spite of what they can do these browns quarterback in. Pittsburgh steelers, their quarterback old Houston. Texas. Shawn Watson has to win in spite of Bill O'Brien Indianapolis. Colts quarterback old Jaguars no quarterback titans their quarterback caught a lightning in a bottle who else DENVER broncos quarterback as young raiders they don't even Mike Their quarterback, and then you've got the chargers they draft a quarterback in the top ten time. Richard gave you the whole, a FC and the only two names I didn't stutter over was the more and the Shaun. Those are the only two names the only two teams that can stop this chiefs team from being a dynasty. I just riddled that often the last forty seconds. Yeah. There's no. Stopping point but a tease being a dynasty, almost bill slander and there for my taste. Bringing somebody who knows a thing or two about football Lavar ARRINGTON are guy a lavar settled as beef right here are the chiefs the NFL's next dynasty. No they are not. They are not, and there's been a lot. I tend to go with the heaviest the head who wears the crown right? They're going to get everybody's best shot. You throw a lot of the AFC names out there, and that's that's interesting because before you talk super bowl as Marcellus illustrated so well in the full. You're talking about thirty percent missed the playoffs. Well, think about this guys their schedule is not easy and you just went through there you through the AFC like it was something that was going to be easy for them to navigate. When you look at who they have the play, I can easily see them losing seven gauge you think about. Oh, yeah. So Ravens, the Patriots, the bills, the box, the saints, and the Falcons are all teams that are more than personnels capable to win against this this city Oh, and by the way they could lose tomorrow and their home. Of Their defense but I'll touch on later you mentioned the defence of their crown. Marcellus. Out Touch on that on my next one twenty-five team since the salary cap era started in the early nineties and let's just be real about this only to have won it back to back forget dynasty just back to back. We're talking about the Denver broncos roles and we're talking about the New England Patriots and when you look at the situation. It doesn't matter your pieces. It doesn't matter how we look at the roster. It doesn't matter how we look at the schedule. It matters that that road ahead you're going to have hell to pay because one you have to fight off the opponent that is GonNa be landing between your own ears and tears of complacency. They're saying the right things right now, and that's why there is a thing called the super bowl hangover for whatever reason every single man on this roster. is going to go back to square one with the same intensity and Hogger Andy. Reid is talked about this. Andy Reid has even tried to make sure that these guys understand this sense of urgency. That's necessary. Every single play to even put yourself in position to go out there and have a dynasty. But even back to back is going to be a daunting task what happened to the Legion of boom, and then we're going to go back to back and create dynasty well. We have to the twenty two. And half fifteen guys in the next year they go fifteen and one when they're completely healthy. that. Back to back. To all the time of the mid nineties, we saw the Green Bay packers when they had reggie white nose boys. Dynasty like we've just heard the false reports of dynasty before, and my last point is just kind of interesting the Universe Andy Reid you been coaching as a head coach twenty one years, and he finally gets one and a chice finally get their second super bowl in fifty years. Yup. Think they just go come back to back. It's created dynasties that fast there's going to be a war of attrition here process. Here's the problem with what you said there is no attrition at least not internally within the chiefs supposed to return twenty of the twenty two starters. The only reason they didn't is because to opt out. So now the returning eighteen of the twenty two starters but consider this consider how. Much better. The chiefs actually are than every body else even when they struggled Marcellus and you said this I saw my own is I was there we were all talking about the game even when they struggled in the Super Bowl, they still won not because they necessarily weren't GonNa be the better team that day we use as a football cliche because they were head and shoulders better than the forty niners if we get down to it again, I've used this analogy before I, watch you same boat hundred meter two, thousand, fifteen world champion. He slips out of the blocks stumbled his heels, click nearly false face I still win because he ran a better race that day but because he's that much better. Last point say here to conclude this whole thought is this Patrick Mahomes won a super bowl before losing a game by more than seven points. He won a super bowl before losing game by more than seven points even on Patrick Mahomes off-day. That's still better than most teams best day that's why they don't be dynasty. Strong. Yeah. Jump in on this and I'm GonNa say, no, you're totally incorrect on this Mr Macho Macho and I got I gotta be honest here the biggest question here you continue to talk about all the continuity and everybody who's coming back and how many starters are coming back take a look at this Defense Dallas. All right. When you look at this defense, your your your linebackers are in question you mentioned entire Matthew Right? They got they got some guys at that position right Frank Clark they got Chris Jones right those are your guys. But what it gets outside of that, you don't have to start to question. The run you look at their linebacking core change south to run and then U.K say, wow, what in the past. Ten. They stop the pass because that's going to be important when you have a guy that twits up the ball way Patrick Mahomes if it's if it's miss, you're going to have to play defense. So let's take a look at their secondary, right. It's a very unproven secondary's biggest question mark. Okay. You got the safety shove excuse me Daniel Sorensen. All right. first year starter Mercer Start Six round draft pick. What is he going to do? We don't know he led the team in tackles a few years back, but we don't know what that means. That's. Decent. Varsity. Talk in the bars. That's what I'd like. To Bar Jabbar's all right to to bear his war shot Fenton. Antonio Hamilton are ballers do you do? We know who they are our lay dot com hangers doesn't matter lavar is a quote. There's A. Matter. Say Love covers a multitude of scenes you WanNa know what else does Patrick Mahomes mahomes covers a multitude of say why? Not, I'm not making a mistake nine to. Play. Number one, you gotta play defense you do you have to play defense eventually but the cheese only started playing defense week eleven at his past even remember the first eleven weeks of the season cheese Stevens was atrocious but guess what they turn it off for a little bit and. What happened in the Super Bowl Stevens wasn't all out but remember what's the best defense? A really good offense if the chiefs are already up twenty days. That it's a bad. Because San Francisco, took their foot off the gas. The. Gas To play games. They. Played a little say I don't know if love or mahomes covers a multitude of sins but I do know when it talks when you're talking about continuity going forward sooner or later some of those other players who can't get paid 'cause everybody else already has gotten paid are going to be faced with a question. Do I want to dynasty or do I will dinner again? I gotta get my money, and then you're going to start to see the attrition of Dinosaur. Fence for the drop some knowledge on Deck Presto and a few others with something we like to call a while is Smarter. Today every answer matters more than ever before because whether it's about health deliveries or finance some things just can't wait. That's why IBM is helping businesses manage millions of calls, texts, and chats with Watson assistant it's conversational. Ai Designed to help your customers find the. They need faster. No matter the industry. Let's put smart to work visit IBM DOT COM Slash Watson Assistant to learn more. Come back to speak for yourself. It's time for my favorite. Segment it's time for some widely. Put while the on the spot and he drops them knowledge on. So let's get this thing popping. Let's start in Dallas that press got his plan on a franchise tag. He was the new field yesterday. You said, he don't think he got anything left approve. So big Bro the absolute actually believe that dachshund trying to prove something to the cowboys Let's start off with widely ISM show. This advice I read a choke on greatness then nibble on mediocrity. Dak Prescott is not going to eat the meal that you guys have served him, which is not a meal up to his standards up to his expectations. Please stop trying to limit Dak Prescott and all you do that. Prescott. Past the threshold of being a great player in this league, you WanNa know why? Because he's already outpacing the guy who's made the most money in the last four years and kirk cousins. So he has financial security that relaxed effort that already I'm. Approving man in this league also the owner and we look at Steven Jones always record saying how much that they want to act to be a cowboy for life so if you guys keep telling me that Dak, Prescott serve all of these simple limited expectations of who you should be Deck I. Always Laugh at you guys as he goes out there and fight for greatness not mediocrity tokcan greatness that Prescott Marcellus has gotta make sure he doesn't choke period well being gone. Over said, they're more likely to draft the college player who actually played in twenty twenty overdo the decided to opt out. So big Bro, you blame the steelers for being skeptical of players that opt out of college football this season. Oh the widely is his. Discipline is deciding between what you want now and which you want later Kudos to players for understanding what the bigger picture looks like and what's more responsible towards your personal future and not just trying to make a general manager's job easier. What's better to have a big twirl Kovic title or go out there and make it pro and do what's best for you and your family and be able to take care of you and yours it's an obvious answer but it seems like some general managers out they're going to have to meet hate in town until you if we don't see you. Then, we don't know what to do with you. It's valuation really when I heard reports that after Trevor Morris Freshman year, he didn't need to play another down a football and he's going to be the number one overall pick. Oh, you want to make your job easier to make me suffer through the process I'm calling all you general managers out for that I have no grievances with widely more Celsius. So shall we move on this? Do finally former NBA head coach Byron Scott well he called Alpha NBA players Marcellus. He called him out over the nets hiring of Steve Nash saying quote our players don't do a good enough job of advocating. For black coaches. So marcellus on your final widely, ISM served you agree with Byron Scott saying players have a responsibility to advocate for black coach all by Scott a friend of mine of a great scholar here says, well, you have to watch what you ask for because he just might kit careful. This one is easily and thinly veiled in terms of rooting interest. So let me take you back. We're basically saying we're telling all players to root for color don't root root for just married at for ditch a roof war color interest in but on the flip side were upset at owners for now hiring associates, friends and family. So my question is. How many white employees were at death row records dog you what I'm coming from. Basically when ownership is in your possession, you're able to do what the hell you walk of. Fortunately, we live in a reality right now that the ownership doesn't look like the players. So that's The only way to player's GonNa get out of this is either. Or make sure that they root for the right guys that go out there and succeed and continue to let the dominoes fall. You GotTa Watch what you ask for because you just might get it.

Speak for yourself let's talk about Colin Kaepernick who was added to the Madden video game for the first time since twenty sixteen, the game came out in late August. But the option to put them on a team came out yesterday Kapernick, even giving it eighty one rating which is hired in several starting quarterbacks including Cam, Newton Ed, calum Murray but that's not all when he scores a touchdown. Catholic. Raises his fist civilized black our joined once again by Lavar area but I'll tell you. What do you make of Cabernet being back on bet come on the as four main I. I can't even say appreciate the effort. Here's my so many issues at least time ago. So many number one y'all know in hoops referee goes down to court a missing agreed call. So then they go back down to court and they call something it was non existent 'cause they got a makeup up calls makeup call. Yeah. He's foresaw doing is a makeup call two, thousand eighteen. They will make Colin Kaepernick's name from a soundtrack on the game two thousand and thousand nine. He's still not on a game. So in twenty twenty, you know what we're going to do we're GONNA make a makeup call, but not only are we going to make a makeup call? We gotta make so outlandish that work on a rate him higher than the reigning rookie of the year. then. Cam. Newton. Do NFL MVP when Colin Kaepernick was to in sixth s season and then also rate them higher than Ryan Tannehill who had a historical season last year fourth higher highest passer rating in NFL history. Now I like Colin Kaepernick Y'all know my stance on all of this stuff. But EA sports, if you'RE GONNA try to make a makeup call you got to at least be a little snicker with it came out of the thing Marcellus. The game came out and what late, August how come capper Nick is on this update why wasn't? Catholic role doubt game rolled out in late August and it's not like don't know cabinet wasn't going to be available as not like out in cavern cavernous existence but are we doing this to be seen or are we actually doing this because it's the right thing when I look at this unfortunately, all I see is a makeup call. Yeah for me. It doesn't do anything for me, but for CAP, supporters out there out think you should do anything for you as well. Jimmy coined a phrase Wiley ISM dead. He says owning uncle John I don't ask for two months. You just accept too little who Fills like point that right now, like anybody who was cheering for this Jones has taken anything they give you and it's interesting on my second lap I'll tell you about how we've been there before and just taking anything they give us but. If you're on. cavs team high is this a win and then how is this even coming to fruition because he was supposedly taken off the game for not being a part of the Union signed into Gla, which is the group licensing agreement, but he's not a part of the Union now and certified or Izzy, and then why the late addition to this aid dishing. Out of things to really stew on if you WANNA go there. But lavar this. Fella's a lot is a lot right and this is all about the benjamins bathing. Yeah. Right. Think about this. Think about this when they had to add remember ninety I, remember I remember Nike and Colin Kaepernick. How much does the headline saying? How many? Is Six. BILLION REASONS WHY EA Sports decided to act Colin Kaepernick back to their game. What's good for the goose can also be good for the Gander burpee say before and when you look at what EA sports is trying to do right now they saw nike take all of their chips and push them all into the center of the table and let it ride. Well, think about this with all of the issues that are persisting in our culture right now today Colin Kaepernick movement is more relevant and louder and more readily accessible to day and support it. Then what it was back then when Nike took a chance on it so sports sitting here like, Hey, where big company like Nike let's go ahead and All our chips into the center of the table, and if we suport, it stars the mood and the Sun and the quasars out there with one Colin capper Nick and what he represents to the people and we come up short on six billion. We didn't do too bad but he and I. Feel You la. But what you're exactly what you're saying is exactly right and that's exactly why I have a problem with all this like. Not Joe like I'm looking at in ten. You know what I'm saying like what what we're in such a volatile legitimate trying time right now I'm tired of seeing people leverage people for a dollar like can we do that in two thousand, twenty one? Can we focus on twenty twenty on like actually making quality decision for quality life and for the quality of other people. But when I look at this cabinet situation I'm like wait a second now even got him raising up the pfister symbolize blackout is he never did that game? You're going to have them celebrate. Let him kiss his vice up with the Superman. He never did that in a game and I know that they said they talked to Colin Kaepernick about this that and the third, and I might that also Marcellus. It just boggles my mind because cap never did that to celebrate so now. You touched on something. You ask. Talk Talk about that topic capper Nick about this because look when you think about it, you're not going to be able to use this and leverage this unless copper nick was involved in this whole entire situation. So go ahead, expand on. Expand Coverage. Isn't just what? It stands with the person that's allowing them to do it as well. I'll let go there don't support of the costume, and that's why look this is my whole stance on Colin Kaepernick from day one when I was at ESPN was not supporting him and following him but I wasn't against what he was talking about in spirit I just thought his moves were a lot of missteps and he was in little people, waters, acumen or lack thereof was showing because of all those missteps and Look I ain't got to go there. You already know and that's in part why you had to go silent because he knew every time he spoke he will step in it. That's one Colin Kaepernick but the movement was greater than that in the spirit of it. So I never said anything until they started to have frilly fire starts shooting other people trying to do the same thing they're doing differently and that's when. I got two brothers, and if we start capping everybody going to get it in terms of integrity and it turns the intention what you guys are talking about. So this is a part of the costume. 'CAUSE CAPRA Nick also had to put on a black leather trench always wearing black kid take had the good the Afro, the corals. The black power fist it's all a part of the costumed optics to seem like blacker and all and go away at college. You did it is still being done. So let's not act like that was in two thousand sixteen but here's the thing that I hold ea sports responsible for because they're sitting there as a video game power and they're doing something. Let's just be real. Doesn't seem like they have the purest intentions. So they sit there and calculate and say, let's do something. We really don't want to do but hey, this is the flavor of the month. Let's do it. And then they seasoning up and make your real tasty and throw a black power fist on their on top of that because he knows that they don't eat it up his followers, his supporters they don't eat it up and it's not. Just the slops is the extras, it's the leftovers. And they're gonNA. EAT IT UP. You know what that reminds me of I took a class one time and they they told us to ors is a soul food and how are people will eat it up but we know how it all started. It wasn't what we desire what we wanted, what we truly were seeking. It was just another leftover distraction to get us all in caught up in this cycle of pandering i. wish the pattern was stopped but I can't say that because there are too many people supporting it only in spirit, but also and dollar and purchasing power is crazy. You're going to start to see Afro Sheen black power picks come back to big long. Picks. Just for man I used. It looks good on me I like it. The bottom line here is when I say exploitation at the end my purse by I rent it wasn't just saying exploitation EA exploiting, Colin. Kaepernick. and that's what everybody probably sitting home watching it. So No. Colin is exploiting you people. He's exploiting Yun why? Because they know if he put staff black power fist up in the air that is going to be the most attractive thing to everyone who is out here trying to fight that fight and when I take that. Walmart where I don't want to be guilty about not fighting the cause. But I'm playing my video game because I still love playing video games. I want to know that I did something that's supported the cost. So I took Colin Kaepernick and added to my team didn't even coming back to the league. Accept, the fact that capture nick isn't coming back to the league, but you're still going to buy this game. You're still gonNA use them in the game and you're going to send you late him being a part of your favorite team and for all the people that he turns out for all the anti protest people, all the people don't see this as being American, and all the other agitates you describe what people are doing in favor of what capper next supports. It's not enough of you. There's not enough of you that will boycott the game and not by the gang. Where putting Chafranik on that game with his black power fixed up isn't going to resonate with the audience that's GonNa pay over six billion dollars in product based off the leadership and the value that Colin Kaepernick is pushing to you guys and that you're buying and you're running wit. So God bless America that's called capitalism. People are two ways to assess a situation and you're gonNA send a situation by the action or you can assess the situation by the intent. I am assessing the situation by the intent EA sports the accent of putting Colin Kaepernick back in the game kudos. Golf clap but the intent of pulling putting Colin Kaepernick back in the game question marks because that's what I still am undecided about coming out him accountable to Yes max coming up Lebron Anthony Davis are two wins away from the conference finals. We'll tell you if that means the doors already shut on Houston. That's next week. Welcome back to speak for yourself. Best head to the NBA where the Lakers in closer to the conference finals last night after beating the rockets lays now up to one and a series. Lebron James Combined for sixty two point king set a record with the most all playoff wins. At, this point again by Slick Rick for. Got GotTa go to you first the Lakers shut that door. Oh Man it looks that way the family is in the room hugged up. The patients on life support sorry rockets, and they look at that plug, pull it on you guys because I. Don't know what's happening in a fourth quarter two rockets have been up and each of these three or four quarters. Then they find themselves losing two of these three four quarters and that's not the way it's supposed to work especially when you're playing small ball. The Lakers last night went on seventeen to five run to start the fourth quarter and it was lights out and it came from weird places like Rondo. Hitting three pointers Caruso step it up in a moment and you start to realize If the Lakers are gonNA keep playing any money Mo what they're others in terms of stepping-up outside of their dynamic duo is going to be curtains on the rockets. They gotTA figure out a way to stop those others Marcellus in English eleven I have to take. Vocabulary quizzes and vocabulary tests, and you have to learn a ton of words and I learned one word, Marcellus. I never thought I would use, and that word is ajar Aj ar jor means a door that's left slightly open see the Lakers. Of Leftist Door Ajar it's not completely shut. It I said the Lakers would win and five. I now think the Lakers will likely win six. The Lakers are GonNa win. But the Lakers are getting bloodied up and blood and a little bit while doing. So remember. In the Bron-, they've combined for sixty points fifteen times on the season they had to do it twice the last two games again if I'm not mistaken to get these dubs and even while they're getting these dubs early on like it's not as if the Lakers are winning handily, you're kind of concern for the first three three and a half quarters and laid in that game you're like okay to Laker the pulling away I do think the Lakers are GonNa shut the door eventually but I Don't think the door shut just yet the rockets of shown us this. They can be trailing by fifteen twenty points and come comeback in a flash. If we're being real, it's not as if the lock rockets of played a great game either the last two games, you could argue they played a terrible game game two and the Lakers are still played at a very high level to very high clips. So I don't think the door is shut yet. They will set it right now still left ajar. Got To tell you. You're you are like Lebron on this show today and Marcellus is Yana sought to Conclo-. Has Maybe the repeat those rice, and yet we know who the real MVP is. Arming like one and that has been you my friend when it comes to the NBA, you're one hundred percent right I. Don't have a whole lot of confidence that the rockets are going to pull this off but there is still an opening the door is not shut and it largely resides because the difference maker, the difference maker, the Guy Stepping up has been Rajon Rondo. No one's plus minus has been more tied to wins and losses other than Lebron Been Rajon. Rondo and. There's a question there about whether Rajon Rondo can stay healthy. Let's keep in mind. He missed games because of a back the tightened up he missed games because of a broken thumb and if you look at his recent history in the post season. He has a tendency to rape down if those postseason runs last any bit of time. So the possibility that Rajon Rondo could have another physical setback and if he does that changes the equation, I can tell you this. The Lakers are not up to one in this series of Rajon Rondo is not a plus thirty five in the last two games. So it's going to take the loss of the Rajon Rondo in order for this to turn. But history tells us that is a possibility. Yeah. But the issue is like last night, we see what hardened goes for thirty three rascals thirty and that's their formula. But you're seeing the Lakers have this care carousel with the other players outside of a D.. Step. Book with a consistent element being regime Rondo I said the same thing as you guys said I just said it in picture form in terms of the family all hugged up looking at the rockets on life support. And I think the Lakers are ready to pull the plug think about it. Lakers go out there and have re people formers. Even, if they're going into the fourth quarter now they have this extra layer of confidence. They didn't have even come into the series the question mark for the Lakers coming into the series was what is ad on doing a fourth quarter Lakers a fourth quarter. It says that they've been able to answer that and also solve other issues, and that's why I say that this team right now is alive. Support are you going to get more out of Westbrook? Are you get more out of hard? Are you GONNA get more out of your others and even if you do, it seems like the Lakers others are ready to step up and rise occasion my concern Marcellus and again told her a pessimist. So as a Lakers fan, my concern is this game to when the Lakers were already down they had. To make a comeback Lebron Navy, they combined for sixty two points and then rondos plus twenty eight. So it was like man and then mind you wars also had twelve points in three minutes. So you're wondering okay. Can the Lakers do this again? I Game Lebron and eighty combined for sixty two points now rondos not necessarily plus twenty eight but it gives you twenty one points Rondo his several threes. So you're wondering, can the Lakers really do this again I think this theory for me has really been. Okay Kimball Lakers. Keep doing this because they're formulas a little atypical Howard getting no burn McGee getting no quality burn AP and Lebron are they going to have to continue to combine for sixty points just to get out the semi's if they do you still gonna run into them dogs more than likely. I'm a little concerned. Yes. They'll shut it but in shutting get as GonNa take a little bit of luck a little bit inconvenience or the ad given everything they have night in and night a WHO's a chunk of flesh in the process right? Yeah, the question is, can the Lakers maintain this form and the rockets? Are they going to continue this way if so it defies what they were during the regular season the rockets got a greater percentage in their from free throws than they are in this series they were better than the Lakers in that department and they were much better. They were number one in the league. When it came to three pointers made per game, the Lakers have been. Able to balance that out and in some cases, beat them in those categories they weren't able to during the regular season. If things go back to form rockets, do have a shot second only to my clippers in terms of again to that free throw line, they need to do what they need those three points this dynamic duo coming up I feel like we're back in school 'cause uncle Jim is going to great today show weeds trouble fast next. Say. Four regardless bring in off Jimmy. Be. Nice. Let a great withdrew give today so. I'm. GonNa break down. I'M GONNA put it to you like the right. I'm going to give you a be.

Brady's comments on race in sports, LeBron's 'I Promise' documentary, Rex Ryan/Geno Smith, Vernon Davis joins the show

"Speak for yourself from the crib presented by Hyundai Jason Whitlock Marcellus Walli coming from our CRIBS. Are we have a fantastic show a plan for you today? Tell you why. We'll get into it with bricks. Bucur ABOUT WHY? I got a little problem with Lebron James. I promise school documentary Art Vernon Dangerous. We're GONNA pull up his grip. The pro bowl super bowl champion tidy and now retired will pull up in his crib but we will start by going out to Chris Filming Ohio State. Great Detroit Lion. Great one of the greatest guys in Sports Fox sports football broadcaster force Happy to have Chris Christie going to help us talk about Tom Brady and his interview with Howard Stern. Some more as we've now had a chance to digest the entire two hours. There's a group of people that somehow have taken issue with Brady's comments about race and football and sports and how he saw his experience in New England and in football as it related to raise Taylor listen to what Brady told Howard Stern. Yesterday I never saw race. I think sports sports transcends race. It's transcends well that transcends all that I mean you again you get to know you appreciate the let let someone else may bring and you know whatever you know. Whatever they bring. I think when you're in a locker room of fifty guys you don't think about race you know you don't think about 'cause you're all the same at that point you know it. It doesn't matter WHO's married. Who's single. Who's got kids who doesn't have kids white black. You know whatever it is you just you figure out how to get along and I think that's sports teaches you about life and that way and it's very natural all right so some people over at SBA and wrote an editorial didn't sign their name to it. Criticizing Brady saying he's avoiding the race issue and saying that Colin Kaepernick and Eric near read and guys who took a knee. Obviously see race differently than Tom. Brady if you listen to Brady during the interview. That's not what he was addressing. He was in a deep conversation with Howard Stern about the culture in New England. His how he related to teammates. That are twenty years younger than him from different high schools at him from different economic backgrounds at him and then he made a broad philosophical point when Howard ask him about did he ever feel self conscious playing in the League that seventy five percent black where. He's the great white quarterback and Brady said that about race. I have absolutely zero problem with it. I think he's accurate particularly from his perspective. That's how he sees the sports world and that's how he sees his experience in the NFL and Football Marcellus. Do you have a problem with anything? Tom said here as it relates to race. No not at all. I thought Tom Brady spoke accurately. And aspirational about how it is to be a football player. Integration of race into sports He talked about all of our experiences where I was introduced to differ racist ethnicities and cultures because of who was in my locker room who was in that huddle and I took exception to this article that I tried to read who actually authored is article despite them having individual writers on so many articles this was written by the SBA nation staff. Nobody wanted to put their name to this as you mentioned earlier and I can see why they say Tom. Brady has no business commenting on this issue. The way he did because he's never been marginalized. Whoa and that's how you want to discredit him. All right well. Let's use that logic train and that same logic train may discredit one Colin Kaepernick. Who was in a situation where you had to foster parents? To adopted pairs. There were white and he's half white themselves now. If you WANNA bring race into the conversation disqualifier then. Colin Kaepernick is not speaking fully for me. And I don't want to go into that but they wanted to go into that and really put Tom Brady. Statements mapped on to that entire issue. Unfortunate SO TOM. Brady was speaking about what we saw. How did I come in contact with Chris? Filming my former teammate in Buffalo. Got Out probably wouldn't have crossed past certainly not had brotherly connection with unless it was for the game of football and. I think that's what Tom Brady was talking about there. We leave a lot of our hangups behind us when we walk into a lock room just the way it is. People don't understand that maybe they never been in there. Well it's good to see both of you in just to reflect on what Marcellus just said I never would have came in contact with Marcellus that Columbia believe me. I couldn't get into Columbia but I do know this. I can speak for my experience. Okay for me. I looked at my teammates as my brother. So that's just the way I saw. I didn't think of what their race was. At the time we ate together we slept together. We practiced together. We want together. We lost together. We cried together. We celebrated together. It was all about one unit for one common goal and that was to win now just because I feel that way in. Tom Feels that way. Marcellus and Jason feel that way. Does it mean that we do not acknowledge some of the challenges that some of our brothers had to get to the NFL. It doesn't mean that we're not aware of some of the racial issues that still exists in this country and it doesn't mean that we are not taking action or have taken action in our past to address those issues whether that be Jason Whitlock Marcellus Wiley. Tom Brady or Chris Spielman so for me. It's all about the awareness the acknowledgement in the action but inside that locker room. That was my family and anybody that knows me played with me. I hope they felt that way because I was more concerned about the dudes production Beth what I was concerned about. I think that when Tom Brady Talks. He's talking from one of the best football coach. Irs that we've ever seen in pro sports the New England patriots. I can certainly say that in my football experience and just talking to my friends. All of us were aware things on our sports teams. Were not perfect. Were there some guys? We didn't get along with along racial lines on the team. Were there some coaches and some experiences that we may have seen firsthand that we thought were hold on. What is the driving force behind that behavior from a coach an administrator whatever and we questioned it along racial lines no question sports teams are just like the rest of America where I will disagree with people like the SP nation article and some of the other people that are critical of Tom? Brady or football or sports. In general is sports does a better job of handling these issues than the rest of society. And that's not same sports or perfect but when you put a group of guys in a room from different backgrounds different economic situation's different races different religions. And you put that goal out there. Hey man you have to do your job in order for me to have success and I have to do my job in order for you to have success and for this team to have success a lot of the differences disappear and a lot of the decision making where people might give into their biases. A lot of that disappears and people do the right thing. I can certainly from just my mediocre college career at Ball State can point to some things that I thought. Were unfair along racial lines. I can say that about the rest of society. I could say that about things that went on in the classroom things that went on at any in any walk of life but can. I also say that sports and our team dealt with better than the rest of society. And that's what I think Tom. Brady's really getting at that. The great teams deal with those issues better than anybody else. That's where I think he's actually saying ourselves. Yeah and that's why I think what he said was aspirational as well as accurate. Because you don't have a better option out there in the world where you can show that the integration occurs and it happens naturally like a dozen locker room and it's a different dynamic. You GotTa think about it all there to do a job so no matter what. Your situation is what prioritizes all of us coming together is the fact that we have a job to do and it's the job that is going to be done. Only if you think of it as something greater than yourself you can't achieve it by yourself. You can't achieve a win you can't achieve a contract you can't achieve anything in that. Locker Room Solo. You need the help of others. So because it's the interdependent situation we actually learn to live and learn from each other because we need each other to bill. Whatever we're going to build in the real world half the time you don't even have that physical integration and if you do you don't have their realistic authentic interaction like you. Doing the locker room in the locker room is no holds. Barred from your Mama to your kids to your family to your background your religion to gender to your sexual preference. Everything's on full display in conversation and I'm not saying it's perfect but is better than alternative. Which is this real world where trust me is not as good and as real as their locker room is well. I think the other thing too. Marseils and Jason Inside of locker rooms. You know what we have usually amongst the players. We have great communication. I got a problem with Marcellus Wiley. I had no problem coming up. Marcellus Wiley and saying this is the problem. I'm not attacking you attacking the person in the great thing that locker rooms of top me as that we learn to talk to people and not over people so you direct problems head on and that's the beautiful thing about a locker room because of the fact that we have one common goal one common purpose and one common mission to accomplish something to gather and has opposed to everybody going off on her own separate agendas usually usually not all the but usually people will talk to each other. Tell me how I can help you. Then you tell me and I'll tell you what I can do or need from you to help me when you have that type of communication great things happen and you not only don't see as much race but what you do see. Is your brother or your teammate. Or somebody that you're willing to put it on the line for that's my experience. It always has been always will be at. That's the beauty of an locker room. WanNa move on. We've got to be a little quicker here. Don't have as much time Daniel. Jeremiah of the NFL that we're one of their draft experts former scout for the Baltimore. Ravens made a little news yesterday by suggesting that Tom Brady played for the Baltimore Ravens. Rather than the New England Patriots Brady would've won ten super bowls instead of six during his career. Jeremiah's contention is the ravens had more talent than the New England patriots. Marcellus is this a ridiculous claim? Yeah it's ridiculous we're trying to Frankenstein a situation to to take what was already beyond fantasy. Which is winning six super bowls. Take it to some insane place. Where you're all another roster you would have won ten and play enough. Thought experiment is sounds fun but in reality it doesn't land. One thing is thrown off from the Ravens equation or the Patriots equation. Everything is different case in point last year with the Ravens Lamar Jackson them going out there and winning fourteen games and they get into the playoffs and one small detail was different about that team the injury to mark Ingram and that changed the entire complexion of their team and everything worked. You Insert Tom Brady on the Ravens and say nothing else is going to change. You don't know the game of football or sports in general. I think that this is insane. This dude ICUs. I'm digging the Frankenstein reference man. That's beautiful when I when I look at this front from my perspective. The one thing I learned about when evaluating or during a game with Tom Brady. I'm never going to put limits on that guy because what he's doing it. Forty two is Barack so to say he would or would not win ten super bowls. I don't know I think it's very difficult because of the parody of the NFL and there's so many things that go into winning and losing the number one thing number. One factor in my opinion is that you have to be healthy as a team. What is the Locker Room? Dynamic within that team Marcellus hit it. Of course the importance of what a running game means to a quarterback than we can't forget although I have great respect and think he's a tremendous coach John Harbaugh. We can't take away what Bill Belichick has meant to the New England Patriots for all their super bowl run so I think Tom has done Barack list. I don't put anything past them. But the say ten. That's a little tough to get around. Yeah I think it's far fetched. I'M NOT GONNA go ridiculous. I think his comments are disrespectful to bill. Belichick I get where he's coming from Bo Ray Lewis and that defense at a great culture the second best culture I think during Brady's career was Baltimore with Ray Lewis and so I get where he's coming from a Chris before we get out of here you're one of the most charitable individuals in all of sports. You did great things. You've done great things for your wife and now you're doing great things for people with the corona virus and selling all of your memorabilia and donated corona virus. Where'd this come from well because I I believe that God has blessed me and I'm a person where my faith teaches me? A faith without deeds is a faith that is dead so we decided to do is take try to raise forty thousand dollars from selling by memorabilia and for each week for the next forty weeks. We're going to donate a partner friend of mine. Bruce Lee are GonNA donate a thousand dollars each and every week the four different people two hundred fifty dollars a piece and at the very least will be able to buy groceries for them. But I believe I've been called to do that. God has given me the ability. The means and the awareness the see where action is needed and we're action is needed. Action needs to be taken and this is something that is a true gift that I'm able to be able to help somebody and I've been so grateful and so blessed it's time to give back because my philosophy has always been in this life though matter what it is what you give or grow in which you keep you lose if you give compassionate if you give love to give understanding that grows and spreads and prospers if you keep all that stuff to yourself. I promise you it will dry and die guaranteed so keep giving away and guess what it comes back some way somehow gray message. Thanks for joining us. I'm Burnin Davis.

I'M GONNA take it one day to cap you know. I can't say I'm going to move back because I you know I haven't done so I wanted to stay tuned and gets work on the rest of my the rest of my career with next and for me. I feel like Television acting is been a lot of fun to me. I've been putting the work in the is dedicate myself to the crash and make you get better and actor so take it one day climbing. Continue to keep working. Where did this dream of being an actor? Come from what sparked that When I made at the University of Maryland are then when I went to thank you so I won't try to shelter in theater bar. And that's where I fell in love with the world of acting and I started to pursue it a little bit at a time for the cotton is when you play football. You have to put so much time in football and you can't really ensue acting career because it's just too announce delve into it and continue to just keep going and working on the crap read that you were inspired by Kobe Bryant. I would think you'd be inspired by the Rock Kobe. Why not the Rock and over long ago to build made a relationship with him? That was pretty cool and just learning this learning. And and now you talking about San Francisco earlier and we. We were talking about Colin Kaepernick as he came up in an interview with Tom. Brady just want to ask you like player to player when you were there especially during the good years with Colin Kaepernick on the field. Did you see this activism? Coming from him no no. I didn't see that you couldn't see it. I mean he was. Just what at that time? Kapernick was I mean. He was playing at the highest level possible then. He had two little declined to where he wasn't doing so well and again after that. That's all came about outdone about the Denver that year. Twenty fifty I left him got traded to when I was there. That's when all of these starting to come out and I totally didn't expect it. It was just something that Katie from left. Beal amount of nowhere. I WANNA bring up another conversation in sports moral. Cj mccollum made headlines saying he thinks that a third of the NBA players are living paycheck to paycheck. You just retired from the NFL. The you think that a third of the NFL players are living paycheck to paycheck. Been a history of that money back to like these avid get smarter to go a better job. Taking care that Phones putting the right people in healthcare so I can't really say Bach Billy that that That's happening but I I hope not afraid that everyone is doing really well taken care of their finances that they're continuing to evolve and Being proactive in the asset. Listen I know one guy. That's not living paycheck to paycheck. And that's your former teammate. Peyton manning he keeps turning down money to be a broadcaster. What do you think Peyton manning wants to? Do you know what I don't know. Maybe he wants to be an act. If people in Agra won't get caught me buddy again. I don't know what he wants to be but I figured by now he's just taking it easy and taking it slow but overtime really figured out that. Maybe it is broadcasting a vernal. We're going to wrap up the interview. One final question. We're having a little technical difficulty. I'm GONNA stay on Peyton. Manning peyton manning would he be a better head football coach or a better? Nfl executive better NFL Beckett. Boy that because when I was playing with Peyton when Denver He wa. He took over those needed. He was he knows exactly what was going on and it seemed that he was you know he was. John Elderly in a sense. And when you do that bad I mean you're you're above and beyond just being Involved with football on on on the field level you have to be innocent. The guy that's got what you coach and he won't give that expand trickle down to the locker room for the players the coaches and he could help somebody burn. Thank you so much for the time. Really enjoy coming out to your crib. Good luck with your acting career. Tell your brother. Good luck as well in his retirement. Are WE'RE GONNA keep it Movin here on. Speak for yourself from the career. We'RE GONNA go out to the bay area touch base with rhythm euchre and talk about Lebron James's latest project his documentary about his. I Promise School. Speak for yourself from the crib to speak for yourself from the crib presented by Hyundai. Jason woodlock Marcellus Wiley on this wonderful Thursday afternoon day before Friday. I let's go out to the bay area and Ric Bucher is GonNa join us from his crib. Rick welcome aboard. Let's move to Lebron James and his I promise school in the Akron area Lebron's received quite a bit of fanfare for opening the score and using part of his foundations money to help fund school along with the State of Ohio. Lebron has now put out a documentary over quimby a series of short eight ten minute short feature stories that they're calling a documentary about the I promise school. Let's take a look at it clip. Lebron posted on his instagram page. This week interest the past two weeks. It's the third hour we tell them. We're going through another homelessness. Europe said report shelter other nights hotel not yet last time. I for an hour and forty five minutes before I could get into. The scary part is ramming his head against the wall lakes. You know it's just the summer harm. Abroad obviously has millions of social media followers. I'm not a fan of this. I'm not a fan of documentary and I'm certainly not a fan of putting that kid out there in this way is the third or fourth grader. I think what Lebron has done and contributing money to the I promise school lending his name. I think all of that is great. I don't like putting these kids and their struggles on public display. When they're just third or fourth graders. I think it's too early for documentary. I'm disappointed by this and again I think what Lebron's trying to do here is great but I'm just not sure every kid needs to be a reality. Tv Show particularly when they're struggling in this manner. And I understand your sentiment in terms of exposing the kids who the whole goal of I promises to actually help these kids so where they can go from a mindset in the reality of surviving to thriving so why expose the kid when that kid can turn over a new leaf and actually do the things that we all desire them to do. So I respect what you said. The same time is is very difficult to have effective change without a brutal honest confrontation of the reality. The hardest pill for all of us to swallow in this world is reality and as we had Chris Filming on talking about the Locker Room. The fact that why that's such a special place because I'm in the real world and I've been in the locker room is that we get issues handled because we directly confront the issue at had and hearing about something is not as impactful as seeing and for those who criticize seeing it hard. Criticize you in wonder. How much are you really trying to change it? A lot of people can hear someone's plight loud people hurt my plight my story before but walk in my shoes or lease. Let me get you as close. Virtually as you can to walk in my shoes I think I hit you at a different place in your heart and I think that was the intention of this documentary. You both make great points. The distinction for me is our selous. You're an adult and we've seen the width and breadth of your story. So we saw the beginning and we saw and we've seen the end. This hits close to home for me because I had experience with my son where he may. He was probably the same ages. The kid in Lebron's instagram post and he made two free throws in middle school to win a game and I posted it. I had a video of it. I posted it on instagram and said how proud I was of him for a multitude of reasons and he came to me and he said Dad. I wish you would ask me before you posted that and what it made me realize that he knows every kid. This age is that kid. No no doubt does. Is that no matter. What you put out there Social media it can be a cruel vicious place and this was a positive for my son and far fewer people seeing it. I can't help but think about there are more than almost five million people who saw this kid in his worst moment and is it really worth putting it out there as a journalist. I often have to tell stories about people in their hardships and it can be difficult. And sometimes they don't necessarily love having that story out there but I've never done it with kid and that's the part that I just can't get past. That is a Gut Punch to me is to think about what that kid has to deal with because more than five million people out there saw him in this moment. And if there's a happy ending to this then maybe it's worthwhile but we don't know that yet yeah. I think like the greatest sports documentary that I can ever remember as Hoop Dreams and Hoop Dreams was filmed over. Like a ten year period of very long period and by the time it came out the kids that they were showing growing up were adults and they could you know deal with the ramifications. Fall out of this. I'm even now just even having this conversation thinking about. When I was a newspaper journalist and Kansas City we had a high school feeding running back that was you know everybody thought five star is going to be this huge deal and they wrote about him as a sixteen or seventeen year old and he was dating a grown woman at the time or twenty twenty one year old and I just thought it was. I wall we don't need. This is a kid this the teenager. We don't need to be putting his business out on the street in this fashion and when I looked at third or fourth grader and I just think about how kids being kids and how cruel they are and how they liked to tease. I just wouldn't want this kid captured in this way and I know again Lebron's intentions. I think we're positive. He put out a supportive message. A we're with you or something with the I. Polls trying to support the kid. I just don't think this is the way to do it. Kids need the opportunity to fail and have problems in private not shared with the world. Well that's very difficult to do. When you think about the condition that really is enabling this situation to even be a reality and that is not private but it's not getting properly discuss so I think the brand is actually coming from a place where he's inspire to share this story to his fire others as he was as fire to even open up the school in Cleveland. You think about it. Jalen rose hat is Academy in Detroit. And I remember that landing would me and I'm sure Orlando Will Lebron in terms of telling this story of these kids and it is fires you to do something for yourself and your condition and this condition. The class were kids from this part of Akron. The issue is is going to eat his own. So I understand the privacy of this kid that needs to be fully respected. But if you don't change the conditions are you gonNa do is more kids into that fire to be disposed of and I think that Lebron had to say the greater good is to show the plight of this condition and maybe did make him. Put this compromise position. Unfortunately but it's still a greater good. I I get that and I do agree. It's a noble cause. And sometimes the motivate people we have to put difficult scenes and pictures and images out there but again we're in a world today. Where did that kid sign up for that? I love that the school is trying to help him. I hope that it does. And it's terrific. That Lebron is providing that for that kid but does coming along with that being an advertisement for the ills of society. Just don't even if the kid or the kids parents consented to it. Sometimes we have to step back and say is this really in the best interests. And what's our ultimate motive and if it's helping the kid I'm not convinced that putting those putting that scene out there for him without any other positive scenes anything else is really what we're all after. Well I I would tend to think they probably put out some positive bill. I think it's too early for a documentary on the promise school. We won't know for five six maybe ten years if it's successful and I think we're gonNA shine a spotlight. Let's shine a spotlight on the parents. Because I guarantee you and again I don't know what's going on with this kid. I have no idea. But whatever's going on with kids generally as a reflection of what's going on with their parents and the adults in their life. Let's put the spotlight there. Maybe we can change some behavior. They're I stick around. Lavar Arrington go his crib and get back to the NFL. From the CRIB. Jason Woodlock Marcellus Wiley happy Thursday afternoon. Let's get up to Lavar ARRINGTON CRIB in Pasadena. All right and let's move to our big story of the day brought to you by KFC and they're twenty dollars fill ups you can order online a KFC dot com are rex. Ryan taking some more heat From players around the League and critics and Gino Smith in particular wreck said that he'd love to see bill trait. Try to win. All those Super Bowls in playoff games with Gino Smith and quarterback. Gino Smith took offense to this. That I ask you Marceau's now. This is the second time Rex's been in the news of late taking shots at current. Nfl players. You got a problem with Rex Ryan here throwing onto the bus not really a baby problem of Rex Ryan finding his lane. It seems like he's found his voice which is just to go out anybody that makes them look and sound better and he tried to do that. With Amari Cooper met. That wasn't a proper fight. That wasn't the right weight class so he slid down a couple of tears. Left those pro bowl wide receivers highly paid players our bit and found what he wanted. Which is Gino Smith? Who let's be real? Does it have much of an argument against REX. Ryan terms of his production. And how you played Gino. Don't take this to heart big dog because I don't either whenever someone says your name and how that rings in terms of your career you had a large part in how sounds so if someone says Marcellus Wiley and then I'm like what were you doing taking a shot at me and I'm like oh I gotta go back to the mirror and look how good was our was. Our great was Kinda good was I. And if you're Gino Smith. Look you're better than ninety nine percent of the people walking this planet even as a backup quarterback in the league making millions of dollars in relative world is forcing football. Geno SMITH IS A TARGET. Gina Smith will continue to be a target lists. He gets himself in the starting lineup and guests on that field and put some numbers. It's just reality now. I don't like that I have an issue with it. Because you're hurt. Your head. Coach is supposed to be Especially as a quarterback relationship is supposed to be that of a trusting relationship. Even if it's after the fact you know what if? What if Gino Smith started doing interviews and said man imagine trying to win with Rex Ryan as as your head coach? Good luck with that when you look at Gino Smith. He's a part of what it is that the picture that was painted in terms of production that success. But let's be real here. Gino Smith was much more coveted player coming prospect coming into the NFL then. Tom Brady what Gino Smith had an amazing college football career. One could sit there and say if Gino Smith had better development like A. Tom Brady did then. He would have been most likely in a conversation. Different than the one is now. Imagine if Tom Brady was drafted by Wrench Ryan and New York for the jets. Are we talking about Tom? Brady do we know who Tom Brady? Is Tom Brady a household name and the goat of all time playing football so I have an issue with it because was Goo good for the goose is good for the Gander? If you're going to sit there and take like unnecessary shots at somebody. That was your player. Then you had better be Accountable or Puerto Role that you play in his shortcomings as professional Lamar. I've got to ask this question. I'm just sorry you do know. We're in April. It's not Christmas. The Christmas Lights Champagne Room. You're doing this from what the Hell is one on the aaronson household. Christmas is down yet. A what what from a Natto came from Annapolis. So it's not ghetto. It's actually uppercrust society when you live near water. Generally lights like this hanging around different Windows that outlook overlook the water? So it's just China like creating a feeling of Wada. Now now we're in limited. Let me say this about we can let me say this about Rex Ryan I all the way back to myself. Wrexham's finding his voice Wrexham's finest voices a broadcaster. He's GonNa be outspoken. He wants to be the Charles Barkley of football. This is like last year at some point. People were criticizing Paul peers because he kept saying things that they thought were outlandish and I was like man at least. We're talking about Paul Peers. And at least he saying something. That's getting our attention and I don't think what Rex Ryan said here is so far fetched an outside beyond the. Pale is not a personal shot. Like his third comment about Amari Cooper this just wrecks to me and I applaud him because too many times. We'll see coach. Get ON TV. And they're always thinking about all. I want to get back into the NFL. I WANNA make sure I don't offend anybody. I don't want any player or any coach to have a problem with me to me. This is an indication. Rex is fully committed to being a broadcaster and I applaud that and his employer should applaud. That I don't think we have time to move to another topic so myself. You GotTa follow up on REX. Ryan added. Yeah Man Look. I'm a former player myself with Dan. We need to put our egos in check if so one K. Call you sorry because you were sorry. Like you've thrown more interceptions than touchdowns you through fifty seven. Percents percentage guess what that was a sorry numbers. It's okay big dog. You want him to go up there and talk glowingly about Gino Smith who will look Rex Ryan the same if he went up there and talk great about him so I think this is really just a checkup for anybody in any walk of life. We're we're talking about the act not the act door. We're talking about trump reduction. Can you please not wrap your identity into what you produce because who you are not exactly how you are and how you as a starting quarterback not that good but who you are. Gino Smith is amazing but damn everybody thinks they are the football. So if you don't say great things about me be- sorry wrong with Chu. I looked in the mirror. I had great years SAR years and I'm fine with both of you can't do that then. It Ain't no Rex Ryan breast on you. It's all funding. Good and made sense is if that was the sole reason as the why Rex Ryan made that statement. But if you look at the entirety statement. Rex was saying that top radio was more the reason why New England one versus the coach and Bill Belichick. So you're taking a bill belichick and you're taking a shot at Gino Smith and you're taking a shot at Gino Smith. Where the simple fact that you're trying to. Asana rate yourself from any culpability. Liabilities connected to Gino Smith spell your as an NFL quarterback. I don't like that if you're saying he's sorry and it's just a marriage. He was sorry that's fine but he was doing that to say. Hey if I had Tom Brady Abby Bill Belichick to know you. I'm glad you found your boys as a media personality. That's all right. Let that you can sit there and say that Tinos Him. It was sorry as a quarterback. Tom Brady is the man. I three shade all of that but take some responsibility over your part in it. You were sorry as a coach if Gino Smith was sorry as a player. And that's probably why you're finding your boys as a media personality right now sitting with me and my life behind me dawn. Tv bottom line lavar. That's my grandmother Mama. She had the same. Shared the same drapes as you. So filling in about that. I got a good Janice Radi on the Brian. James Yourself from the Crib Jason Whitlock Marcellus Wiley. It is almost Friday. I can taste it. Let's go out to uncle. Jimmy's crib very serious local face. You're wearing military garb. Where are you going with this? We're doing an approval rating on Lebron. James put out a documentary. The I promise documentary. I didn't like it. He showed little kid crying and whining. I don't think it's a good. Look your thoughts first of all. Let me say that I have no problem with what Lebron James Doing. Let me say that. I have no problem with the documentary. Okay caused the fact is the struggles real. Okay now. I do question the timing of the release of this documentary. Okay because right now man. It's not just kids this lockdown. But everybody's locked down in the house. Okay and the temperatures starting to rise in the house and I'm just GonNa be honest at this time right now. Man Ain't nobody got no time for crying little kid right now. Okay now if that hurts your feeling right now I'm sorry okay. I'm sorry to children. Raised these south past little kids right now but right now we ain't got no time for no crying asks little kid it's all over. The world is looking at kids in the face. Saying shut the hell up.

Steve Nash Hired in Brooklyn, Belichick & Cam, Clippers Win Game 1

"Woman to speak for yourself pursuit about holidays. Soga thing chess show Marcellus. Back I. Guess Manual Otto Dog are dressing rooms right next to each other. So I heard a fanfare wearing a day. I'm getting my summer colors I see that a lot of hype I don't think they. Know The guy let's get it going with the Brooklyn. Nets were nets higher steve to be their new head coach Nasser Hall of Fame Player. But he has no previous experience. The higher has some call ended won't white privileged, which is basically getting advantages over other races because of the color of your skin. But later odd twist it was also referred to as quote lack privilege since Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving use their families to get the coast they wanted. A lot to unpack here. But Steve Nass hire an example of white privilege. No, it's not. There's so many ways and avenues I could go but let me just speak from the heart and start with this one. We're using volatile terms like why white privilege or terms we may not hear often like black privilege we have to establish one thing and one. Thing I the decision made it has to have been made based on the adjective that precedes the word privilege. That's the only way that it can be white privileged black privilege. The decision made must have been made on the adjective that precedes the word privilege. So what are you talking about auto doesn't a frequent English class that adjective white with Steve, Nash hired. Because he is white and the answer is no. The last eight head coaches that were hired former players without coaching experience four of those eight have been black. The last five, three of those five have been black but then Marcellus heard something that was even more ludicrous. Well, he was hired by two black superstar players and Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant. So is that not black privilege? Remember what is the word that precedes privilege black where he was Steve Nass hired because they were black no, he wasn't hired because Katie and Kyrie. Your black, he was hired because they were superstars. And their privilege in that instance would be superstars whether they was white superstars as a relevant they're superstars, and so they had that sort of power. We have to be careful Marcellus when talking about terms serious matters like these of throwing out words like he was hired white privilege because then it's like the boy who cried, Wolf, you can't always just play that card when the card has no means to be on the table. A love it I agree with you. He was not hired because of white privilege we'll get into I guess. A more pure understanding observation definition. Later in his block right now, let's just talk about Steve Nash now. The coach of the Brooklyn Nets and it's unfortunate that he has the now live under this cloud this shadow. Of White Privilege despite being a two time MVP hall of Fame Point Guard with tremendous relationships if you ever spoke to him like I have other mazing acumen. Amazing humility and amazing ability to communicate to express what he knows in his head about the game of basketball to those he works with they call them Kevin. Durant Yoda. Working with Kevin Durant having that relationship right here, and you talked about some of the statistics I don't like to get too far afield with my opinion unless I support it with the facts and reality since nineteen, seventy eight. Nine of the sixteen coaches who have become NBA coaches without previous head coach experienced nine more than half. Black. Derek Fisher of the Knicks we are in a position where if tight lou into the Lakers like Nah I, don't want that job but now it's hi Lou probably to the Sixers, right? And we're going to sit here. Now try to really trivialize this higher because it was Stephen Acn and what others are saying about this is white privilege. I know merit of this being white privilege put up with like to discuss probably a little deeper about what white privilege. Well, let's dive in because again, this is such a serious topic both in sports and now sports that. Marcellus we can't take this lightly again if you're gonNA talk about White Privilege I've previously said it's not saying that you life hasn't been hard to sing skin color having contributed to the difficulty of your life but Steve Nash Higher has nothing to do with skin color. We don't even have to look at any other NBA team Marcellus we don't have to look at any other. Previous generations look at the nets remember they hire Jason Kidd after winning nearly fifty games. They hired him to replace in full-time Johnson another black head coach that team had guard nets it had Darren. Williams if I'm not if I'm not mistaken head call Pearson was a team that was supposed to win big time games hired a coach Black Coach no previous coaching experience, Steve Nash you can make a very strong convincing argument that he accomplished more as a player been Jason Kidd did although Jason Kidd did win an NBA championship. But outside that championship, you can make the argument Steve Nash accomplish more so if we're going to make Ludicrous to a degree statements like this if we're GONNA make outrageous statements, it just has to be backed by empirical data but the problem is the empirical data doesn't show that it's white privilege. Our opinions can't really state with reason that it's white privilege and so alternately, you can end up undermining 'cause. Marcellus. When you do play, we being real when you do play the race card if that car don't even need to be belong in this game. I don't think that the car needs to be applied in this game or any games. At all I don't believe in white privilege and I know that people will say, what are you talking about the me explain the conversation with White Privilege is a distraction that leaves racism and true power intact while you now attack it from social and other psychological measures trying to pull on the emotions of white people. And try to get them into. Britain trying to say that all the things that they have inherited all the things that have worked for our accumulated. Had some percentage of it to be based on their skin. Does that that's a fact though I don't know if that's an opinion. No, that's what is supposed to say. Okay. We got to look at the devils in the details SATOMI. There's so many white people walk around here right now that had no connection to slavery had no connection to our ill passed and are not benefiting from their skin color because if on his merits white privilege would make you assume that everyone white privilege, arly go-between go-between hostels day. That's a great going over. That is look at the let's look at the poverty raise. Numbers point do we really want to go the point the point you're making it a phenomenal point because this is where so many people, Marcellus Mr Mark, and which is why I had a very big issue with someone claiming that this was black privilege right? If we're just talking about privilege that is different and this is what people I'm glad you brought that up because this is. What people need to understand like if you're just talking about privilege that's different not every person is privileged right privilege. If you're just taking the basic assumption privileged by dictionary definition is talking about you are not punished or you are more highly accepted based upon something. Now, when we just talk Lucy about privilege that's talking about Oh status. So to speak when you're talking about black privilege which. An analyst well, that's to say that because you're black, you have benefits in America that doesn't happen that often but like you say, you take a plane somewhere like go to Nigeria where my peoples from black privilege exists. What we're talking about their for being white privilege is saying based on the color of your skin. You may be omitted from certain severity of punishment or based on the color of your skin. You may be accelerated to some degree of accomplishment. So I, think there has to be a delineation a huge delineation between privilege. And black privileged white privilege. Any CEO privilege who'd privilege any other types of privileges if me you growing up, say we grew up in the same era. If I roll which Compton I, ain't got that privilege I grew up in Dallas you feel me. So marcellus is going to benefit from growing up in the hood proverbially speaking over me because there can also be hud privilege the privileges just dependent upon what comes before that word, which is why this is so asinine because Steve Nash wasn't hired based on the color of his skin I love you but I, don't feel you. Just heard right there is either A. The phrasing is wrong. White privilege because it doesn't apply to white all white people. Or be maybe he doesn't really have any merit. So either you miss termed it or it really doesn't have a place. Now let's get to the this. Get to the evolution of this phrasing of white privilege of some say. W.. E.. D. Boys going back to those days in the sixties but. I looked it up and Laura Tenney nineteen eighty nine is the first time really entered the lexicon white because I remember growing up I never heard anybody talking about white privilege. But now it's the thing to talk about is the thing to elicit out of people especially white people and what you're saying it doesn't apply to all white people. So white privilege doesn't white. White privilege dot privilege does and then it takes me to. Just, tell me white people had a poor. People who don't get the benefit of the doubt. So it sounds like an a collision course of any social element, any social interaction if there's a tie between another group of black group in the white group that the white person would benefit more. So and I'm saying, are you saying that I'm saying statistically speaking for example, and it's only because I've had to take deep dive into this typically speaking not Amanullah opinion obviously not Marcellus today's depend today's statistically. Statistically. Speaking world person with the black sounding name person with the white sounding name identical resumes person with the white sounding name is twice as likely to get the job than the person with black sounding name. This is not my opinion. This is simply statistics earlier. That's where it lands it's a psychological and social relations. It doesn't land necessarily would just empirical. Numbers in terms of poverty rates and terms of opportunities. Look look at this. If you're a white person and you're like okay I, suppose have all this privilege race and class says they're integrated. We can't separate the two but then white people find themselves being outpaced in terms of education being outpaced in terms of income but many groups. Let's go in America. Indonesian Pakistani SRI. Lankan. Taiwanese Indian Filipino America's desk just to start now would we say white privilege know what we're trying to say there are some benefits that occur based on race but not just benefits there is remember the two sides is two sides. Of punish correct. Has, decide I'm thing again let's focus focus on what I am saying gays and I'm trying to keep it on topic all at the same time addressing both. On Guitar, not hard to do what I'm saying is just because you are white as not saying your life cannot be hard. That's not what I'm saying. What I'm saying is your skin color is not contributing to the difficulty of your life. For example, in America, what we know is being black being around being other can contribute to the difficulty of your life and we. So look just told you the resumes on, but you WanNa hear another resume my son. Right now five years old goes to a school I walked the halls will billionaires. My son is name is Marcellus. I don't know what you think that sounds like Italian into. The point of it is that's wrong. If I'm going to really use the contrast if I really gonNA give you the opposite effect. It sounds like if you're going to say white privilege but it doesn't really. Capture all the white people always trying to say that the black skin is the same. That black skin being black is also contribute to difficulties because. Nobody wants to go down that road. I'm saying I'm saying not based on your skin I'm saying there are out liars right? There are outliers are an outline and. I'm saying. If the norm. If you said Mexican rue focus work hard nose to the grind all those kind of. principles. Oh. Yes. Yes. Here's a reason I disagree because I like you would like to say the same thing about myself I'd like to say are focused I. Like to say I worked hard. I got my two degrees got another one of my degrees. Not I. Don't believe in luck per se. I believe I was blessed but will say this I will say this that a lot of people work hard. But just because you work hard does not guarantee you success wipe. Greasy. Black people I'm saying a lot of people worked hard but just because you work hard does not guarantee success it just increases your likelihood for success but I grew up east side Austin right so I didn't grow up I was my last ten years I spent Eastside Austin Inside Austin was what was called the Negro District Nineteen, twenty eight that's where all. The black people were subjected to the West. Side of Austin is what you call West Lake. That's where it falls went to high school Baker Mayfield went to high school breeze went to high school West Lake, and Lake Travis, which you could work equally as hard growing up on the east side as you could on the west side the only difference is where. You were put back in the Nineteen Thirties, forties and fifties. If he was black stone, the Negro district on the east side, the person Westlake could work just as hard as a person on each side and they will not end up at the famed destination. That is all I am saying and so that is more of a class conversation then race conversation but. Great I'm glad you what dictated the class the race right. But now that's why I said in member preface by saying now see NASCAR higher yesterday and it's amazing. Every time we talk about these conversations we gotta go rear view mirror because we can't go windshield because we present day we're going to start to poke holes in these same arguments these same conditions. Sick enough. Yeah. Because you're you're doing ooh, you attract dude, I'm attract. Do we call this show? So let's talk sport. Every track meet ends with what race that four, by one, hundred, four, four, hundred, meter relay, the Olympics I was. So devastated, Marcellus, the Olympics got canceled this year because the Olympics my favorite event, every four years. But what I know about that four by four relay for y'all watching this joint, the four by four, hundred meter relay every person runs one lap every person, all four people they run one lap and you hand that baton off to the next person then they take that baton and they run and they run and they handed off to the next person and they run they run and they handed off to the next person well, everybody runs one lap. This success you have in that race is predicated upon who ran that latte before you right and so I get to run the same lap that Marcellus guests to run in that figurative lap is our lifetime. But how I finish is not independent upon how fast Iran it is actually dependent upon how fast the person before me run. So when we talk about privilege black privileged white privilege, any type of privilege, we can't just look in an. Isolated, incubated instance of well right now with sequel. So everything is equal. We have to remember people ran before us. Glad you said that so since you're not going to have the present day argument with me because even you have to admit not really supporting white privilege to the fullest as it has in the past, how did they get this league? Let's go back and I could play with you and your terms and context. Let's go into pass. Dogs stokes of Exeter University points out stigmatizing an entire the group because of the sins of a small minority is a textbook example of racism. The same thing we're fighting against is the same thing we're going to do in terms of say white privilege over that. All of Y'all not even wants ones today. Well, let's go back in time. 'cause you gotTa League because of it, let's go back to eighteen sixty when less than five percent of whites in the American south own slaves less than five percent ended. GonNa. Brag about a lesson I present I won't even say what ought facts you took it as I'm just telling you that over ninety five percent of the people had no investment or economic interest in the maintenance of slavery all trying to say is not a fan of blanket statements fair. And what happened was DNA and many others is they're trying to apply a blanket thing right to a nuance situation when you're talking about who gets hired, you get hired for a lot of the game within game as much as just your merits and so what I am not being trivialised and triggered to do is make blanket statements when I'm not GonNa talk about yet these sales of soda. He here is the issue I think with all of this so many things Marcellus or connected we you and I we can talk so many sports. So let's talk football and we'll revert back to basketball football believe thirty, two NFL head coaches, and if I'm not mistaken three of them are black. That's not a coincidence it's not a coincidence walk. I can tell you I well, I think a couple of things. I think we said this before, which is one cronyism, the definition cronyism you hire friends nepotism essentially, you hire family if historically speaking NFL head coaches, NFL ownership nfl management has historically been white and you don't necessarily hyper base higher based off of meritocracy you hire based off friends family and historically you have been white then you will hire family, which is white or friends, which is typically white, and then the NBA like Stephen A. Alluded to it. This is I agree with five percent of what he said, but the end where you're pregnant about five percent. Five percent of what he said, but the NBA had four black head coaches are currently to. Fire along McMillan he got fired as well. I'm just saying I don't think that is coincidence if you're talking about leagues that have historically been white and you were hiring based off nepotism and cronyism, then you will hire those that look like you. I just can't sit here and say Oh yes, it's just coincidence that five percent or ten percent of NFL. Or Black even though seventy point four percent of the players are black. I just don't believe in that kind of sheer math. Yeah. No I I WANNA just in my side of this by saying, you also can only choose from what's available and Being here as former athletes less not lie to the people that a lot of us former athletes choose to camera over the whistle and to choose the camera. No, you can't argue that. Era. Camera over the. and to prepare for your necks, you have to do it in the now too many of us players don't WanNa get into coaching by and large in general. Don't think that's the case. Let's bring it back to Steve Nash Nash. How dare he proved that it's not white privilege proved that more black coaches have gotten an opportunity without experienced and white coaches. Now, let's talk about the camera versus the whistle. You're talking about the NBA where coach where all the black coaches. A lot more sitting at desks. Charles Barkley. So Chill O.`Neil Cheney Smith jalen Rose Jay Williams Richard Jefferson catered Purple Perkins I could keep going now how many Indiana's order? is in that choice and that volume of opportunity we are not putting our. Air. But also status because USAA NFL? Yes. You and I are a testament I let me speak guy or a testament to breaking out of a mold. Here's what I mean by that and okay. As soon as I got out of ball I was an analyst like you did you started off as an analyst before host yeah Houston responded. All right. We were corresponding new analysts we were doing it we've pay dues, but if you're not careful Player. Will be boxed into an analyst role because that is what they perceive you to be and they try to perceive your limitations is only being analysts. Remember I might miss speak here but you and I should be the to the first pair of national former players that are also hosting their own show. That is why I say you win by at least I will say that we outlying years saying that if you let people put you in. A box, you will exist inside that box you transcended beyond that box because you worked hard. You're incredibly intelligent, incredibly bright incredibly determined. I am currently trying to transcend beyond that box because of the same things however, that box doesn't exist, and if you let them, put you when it they will. That's my only maintain I respect that. But to climb the Pyramid of success where most of the room and most of the people at the bottom. Those attributes you just listed are not out liars those are mandatory up there. Correct and that's what we ought to keep in context coming up at the top of our the bronze as was called out on social media and he clapback in a big way, we'll tell you if we liked it for I cam Newton was finally named starting quarterback in New England. We'll tell you Bill Bella tickets fully committed to mets for yourself presented by Sunday Oh.

Now, we are less than a week away from the start of the NFL season. Let's go and Cam. Newton was finally named starting quarterback in new. England teammates also voted him as one of the team captains and earlier this week head coach robotech phrase this new quarterback saying quote nobody works harder than cameras welcome in La. Lombardo see my brother Marcellus. I do it I. Do you think Bill Belichick is fully committed to news fully committed to Cam Newton absolutely a bill belichick has been. Or they say is tolls have been curled by Cam Newton just coming into can't. Remind Yourself. This is this is June twenty eighth. He was signed July eighth signed contract that fast now only Cam Newton to starting quarterback but one of the offense of team captains and he's done it the right way the way you always have to do it by grind and putting your work in and have a tremendous energy listen to bill belichick when he says Cam Newton works on things but not just the things he's good. At the things he's bad at my coaches to tell us that in like junior high school work on your left hand layups water does that things that you're not so good at and that's what Cam Newton is doing and make an impression on bill belichick he says can wants to be first in everything not just on the field but everything, and let's talk about Cam Newton in his first opportunities when he goes somewhere fool screened. In his first year starting with a new team, let's go back to college. What do you want a national championship didn't Arbor? What do you do? When Heisman Trophy National Championship Carolina Panthers wanting to break NFL rookie record for passing yards, total yards and touchdowns. You'll have to agree with me. You'll have to like Cam Newton will bill checkers in love with Cam Newton and everything he's seen and it's only been two months and the sky's the limit. Is Bella. Check fully committed. This reminds me of two thousand and seven. I'll take a trip to the University of Texas. I drive down I thirty from Dallas Texas where I'm born and raised to Austin Texas I'm sitting Austin a West Central. Here we go. into. The central. So I'm sitting in Matt Brown College, Football Hall of Fame Head Coach Mack Brown's office head coach time and he looks at me I got my brother to me got my parents to my right mack Brown says, Acho. We want to offer you a scholarship to the University of Texas. Will you commit I look at them and I'm like I can't commit because I had other options I was trying to go to Michigan. You see I wasn't fully committed Marcellus because I had other options we'll check is in fact fully committed not necessarily because he wants to be fully committed, but they`ll Got? No other options we commit to Jerry? Did them can't do that Brian Hoyer Owens seven in his last seven starts. So we'll check looking around like okay I got Cam. Cam. Does look really good cameras promising but I ain't got nobody else. So you know what a ball lean because he has no other person or no other place to be all in into he is fully committed I do think Cam Ken and will ball I'm not convinced Bill Belichick is fully committed completely on his own innate desire as opposed to because there are no other options but nonetheless to answer the question Bella check fully in. Okay. Yes he is certainly fool. Leave. Hey Twenty hindsight I gotta give you guys credit and I gotta give. Bill Belichick credit for this. He understood the presence and the impact of Cam Newton look at him on his right here. The amount of confidence that he had a gone through his his exercises has warm ups. He came in and you know what Bill Check said I'm in need of a undisputed leader. The day he brought Cam and he had the biggest those influential personality. that. Could possibly come in on the team not just at the position not just on the offensive side of the ball. So naturally, yes. Bill Bella check bringing him there knowing what Cam represents was a total buy in and I have to say I was I, was incorrect on assessing the way that I did originally y'all make sure you cut that part I was incorrect on a say want to run. More. It all we. Yeah I try to go with with that Oak Chris Rock, lime. Faithful his. and. Nothing is absolute. Newsworld world that sells right unless the first thing you encounter is the thing you should commit to in the first place like Gerry Adams already on the roster but you go out there and still get a Cam Newton. So I understand that you may have your question marks against a student whose only thrown four NFL passes in his career I get that. But then when you see Cam Newton y'all been there, I will single before and you walk into club and your little early you there about eleven you shouldn't be doing this La we close to. Eleven if you're somebody, they say forget that if I'm paying this much for this. Time getting all three hours in and you ever go in there and eleven o'clock, and you can just see all the people coming in. You start to see the room pack in and then you see her and you like it's only eleven. Plus he looked like. Will be nothing better. That's what she looked like Omar. And his early and never. Commit to put myself out there for the world to see. This is the. But I'll give a damn. What options are 'cause twelve o'clock is coming WanNa talk coming those options. Her Commit to that situation and I am not locked blah. Look I was a sucker for love anyway back to discuss this topic right here. Dynasty, when he years bill spend married to Tom Brady and created a dynasty. Tom Brady departs. The amazing fortune to go from one. MVP, goat in quarterback to another MVP has never happened in football right? The only one I can think of as the forty niners that went from Joe Montana Goat. To. Steve. Who was not an MVP at the time but we lost our mind Tom Whole Steve Young about the killing which she did and which we knew he would but how we're going to be so reluctant, Lavar. Toyota camping. When he starting off at a better place that he was down. Latino. Marcellus help pick. Back goes white privilege. Do here's what it is. Well, everything you painted out May Cam. Newton. Look like a rebound. Okay. You just talking about how Tom. Was In this long relationship with Bill Belichick you said yourself your sucker for love loverboy Sir. What what? What happens after you get out of Wim Long Distance Relationships Marcella you're craving. that. You need some compassion. Somebody to hold you need somebody to talk to complain to whisper sweet nothings in their. Pillow Talk. Talking smart you got me worried now because now you Cam Newton seemed like it's just a rebound like this might not be real. This might just be like you know what I got out of a relationship. Tom Brady he's happy. He's with Bruce Arians. He looks good. Now he lost some weight he worked out he's in the sunshine state I need minds to. I've been to several weddings and a all of them except to divorce you know the tudors still married that the ones that got married met and got married in three months and the other ones that got. Six months, we always get it to this misconception I gotta take time and you got to really know. You like Oh that's it. It's the rap Bella tickets seen enough quarterbacks air great quarterback is why are you gotta go out there dating play the role played a game. That's why you're still single you. Still you're playing a game I'm sure that women saying it to you. Something else something else to consider here fellas is that stood on now becomes a professional backup quarterback. So in this scenario, you better hope that camp can stay healthy and continue to carry this team. stood up could be damaged goods. Now, I mean that could play a little bit on your mental thinking that you're going to be the guy. Comes and then there you go. So hopefully, cam stays healthy and getting that fool by. Hope Cam stays healthy because his what we know you gotTa Healthy Cam with top ten scoring defense like Happening Carolina Twenty, thirteen twelve and four, playoff, two, thousand, fifteen, they go all the way to the Super Bowl. But I'm still not convinced that bill belichick went just desperate looked around to say Gimme dat rebound coming up. Building a super team in Tampa. Oh, you know that's Tom. Brady? And now to call them Golden State Bucks, we'll tell you if the hype train has gone the rails nets. fell presented by Hyundai Hey guys Juju Smith Schuster here probably weird to hear Muniz podcasting. When you're you. See Me do my thing on a field football's a huge part of my life, but there's another thing I. Love. There's only one way to do it while we're on these baby, I love me undies because they're just comfortable overawe I've never had a anouar where I can wear throughout the day and then don't even have to go change into ties to work out I've done I shall work just my undies.

Me Unease has a great offer for all of you guys. First Time purchasers get fifty percent off and free shipping. Go to me on dot com slash sports. That's me dot com slash sports. Go back to speak for yourself John Day let's head the Tampa expectations were already through the roof when the team signed Tom Brady, those expectations got even bigger when the buck signed for net this leak still is tied in Hebron even compared to bucks load it roster to the Golden State Warriors Championship team, but Steph Curry and Kevin Durant. Hebron called them the Golden State book adding some emojis since always have to add a mode you got to remember I. GotTa. Do I do all the top always laughing one doing now once again by the bar. Show Star which you would a golden state bus deliver on hype. No Sir and this is one of them topics. FELLAS. I don't even need my notes because this is just like if the barbershop chopping it up. Top. Dona. Rely. Comments Sex. They're not going to deliver on the heights but because what is the hype? The hype is now this Golden State, bucks remember what Golden State do okay. Let's go back to two thousand sixteen they set the NBA record for most wins in a season the bucks now finish sixteen in Brady's patriots they not about to run the table Golden. State we do know Boston Super. Bowl Tom. Brady's Patriots. We also lost now. So we're well okay what happened after the Golden State team that they went down there and they lost in the NBA finals. Well, they went back to back tips, Tampa Bay likely not going win back to back chips if I'm taking the field or the buccaneers, I gotta take the field the hype is too large. The hype hasn't necessarily outweigh the. Talent. But here's what we're doing and track with me. We're banking on three things number one, a forty, three year old quarterback. We're also banking on number two a tight end who didn't play football last year we're also banking on number three, a head coach who hasn't been to the Super Bowl Oh let me add a fourth thing again. No just coming off top of my head we're. Banking on a running back who team in the Jacksonville Jaguars released. Instead, you know what we have no use for you. Now one man's trash is another man's treasure. So I'm not gonna down for neck because I think for nets dog but we're banking on too many ambiguous and uncertain things for that reason while the bucks will make the playoffs and be legit, the hype will outweigh the accomplishments. You didn't use your. That you know what I'm saying, and now I'm looking at my notes I should say idiot is because boy you smoke my argument. PAYCHECK it is Friday. Every two weeks today's the day. I'M GONNA, make an argument while they are gonNA live up to the hype and this is going to be a simple argument one. You have a fully loaded roster and I know a lot of our focus on office society and we can go through that bore you again but I just did most of that let's talk about the defense. Let's talk about the defense that's emerging. Let's talk about the last eight weeks of the season top five and takeaways third in yards allowed talking about a defense going to actually support the office and talk about. That offense that was thirty points, and then they were third also and Yardage, but they had Davis. Winston with. Turner was we all understand any also had a Russian attack the last three years actually rushing attack lasted the NFL in yards per carry three point seven. So now they have for net Ronald Jones and even the Salva Koi, they have balanced on the office. There was already numbered three and a defense that's emerging to become a top five defense potentially this year. Oh now, what's going to mix those ingredients and give us a special Max What's GONNA come in and ask some brown sugar only? Sugar and his name is Tom Brady Sugar. Shows up and Tom Brady is not just a go Tom. Brady is not just a guy that comes in and it's going to be your leader. He's a cultural enforcer. He's going to come in and say, this is the right way to do these things already worked with guys on the tape Howard talked about how used to run his rouse the wrong way Tom Brady, said, it looks not looking back to the ball to Boston to meet you brethren simple details and was Tom Brady's already helping this offense and help us entire teams ultra mindset. Would be to go stay warriors. If football terms, they have an opportunity, but we never can make the literal translation from basketball to football. That's where I think he went wrong. Remember, a flavor flav. Flay. Don't believe. Can't believe the high blonde this one I'm not going with it. You GotTa think about this if you're trying to compare them to the Katie Golden. State. Warriors. You're about the team had already won championships before Katie Jamie. That crosses Tampa Bay up you don't have the credibility of saying that. Well, we been winning but so now we bring an end Tom Brady we're going to be that much better. So let's just strike the whole Golden State Butts deal out. That's that's allegations comparable though. About think about ninety, nine, two, thousand, and I'm GonNa make this real personal. The football team in Washington, they go ten and six, ninety nine finished first in the NFC east winning the wild car lose to Tampa Bay ironically enough. And they were riding high due to a trait for Ricky Williams Lavar Arrington and Chris Samuels. Comes to Washington DC you. And free. Agency. Sanders Tom Maher terrier. Smith. Ask. Because I did her sugar in person right so here's the thing. There's no continuity. There's one guy that was brought in free agency Class Jeff George. We had dreaded Johnson as starter. Kinda like we had Jameis Winston as our starting and we were doing well then we you know what we're going to get rid of you. James and we're gonNA bring somebody out. They actually benched Brad Johnson for Jeff George Dorn two thousand season. wrecker was. Eight eight. We finished in the NFC. Number three drop two slots out at the top spot. Now, one we closed, we went all the way down the only four teams in the east it ain't GonNa work. Lavar y'all built it a lot differently than they're building it Jeff George. Sabra to do that. You were her samuel tremendous players, rookies like the debate bucks and not going out there and say, we're going to build this house on things that we don't know about their bills on actually people that you respect and have reputations for putting in working in. It feels like there's no one don't. If we old school and we're going old school sports and we talking homes, what about what was it Marcellus that Oh three Lakers team you had the glove they'll do you had. They were owed and has shock and you had the late Kobe Bryant Dan. Boy had a squad for Future Hall of Famer. Shirley. They was gonNA win a chip Shirley. They was going to hit Marcellus. What happened then pissed is. ANDROID case. But what happens when you get old people like Tom Brady? Start Apollo Paul you now always is. This morning. We were in the same draft. So I'm sure he's filling a few more aches and pains than me right now you know what I am going to ride with the Tampa. Bay Buccaneers, I know is not a literal translation Golden State Dynasty be real golden state didn't win every year K. D. step because of injuries as well. So outside of injuries I see the situation worker. Now five just for the Tampa Bay buccaneers coming up the cowboys need a safety in Earl. Thomas is still floating around. There will tell you if Dallas just signed future hall of Famer. Nets yourself dinner by. The healthy lifestyles should be easy right eat veggies drink green smoothies exercise get your heart rate up do yoga to bring your heart rate down. Well, maybe not so easy.

You only find sleepnumber asleep number stores or by visiting www dot sleepnumber dot com slash kagins. Welcome back to speak for yourself. Let's have to my hometown of Dallas Cowboys Safety Clinton Dix, signing him in March. The move has Tila I'd be get. The move as something in a roster spot will go to another safety. That's the Great Earl Thomas Steven. Jones, said that decision wasn't made because of Tom, but he didn't close the door either saying quote I wouldn't rule anything out. Back with us. But marcellus to go to. Do you like Steven Jones keeping the door open furrow. Thomas. I don't like him keeping the door open I rather. Like Look Man Look I'm not built on someone who's going to be trivial in the moment like this and I know why he's doing it. But at the same time I think you should have conviction especially in leadership when moments like this present itself. But who am I to say because it benefits the Dallas cowboys tremendously to play the game just this way it keeps them in the news cycle keeps them full of the tension which has translated to them being what the highest value franchise and all the sports. So who am I to talk about this but? The same way, and there's a separation of church and state that'd be separation of. And business like this is helping the business of the Dallas cowboys, but it's really not helping team in any way because if Earl Thomas is coming in the door, you want to know that as a player he's not coming in the door. You kind of want to know that as well. Because if you look at this situation, there are other guys who are slotted to be their Xavier Woods Darrien Thompson like those guys do you really need to create another level of anxiety outside of just being nfl having a star in your helmet? So it translate for them in terms of business but I don't like it in terms of team building Here's what I need. I need the cowboys, Jerry Jones Stephen Jones all y'all joan exist I need to keep the door open keep the lights on pull out the chair take out the silverware, set the plate and let Earl Thomas come in and dime cowboys fans I cannot stand and I'm sure y'all can't either stop complaining about a problem that has a clear cut solution for years. The cowboys have been complaining about not having a safety and again Marcellus has taken the throne, the full screen king. So I'm simply a full screen prince those green please the last time the cowboys had A. Safety low by FLO, rider was the number one song. Was a senior in high school Marcellus you sir weren't host of a show. You were an arena football league analytic they'll be also. Like that Thomas has been to the most pro balls of any safety in the national football league being seven. The cowboys Joel continue to complain about hat having top Tier safeties. Last time was Roy Williams can't handle in an You're about to trade a second round pick for Earl Thomas just two years ago. Now you can get Earl Thomas foot a cheap and you going to sit here and say now we don't need, Earl Thomas? We don't really have any other safety that we love but we surely don't love this future hall of famer either make make sense. Jerry make it make sense Stephen, Honestly Shaul it can make you make sense for me to I just need one at a Jones's anybody your net Jones. Or listening. To the table. Sarli. Speaks some sense into it. Hey let's say that was pretty bad I do this. I'll tend to I tend to think that this is a great move, a great decision, and the reason why is listen you've got DAK Prescott who is one of the most revered. Right now and he's playing on a franchise state. So this is posturing, they don't WanNa have to pay you talking about getting on a low low, but you say they're driving this price tag up onto high I thought what you're doing there. I. Get that WHOLE ALUMNI DO I Listen. I think that this is right. You do not WanNa overpay in a situation where you could possibly finagle it and get it for two load and I. Don't think they know Marcellus to tell the team that they're gonNA sign earl. Thomas would be mean that you're going to be prepared to pay what it is that they offer and I don't think that they're prepared to do that. So this is posturing of sorts respect the process of posturing because who knows what Earl Thomas still commanding. Pro Bowler still has a name value and still has gained. So maybe he's not sitting there bet minimum or anything close to that. But also you have to show a least the perception if you're not going to turn in your work that you did homework and when you don't have conviction in these moments, it just seems like you haven't done your homework like i. told you guys about the to draft war rooms I saw the one was four prospects coming out of college. The other one for active players they already have our name slotted ha ha Clinton. DIX has go you know who we could just put in there if we don't start the ones that are already on the roster. So I just like smoother transactions than this but to your point, make says I it does for the Dallas cowboys who it makes. Sense there were five and a half billion dollars in a place where the land is cheap the land of thirty thousand dollar millionaires I used to live downside here by the. Boss. That something. Let me let me add to the conversation here. This may put it in a little bit more perspective is well, they may not feel the knee to pursue purely based upon the feeling of what players they already have I mean let's let's be clear it right. Our guys Zeke Elliott says, this might be the most talented team that I've played on since I've been here. So they're pretty high on what they think their talent level is and I'm assuming that that didn't include you know losing. Clinton dix. So I don't I don't feel as though their in a desperate situation where it's like we gotta bring in Earl or it's not going to be a season. So I think it's I think they're pretty high on thinking. They're contender already bought Lavar. All it tastes is we're evaluating him like all prospects and you move forward but keeping the door open is more of a conversation to help your bottom lie more so more so than building your team. This is my biggest problem in cowboys fans I'll calm down. Let me bring my blood pressure down charlet. I didn't mean to bring you into this conversation hangs. Woman here's the issue i. have some Some Air Positano, the headphones that you put into your ears, Bluetooth ones I loved them but the problem was my right airport started. Out On me would have a high pitched tone and that was sent there and I will complain about a complain about a complaint about it. When the fact that matter is I could have just gone to the store and got another one instead of complaining about it the cowboys for the last decade and change since I was in high school complaining about not having a safety comes in about not having a safety comes. About not having a site that is true Scott Free Agency. Up and Earl Thomas Simple as Zach. Pozo. Story started the Ron was kicking it in the bubble minding his own business. He was calling out on social media. We'll tell you if we liked. Hits I idea that's next. COUPLA. Talksport spills present to new documentary from the sports I mean nominated magnifies series followed quarterback to Fungal Vilo. Overcome a career threatening injury arise is one of the most uniquely skill players history of the game to premiere Sunday September six at four PM Eastern on Fox. So what are your expectations with man as well as a college football analyst last year to one of the best quarterback prospects I've ever seen if healthy assuming he is healthy I think have a phenomenal season surprise. A lot of the naysayers echo that he looks like one of the best ever seen at that level. Hopefully, it translates. Let's move on to our big story in the NBA. Stay with me here this all started when Richard Jefferson said, Janas might be Scottie Pippen who needs a Michael Jordan. Well, Jay. Williams. Took it further tweeting Lebron James was pippen with Dwayne Wade once ooh well as it come over well with the king come tweeted this response quote explain to me what the got to do with this subject matter I'm over here minded my damn business prepare for Houston and away right never been no body but my damn self then he added a Crown Mohsen another. To finish this Hayes OCTOPI you should've said it least came bleep Ooh. ooh. So, you don't have beer tone in my voice, but I love I love the bronze the response. I. Love I love it. Not just like Marcellus just moved to Kelly. You notice to do to show what you which I love every single day sitting on the set. But what I've learned about being in California Bro. Tragic wildfires out. And I'm like what's going down with these wildfire and ahead to figure out? Do They Start Wild House? It really starting to look down I looked and I said most wildfires can start as with something as simple as a small spark from a trains car wheel striking the track and it turns into a raging wildfire. You see Jay Williams tweet that was about to be a small spark some nonsense calling the brown and number two. Small Spark. Says trying to call Lebron Rob in at any point his career Lebron said, you know what? I'm focused on Houston I'm focused on these rockets but I'm always mindful of my legacy and I gotTa make sure I shoot down any nonsense when I see it now Kudos today Williams because Brian responding everybody you feel me Lebron is responding to you because he acknowledges your existing says a quality analyst, Jay Williams, one of the best analysts that's out there on TV right now. So when he says something It sticks the broad realizes hold on hold on. Now you're GONNA put some respect on my name I love response Bro Because if Lebron doesn't acknowledged that then the world lazy media. Other. NBA analyst or riders will be like Oh yeah. You're Kinda right Lebron wasn't number two at some point Lebron nobody number two the. I would love to love this but I just you like it like with it in love. And I understand why I'm in like with it and not in love with it because he is the king because he is Lebron James and. Shot that he sees and fills and takes from anybody walking this planet. His response feels like a punch down he's like. You gotta understand where Lebron is coming from attorney. What's on his calendar? What he has to do today who is being the king father husband all that stuff. On top of being a mogul billionaire to make like everything and then he here's the criticism and he's like, do I really WanNa go there where they say don't argue with food because from a distance. and J wizard not a fool but what he said may be foolish. So so you're sitting there and you're Lebron James saying, do I clap back. But while from if you don't clap back, clap. Don't don't. Throw in profanity's out there is. Now, rem give you the example to me. Here's the goat of Clapham Bet Okay we just saw yesterday Scottie Pippen. That was all time defense. Defending, your name and reputation Scottie, Pippen's all top defender on his rent. Richard Jefferson had the nerve to say something about Scott. Imagine you in a classroom and Richard Jefferson on the other side he liked. The Scottie Pippen Scotty got out of his seat walked over to that death said. DOGGONE I. He Ain't me Are you Richard Jefferson seat like hoping teacher. Just break this up right. That's how you do something if GonNa. And my problem Brought to them, you talk to me this Lebron did in the same class he saw Jay Williams up with the. Lebron James and the Broth said. Beat me at the flag pole at three o'clock. Now, the reason why you WanNa meet at the flagpole three o'clock kind of soften it because you really want to teach break it up between at three o'clock the broad really smoke back because he can't back because he was oh. Road moment is looking at this the wrong way my job with this I know how to really you're looking at the wrong way. Let me tell ya while. Scottie Pippen he took a shot below to bill it was. Rj Richard Jefferson. When he said yesterday he said he was talking about your honest context. He he's talking about is he said, John. This was more of a pippen then he is A. Pip and took a festive at y'all see pippen. Way Doors. But my guess Scottie Pippen. He came in here when. He got a real show Ron wasn't really trying to clown. Okay I respect that can respects Jay maybe tip respect Richard, Jefferson that where he just got for you bring in our Guy Fawkes NBA analysts slick rick the euchre settled is for Slick Rick. Do you like Lebron respond to being called a Pippin to Dwayne Wade Hell No, and you know what I really don't like. You guys have given me so much work and I. Don't have enough tolerance. You do five million show go. To get this work done to vault. Jay Williams was exactly right. When Lebron went to Miami who he was the rob. Lien wage. Jordan. To his Batman just that's the reality was he's talented player. Yes. The wave was the Alpha dog and it wasn't until they lost to Dallas and Wade realized I'M GONNA. Point my career where I can't be that guy need Lebron step up and essentially what we're talking about with Jaanus and with Lebron. Most talented it is. Can he be that closer? Can he be that guy that we go to at the end of gains and Wade knew that Lebron had to be that guy for them Oh in order for them to win a championship and so he worked all year that's second year the say Lebron, the everything that you can be so there was that transition Jay Williams is exactly right and he's giving Lebron Kudos or making that switch. The second part. The. Bronze takes issue with comparisons Oh really you weren't having compare problems with comparisons when it was Michael Jordan or it was magic Johnson. Now suddenly we have an issue fact that your name is being brought up and being discussed with other all time greats. Third Part Altima tely is? How are you having an issue with being compared to a guy who's back to back league MVP without a ring in a small market? WHO's about to become a free agent? There is nobody who better reflects where you were at the end of your Cleveland Career Janas authentic. IMPO, in Milwaukee Right now. This is for me. Tweet has all kinds of wrong things about it, and you guys took a hard less term right from the beginning. The Day Williams wrong. When he was actually slick wrestling, you know I respect you because let you finish in the midst of that blasphemy and those asinine state. Let me say this first and foremost this isn't just for us for the world. The problem is y'all stake being an Alpha or lack thereof for having respect I came on the show to two months ago I wouldn't say I'm not an Alpha I wouldn't say I'm not a type I wouldn't say I'm not a dominant personality, but this was Marcellus this show he don't bid at this joint. So what do I say I say a big dog you WanNa do these prompter reads you duties prompt or read this year show eight Marcellus How you feel about that this your show I'm just trying to be here for right now it's the same thing with Lebron getting to Miami SSD Wade's team Lebron had more points, Lebron had mode boards. The brunt had more assists the broncos a better player Lebron was just showing some reference to a person that had already been there for seven years and entire near decade half decade. So I'M NOT GONNA call Lebron non out for for being a respectful human being just like I wouldn't call me Non Alpha for being respect for human being come off. A load of what is what is Robin to Batman? Robin in his own way, it had some tricks Robin. His own way was a superhero, but ron is limited. Man. Roth. The. On Button first and foremost kind of both Batman Limited to deb is Robin first off, you don't even got them saying Moscow sny. Batman. Batman got a strong jaw damning got Nick Batman into a shoulder shrugs okay. Back Man got some biceps robin just don't have and you see I had to unbutton. So y'all can see I'm much more of a Batman Okay y'all start talking about me on this Oh slim affairs rather. Than me low, it's like I gotta say, Slick, Rick is factually. You're correct even though I think there is some conjecture that layers on top of those facts. Here's the thing you have to defer to Duane where you have to show reverence he's a champion the bronze as wasn't a champion when he went to Miami and then is his house was like yoga say we got to master barrels but the way waste picking the one that he wants and. You get the master bedroom and that all changed in dynamic and in terms of their interaction once they lost the first year, they remixed the Formula I respect all of that. I have no problem really factually what was said and enter one of these tweets and the responses in the smoke. I'll just saying the brom if you're going to step in it, step into it for Lebron Nice Guy. Used to take boxing lessons over there, wildcard shot the Freddie. Roach. Him Aboard Ernie on him and Isotope two hundred pounds doing this and always say that that's a hard punch putsch hip into Lebron shot back without putting his hips into it, and that's why I, didn't like Lebron's response to the criticism. Also. Shot back. It read like a personal text Jay Williams. It didn't read like a statement that read like I'm talking to you. I almost feel as if he forgot which latte form was waiting on and he thought he was the texting and it was actually a tweet because like the gratuitous profanity like what's that? Drop that at the end. You do that when you're talking to your boys, you don't do that when you're talking to the world. The way. It happened to this focus on. We don't want to strap sins and we're going for channel rest. Dr. twenty-three, I'm address the address in the Look Brian can be by focus what do I mean slick Lebron is focused on this chip. You saw what he said. He said I'm over here minding my bleep business per preparing for Houston he was focused. But if I'm on some slick and some comes trotting in my line of sight I'm address this nonsense. So I can get back to my focus he was focused lick. Handle some nonsense real quick king and that's okay for and that's okay for a robin. Can go off and you can fight that side fight Oh. But Batman Batman realizes that he's the leader of all of Gotham and you know what it may be okay for me to focus on two things. But if I if I engage in social media, if I take a rip from a from a commentator, you know what that gives Kyle Kuzma license to do the same thing and Javale McGee and it just creates a distraction that is Necessary as I said at the beginning, first of all J. was right and what he said and meant it as a compliment because he evolved into a Batman he was talking about how far Lebron cane he was going with that man I was born. With Bruce Willis. I'm GONNA, leave that to the side of. The car to the Comic Book Characters I'm going to put to the side, but the bottom line is it was meant ultimately as a complement. And now we have this back and forth. Storyteller I love your analogy at the very beginning. It's a match in the basement when Jay Williams says this, you can see it but it's about to go ou- Lebron response to it, and now the entire house is on fire and I don't know that you want a house on fire when you're going for a champions. Yeah. We talked earlier in the block when we were talking about privilege and I told You my son goes to school with these three billionaires and two of them were black and one. Of them stop and talk to for a while and they told me I'm not on social media for one reason and one reason only because I can't go there like if I can't go there fully I don't want to even participate in it. So the broad James if you're going to say say with the chest or don't say it at all coming up, we'll tell you if the rest of the was put on notice after the clippers blew out the nuggets. Slick Rick One that art. You're. Welcome back to speak for yourself. I know Marcellus happy man last night. Till out Marcellus, his clever throughout the nuggets in game one Colli. Kawhi Leonard Batman dropped twenty nine points becoming the first player since Michael Jordan with the least twenty nine in seven games of a post-season joined. Once again by the slickest rink is good to see you back but Marcellus your clippers send a message with their game one win were they say were message yes i. only have one phrase were this clip city chip. Enough sad this team is on a message off get out the way to know what? Marcel Summit. Give you this. One they did send a message man everything Marcellus had been bragging preaching, praying, coping, crying, begging, wishing plea lower. Finally came to fruition a clippers top eight day bald. The benefit Marcellus has been bragging about they bone double digits from the bench. The starters Kawai PG played a great game even though he didn't score Marcus Morris walking bucket all of on ball. Shut Down Murray after Murray said I had fifty forty, two with fifty in my last series said I'm tired of that and none of that. Yes. The clippers sent this performance of the playoffs. Yes. Speaker statement made on this show is the fact that auto clearly has some influence on it because otherwise this would have been the top store this would have been. High. Winds up tomorrow. But it was an impressive performance but the reality is what statement are we talking about that? The Clippers are the best team in the NBA that they're the team to beat? No no I can't take that from this performance because I've seen performances like this from the clippers and I've seen it against teams that are in better shape than the Denver Nuggets who forty-eight hours ago we're just eking out a game seven point more surplus just one. Layer, exhausted they. Also, the clippers didn't have to play forty eight minutes they at the play maybe twenty four at the most and the reality is. They didn't so much come out and put their foot on the neck of the Denver Nuggets. They simply let all that fatigue. Take, take effect and was thirty one, thirty one after the first quarter, and then it just simply started to get away from the Denver Nuggets. The statement made if anything is that the clippers are a terrible matchup for the Denver Nuggets particularly coming off of a game seven and that if there's another statement, maybe we anointed Jamal Murray as a superstar, just a little too fast based on that last series but. I'm glad to see the clippers at full strength. But it's not as if this was an overwhelming performance or one that I haven't seen before if they sweep the series now there's a statement because that will show the consistency and the focus for a long period, which is what we've been missing. You Go. Make me do actual take here and it's GonNa. Be as quick a Clinton chips city but full-strength I'm glad you mentioned debt and his team has eight and one when fully loaded. So you project that out to entire season if we could have stayed fully loaded and healthy setting to win team anyway, we are mismatch four Denver. Nuggets. Also, a mismatch for the Lakers also mismatch for the rockets. That's why I think it's GonNa be smooth sailing into the finals and we know once we See whoever comes out the east? The West will be the favourite clippers were not million in anymore. We're not just going to put the uniform zone is just say, hey, guaranteed w we found out the hallway with a few lacerations from Dallas. We're not GONNA play that game anymore we are fully activated. The rest of the League is on notice here is my problem slick if I can be honest, it's just me talking to you pretend Marcellus. Marcellus hard to like the clippers the because of the arrogance because of the ego becoming a confidence, he makes so hard slick if I can just vent to you, Bro. Honestly, I was hoping the clippers were GONNA lose. They not don't do that guy and they did prove a point in Marcellus is about to prove another one. Eighteen. Don't count. Just yet. Mass. Ball. Against the Lakers. Got US medium. bomber. While them back to speak for yourself let's talk about those Lakers who start their second round series against Iraq is tonight the raw squad has tall trees all over their roster to row the rockets they rely on small ball joined now by Opel Jimmy.

#hottakeoftheday Episode 68 w/Rob McBride, Enverus

"What is going on hot take nation? It is these here for another episode of the take of the day PODCAST I. Am your host obviously I control the Mike and I control the topics. We have a lot of fun and one of the ones I was excited about having when the press release came out last week was rob McBride from various. So first of all rob welcome to the show, I'm going to give a brief intro on what we're GONNA talk about. Right happy to be here. So if everyone will remember my blog in probably late August or September I entitled it Natural Gas Burnout and the primary concept was with the rig activity that was going on in the Marcellus in the Hanes Ville in particular. They were the only two plays that in my opinion were actually improving the productivity and the EU per foot, which to me is the only actual measure of economics this Ip. Rate is garbage nonetheless we at it and we said with. What's going on in the Marcellus with what's going on in the handful with what's going on with associated gas we're having export more and more gas just to because our market was so saturated and it with things that were going on in Europe. There was a massive bear case for natural gas and I think through the winter and into early March we saw that gas was trading as low as a dollar sixty. It was a disaster then march sixth Russians say OPEC. Not so much Saudis March seven say I zero OPEC not so much and I raise you. I will add two million barrels a day to the MAR market March eighteenth lockdown happens in California, the twentieth lockdown happens in New York and the next thing we know world oil demand falls thirty, five, million barrels a day trades negative thirty, seven dollars a barrel, and ultimately what we would project is that three to four million barrels a day of crude or coming off. The market now that sets up on an average of associated gas twelve to twenty, be cf a day coming off the market, which is bullish for natural gas masks. Of surprise we saw the natural gas equities outperform the oil equities underperformed and Rob McBride is here to talk to us about the bull gas thesis with the Hanes Ville and the Marcellus Rob, how did I do for a two minute intro on how the world changed so much in the last nine months. I I. I would have to say you came pretty close to nailing. It couldn't have said it better myself and I think he touched on all hot points they're. The one thing I would add is you know when you're going through the sequence of events in March. Yes we do find that we've developed a bull case for natural gas. It didn't come immediately natural gas. Industry took it's a punches on the chain, just the same and they're starting to recover from that. But the balance of twenty twenty was still very, very, very difficult for all the reasons you mentioned plus the demand destruction due to the pandemic however, that does set us up for very bullish twenty, twenty one. So. So let's talk about that. Let's where do you WANNA start? Do you WanNa talk about demand destruction and what we've seen in recovery talk about the performance and what you're seeing in the Hanes Villa Marcellus, you tell me where you want to start and we'll go there. Yes. Sure. Actually, the best place to start is the oil. And so you go away from strike ask place but think about the Permian in particular at any oil play all the associated gas had to come off the market when the oil is shut and that was the villainous far as a dry gas producers had been battling for many years so that Piece of supply was taken off the market and not necessarily has any reason to come back immediately until the oil demand So, when that part of the supply was taken off it then. Brought, you back into the scenario well, where are you going to get the gas because come winter demand is coming and plus a definitely want to touch on the fact that you mentioned what was happening overseas Europe was in a very oversupplied condition. Then you took demand off the mark on top of that that destroyed eligible exports this summer from the USO it was nobody ever really knew how that would look when this export terminals were built. They were all backed up by tanker pay contracts no really. What would a cancellation look like what we've now seen that and those exports got designated bought those spreads I e, the net back to ship overseas is back in those experts are rising again. So if you couple that with the expectation of you have to at least assume a normal winter. Obviously that's long Carter but if you some normal mature and normal exports, well, the US looks pretty short in natural gas is going to have to turn to dry gas club is. Until those associated oil plays comeback online access focus on the Hanes sale and the Marcellus sill. Soon, we think about short and long I mean, where would you say the inventories for natural gas are relative to historical and and you know I mean I think back to the beginning of my career in like two thousand and the Senate hearings in the United. States talked. About the shortage and natural gas the way are Clendenin really pushed demand by pushing out coal because he was actually the first to really talk about the O two narrative arouse coal to prevent a coal plants were being built. Natural Gas obviously was scarce at the time, and then we went horizontal we started fracking and we read up to ten and then came back. Are. We really sure to natural gas or we shorted natural gas given gas has been two fifty for the last three years and that really hasn't been a lot of justification to drill it and complete it other than in the marseils. PAINESVILLE. Connected to actually the tricky thing with natural gas, it's not tricky but the one difference between the oil market is this when we talk about short and long, every season is a different story, right? So that's exactly what we were just talking about the balance of the summer and into the shoulder season, we do still as a potential to hit the upper limits of our storage capacity. However in a normal winter scenario. With exports going you very very quickly clear that storage overhang because supply is still down. So that those associated gas plays are off line we've probably returned in our shut in wells, but the activity has slowed down. So the natural declines is starting to catch up with us as winter is coming. and your exports are starting to pick up again. So therefore, four this season, you look very short quote unquote just because that activity to produce the Replacement the gas for the natural declines hasn't picked up yet. So. So let's talk about productivity and and I always think about the Marcellus because in two thousand ten, we were effectively zero MCI day from Horizontal Marcellus Wells and and if you include the UTICA and Marcellus together, I think that the total production peaked at close to thirty five. Day. Ten ten years later. So what are you seeing in the Marcellus in with activity in with operators? and. Let's start with their and then I'll follow up. Shirt Yeah we've we've continued to see year after just like you said, activity comes in no matter how low prices went the operator figured out a way to be more efficient at lower cost and continue to just march towards record button, and we get up to that thirty five be day number in that neighborhood that you're talking about We at this date, we would say you're. You're dry gas break evens are still probably anywhere around two dollars. Some of the core plays you can do You can break even below that but think about somewhere in the low two dollars is your range. Now compare that to associated gas play where the break even for gases basically zero Reynolds I always call it when we were one energy people always got mad but I said. Is a waste product for us, and if you can get rid of it and we got nothing for it, that would be totally fine. I don't support flaring by any stretch of the imagination, but in the Permian, the driver was oil not gas and there just wasn't enough in a well to to really move the economics and so so you're saying. In the Marcella. A two dollar break-even even supply cost, and that's to return ten percent return at current costs for a given performance in. Are we talking here one inventory? Yeah we'd be talking to your on although we would actually say you could get close to twenty percent return. We sort of switched our modeling to focus on that. We think in these days of demanding free cash flow. Operators really are more. We used to use twelve and half percent. We've upped to twenty percent for break even analysis, and in that two dollar rains on tier one acreages in the Marcellus UTICA can can deliver that return, which is truly amazing because I remember back in two thousand twelve just before the crash and the price tax that a lot of people were using for the for the ever was ninety dollars oil and four dollars and twenty five cents. Per AMC f-gas because you know obviously, costs were high the Balkan really was one of the only develop plays along with the Eagle for we didn't have economics in Permian and the Marcellus was starting but I don't think people really understood the scope and scale and how much technology would improve and by that I mean better FRAC technology, but also lower costs faster wells to move the break-even supply cost. A two dollars is truly is truly amazing to me. Yeah I it was every year like I said before the oil industry was wild at how do you keep producing missed product as prices We we we call those numbers that will leave us that a forty dollar. A forty oil price debt obviously in the Marsalis it really doesn't matter. You're breaking his don't shift as much with the oil price as do the oily plays but yeah, that is what we look at. We do at twenty percents rate of return forty dollars oil deck, and you're probably in the low two dollars for the core parts of. Marcellus UTICA. So let me ask follow up question to that which relates to what I, what I led with, which was the Marcellus and UTICA grew from zero. To thirty five BCS today now we all know that the midstream business model is predicated on growth and to guarantee their returns, they would have companies to build that infrastructure signed very, very long duration taker pay contracts, and so one of the drags on natural gas players in the Marcellus in particular was with this growth far exceeded the capacity to manage gas and I remember at the time there used to be a premium to Henry. Hub because there wasn't enough gas the northeast and for a while and I haven't checked recently but but it actually went to a discount because there was so much gas he couldn't get it out but with these taker pay contracts and this midstream overhang, how much does that negatively influence companies if there are two or three years behind their growth plan after having one year of just like no free cash flow massive debt bankruptcies restructuring. The burden that you see of of these taker pay contracts and how do you value that in the break even supply cost? Well. What we would say our break even let's start with that breaking. We talk about. At, in that it does it gets to be a much more complicated story astor that can you get it to market at a reasonable rate? So exactly like you talked about over the decade, it was actually a roller coaster. definitely, the premium went away very quickly, but the discounts were massive literally similar to what we saw last year in the Permian there there were points where it was trading. At least on the day, very very, very negative. Because of capacity constraints and as you know the big effort to turn around the long haul types that were traditionally going, Gulf, coast northeast turn them around those projects went underway in full force started to bring. Capacity looseness to the region. But again, the operators were able to continue to raise capital in just continued their joe plants an bump up against the fast constraints. So we still face up now as of today. With the pandemic, the region does have spare expert capacity, but at the rate we expected to continue to grow. The re to major projects on the ballot so to speak. Has. been canceled in one is continuing forward. The now valley pipeline should continue and begin service in twenty twenty one. And the Atlanta capacity, how much capacity will that add to the region? That's TV. And I think if you get that and you should. You're probably goods into twenty, twenty, two, twenty, twenty, three. However, if that were to get canceled in the reason, people talk about that is because it's sort of mirror pipeline was the Atlantic coast pipelines entre by dominion was just canceled. Even after a son, three billion to develop into, didn't go any further in that pipeline is not going to get dull do was basically the same size generally the same direction from. The Appalachian Basin into the mid Atlantic Virginia region to hook up with TRANSCO in that area. That once canceled. And therefore, a lot of people wonder what with the same fate happened to the mount valid pipeline well. Arguably because it serving the same purpose, the same Resistance would exist in heart, but it is almost complete too. We do not handicap that at the sane risk of getting canceled. And where I'm going with that if that were to happen. As early as next year, the Marcellus could be in the same constraints scenario it experienced over the last decade. Wait on. Expect that we expect that type we'll get completed. We're looking at process possibly twenty, twenty three where you bump up against those constraints, but it's the nonstop problem is long as. The Corey which is are to continue to grow production pipeline seem to always lag. The. Rapid discs with the production comes online but I think what this large project. Being completed you're GONNA. Look at you probably have some breathing room until twenty, twenty, two, twenty, twenty, three. So it it makes a lot of really interesting questions. You know it. So the growth and I think we've all seen it right in order for you to raise capital in the world, you must be a growth industry even if you're not a growth industry and I would use we work as my favorite example, they called themselves as like real the they've tried to. Software as a service like the SAS but they called it like space as a service to try and give themselves as techy buzz and and Tesla sells five, hundred, thousand cars but apparently, lawns brain is worth like three, hundred, billion dollars but everyone has this growth narrative. The growth narrative is the single thing that undid the oil and gas world and in particular because they never issued equity, they only use debt the economics never truly justified the amount of growth that was. Occurring, and yet what you're telling me is even after all of this and all of these learnings in all of these constraints and all of this free cash flow of demands, the Marcellus is going to resume growing at the previous pace such that it's going to outgrow its infrastructure that that feels bizarre to me. Is it that good it? Is it that big and that good that it can just we have all the gas in the world and they just turn it on. Now. No I. Don't I don't think I think you're hit the nail on the head. There's one big caveat that this story will rely on going forward that it didn't necessarily have to, because think capital was much more easily accessible in the past decade than it will be gone for. This story relies on global demand increase. Right. This is an expert story for the US. We do have the argument that there will still be continued coal to gas switching. So there's a little bit of growth to burn more natural gas in the electric jen industry, but honestly stories running into particularly. In the eastern US particularly in the mid Atlantic areas it's running up against you like it or not a huge political backlash. Now, do we really need to switch to gas count go straight to alternative source tripe? Obviously, we could spend hours debating that. But the gross for the play in the Marcellus. UTICA region heavily relies on the rest of the world. Continuing to demand natural gas. Now, whereas that that's particularly overseas allergy and also Mexico, we do have spare capacity. We can exploit this right across the border, the pipeline if their infrastructure demands, and really if you look at the emerging world India in particular if those economies are going to increase over the next two decades, significant amounts of natural gas consumption than that's where the Appalachia story is going to fill that. Will Continue to burn it here I think are very small growth in demand maybe once percent domestically. The continued growth with Appalachia heavily relies upon global demand growth for allergy. So I love that as as a conversation because. So call lot of co two were worried about emissions. We have this concept of straight to solar straight to win. It'll be great. We've seen what's going on in California with lockouts. We've seen that sometimes the wind doesn't blow in the sun doesn't shine and that's not an excuse that we should never have that power but for example, I talked to Jack Hamlin from energy strong and one of the things we talked about his boulder has the highest. Per capita of any any county in the entire country, and they have an unbelievable amount of land, and yet they really don't have any wind and solar and they use you know other people's they import a tremendous amount of energy. Are we seeing in California and with our Aging Electric Grid? Are we seeing that it's really a good idea to just go to wind and solar on that? No. My understanding was there's a lot of natural gas. Store capacity where we have extra power plants that we can surge on off the generally, we have a lot of capacity that's unused, is that true and if so do we really think that we should be building new electric generation versus maximizing the capacity of our existing stuff? What's your opinion on that and and and how much work is embarrassed on it? Lots to unpack there. So the let's let's just start with California 'cause it's the headline. Of? The weeks? Of. Speak. You're hitting on all the right targets than people are asking the question. Why did you do too many things at once bring too much renewables online take off your natural gas units. at the same time before you actually were able to guarantee that the system could survive. The devils probably or the details there's probably more nuance to for example, there's probably a lot of policy decisions that aren't done correct. The actual structure of the way the ISO has managed to bring the right resources online at the right time That's where those question you're asking are were there actual? Units that weren't even running even though we're. Doing Rolling Blackouts. There's a lot of nuance in a power system designed that actually will address. Well, was it actually? Is it just a zero sum game? Do I have the as having a crossing the right location being able to ramp up and ramp down the amount of time whereas sometimes the way you pay the cost a rolling blackout take off this one little section of the grid for an hour outweighs the benefit of starting up the one particular gas unit you might have had a lot. So what I'm doing is throwing just sort of. There's new, but there's there's nuance it's complicated to run a grid and it's not just obviously wind and solar, but it's you have it in the right place at the right time for the right people the right load and there may or may not have been equipment, but there's some policy decisions politically the probably are under undermining the physical constraints and what we're seeing is the problem with policy not necessarily. The problem with infrastructure if I paraphrase correctly yeah. Could be could be a little bit of everything all mixed into one I think that position we would take on it like for one you know it's easy to throw darts at that but you know California sharp do something no one else is trying to do. Now that's going to be handled a lot of pain for a lot of people so. I'm not. I'm not supporting it but I'm also not saying it's just so easy to just say it doesn't work. At. The end of the day I do think. The bigger story is going to be look. The easy thing to say right now while you really have to wait 'til electricity storage gets to a more advanced state so that you cannot solar and storage windows. Dancer. That is yes but I actually think. The, diminishing returns is really going to be over the next decade The the real big story here what I'm getting out is. Getting fifty percent even if you had wing dense stored solar end storage. That that's a admirable task. As you try to go to seventy percent eighty percent, a hundred percent the cost to the entire population I believe are going to get exponentially higher. So the technology's not there yet it's not that we should try, but we have to expect that back getting to that last you percent off rotate you're gonNa look at numbers that just just completely nonsensical for any retail person to be paying we have to crack that not and I think what's going to happen is the policy back and forth will circle around. To, yes, we need a mixed. The real answer is a mix of everything that's going to bring nuclear backing of the conversation. It's going to bring guests to the table. There's always going to be the demand for that doesn't mean we shouldn't try but the actual exponential cost increase that you tried to get to one hundred percent. There's no way I'd in our lifetime without a healthy mix of fuel sources to provide electricity, and you certainly address a point in what I've learned from the coronavirus lockdown is we're not very good at discussion of. Trade offs or future costs, and so it's all well and good for the federal government to print sex trillion dollars of of stimulus and no one is having the conversation around what does that do for debt? What does it do for the US dollar? What does it do for denomination? What does it do to gold? What does it do to inflation? We'll deal with that later. But what you've raised is there is a movement to really go one hundred percent renewable regardless of the cost that there's a whole bunch of policymakers that are launching. Towards it and in the event of a Biden victory I think that that would have a higher probability of happening sooner than later. Now on that, we talk about natural gas is it a problem to the both thesis that we're relying on exports to rest of the world where there is surplus capacity coming on from cutter Saudi Arabia's looking at it Algeria. There's a lot of flared gas in a lot of parts of the world and there's a lot of gas that's available out of Russia out of these places that may gas very accessible. I look at oil and had we not allowed exports of oil oil companies would not have had a place to send their barrels so they would have instilled capital discipline within constraints but all of a sudden we put ourselves out to the world. One of the things I've always liked about natural gas is is fairly domestic and what you're telling me is the both thesis relies on US continuing to grow our export capability which feels. Like we're setting up for the exact same thing in natural gas as we just happen to the world in oil, which is it's a global commodity, and if cutter comes on with thirty BC affidavit from some offshore something and Israel does what chevrons going to do with that with the noble acquisition and etcetera etcetera boom glut of gas bom prices hit a dollar and everyone here goes bankrupt again am I thinking about that too simply While there's no way anybody could take up to simply because the the the question is very complex. And I agree with your train of thought there what would send the alternatives? Day The the accessible resource that we have so far exceeds. You know even our. Wildest imagined of domestic demand. So I would answer the question with this. Yes. The capital disciplined needs to be very. Very stringent anyone funding natural gas development should have those questions about well. Is. Cutter is Australia is Russia's is somebody else going to compete with you so that you don't get to export how sure are those revenues going to be they alternative had kept domestic? there. Would just be that much more capital discipline to know who should develop because we can only develop so much that we can consume here and I think either situation you're relying on growing demand where can you grow it? It's probably more like that. You could make the story is going to grow globally faster than it's going to grow in the US it's. So let's let's talk about Warren. Buffett and and forgive me if. I if I miss quote this, but it was dominion I believe that sold a large portion of their natural gas asset to warren, Buffett and a Lotta people wanted to point to that as the Oracle of Omaha is now investing in gas that must be bullish. Do you see that sale as that or was it something more strategic or or how do you interpret that move in particular as it as pertains to the natural gas bull thesis? yeah. I don't know that it was a is not his first moves. So Berkshire Hathaway has been heavily invested in bitstream out sets in the natural gas this huge addition it it strikes me as to foser one what's dominion while Dominion that that's sales Warren Buffett happened at the same time I think actually the same day they announced the cancellation of their large Atlantic coast. Project. So Dominion Basically extending mistake no, we're going to just focus on electricity business. We're GONNA actually become renewable energy company. Warren, Buffett I think is just saying, Hey, for the right deal I know these assets actually give me a regulated engaged almost guaranteed rate of return on the happily for the right price at that's my portfolio because the pipe that's already in the ground. So I don't think he has any aspirations to build new large infrastructure projects. But. These five are going to be in use their serving demand That's definitely here to stay and if not growing a little and that that that that sort of return, it is very comfortable to continue to assume. So it to me it was forward to. We don't want to be in this business and he was happy to say that's a steady consolidation I can I can spread my cost structure over something and it's a win win for both parties. That's that's a really good point. So so let's think about the fact that US has a lot of natural gas and that in order for us to really. Get the resource maximized. We're GONNA continue to drill it, and then we're going to export it to other parts of the country of the world which again when we think about climate change, it's very interesting everyone focuses so domestically and Greta. Thunberg comes to the to the United States and Canada and yet seventy four percent of electrical generation in Asia. Is from coal fired plans you would think that the biggest bang for your buck would be to go to China and say. How about we? We install a whole bunch of wind and solar and and help clean up your grid. There's no such thing as a know peeing section in a pool, and if Asia is going to pollute like crazy, then we should be focused where the pollution is. But now we're going to produce a whole bunch of natural gas and then exported to other parts of the world where the US environmentalists are saying we don't want any natural gas anywhere in the world. How do you? How do you balance the incongruence between like? We're just stealing from Peter to pay Paul and we have it here and we can do better than coal and and I. What do you make of that? Yeah I mean I think that's the question of a lifetime right there on its so obvious but at the end of the day people. Allah, of us will do what's right in front of us So I think to get some attention to get votes on. It's good to talk about it. You know if your local. Regional politician. Just. What we're doing here in our own backyard is gets more attention than whether we are robbing Peter to pay Paul. I think the numbers out of Asia in addition to. Burning a ton of call. They're still building a ton of coal, but they're also rian world building wind solar all over the place so. Yes going on percents noble. The United States. Is Not GonNa. Solve the world's climate change problems I think that's GotTa be a global effort. I don't have the answer to it, but I do think everyone will act. In their own media interest So as long as there's a healthy rate of return oil and gas producers in the US are going to find that and they're gonNA make that story. Extract resource out of the ground and find a home for it. They're always going to be fighting resistance from others who made their living. Collecting votes by downplaying oil and gas. But you know at the end of the day me if there's a return on the asset. And that means there's demand for it somewhere on the planet. Someone's going to figure out a way to actually make that business where that's why we continue to see. Yes we hear headlines just where you all want ah cleaner climate on, but you know the oil gas industry as long as they do it. In a responsible manner, there's a demand for this product globally and I could get siskind continue to be developed image Directoire. So so then this brings me to the topic of the electric grid, but in particular electric vehicles, and so we'll go back to oil for a second and we're going to say, okay, oil at sub forty I mean, would you see that the break even supply cost of an oil play in the United States using your twenty percent threshold? I, mean. Is there really any inventory that would meet that criteria from from European or I? Guess? The technical work y'all dudes come up with Shirley and opinion but you know what? I mean yeah. There's some core acreage out there. That could do that. But you're right. You're kind of right on the boy were really just you know. Squeezing blood out of the rocks here. So to speak so that threshold really do need to to to get above that So so let let's build. Let's build on that. So so oil, there's a billion barrels in inventory because oil unlike natural gases very mobile you producing, he put it in tankers you put it in storage, you stored in swimming pools and from the thirty five, million barrels a day that we let off the program with that there was demand destruction for forty cherish days that's a billion and a half barrels that go in inventory. Sixty five percent of oil of the hundred million barrels a day we used to produce sixty five percent of that was used in transportation, which is trucking and boats, and flying none of which has really come back, and at the very least we've sort of seen a plateau about fifteen to twenty percent less demand. So all of this leads to a lot of oil in the world that we need to burn off inventories of before we could probably go above forty for meaningful periods of time short of a massive US dollar devaluation, which has a by the. So all of that leads to the US will continue to decline in oil but we continue to consume at a level which means X. imports of oil will continue to grow every single year for the foreseeable future. Now If we think about energy independence and what you said about natural gas, we have as much as we need, and then some we're going to be importing moral every single month for the next foreseeable future. So that brings up the concept of electric vehicles. Twenty million barrels. A day of oil is consumed in the United States under normal world. Seventy percent of that is in transportation if half the cars were switched to. Electric that seven million barrels a day of oil we don't need to import, but it's also seven million barrels equivalent of natural gas. We need to generate the electricity and the energy to fire those cars to move around how does that play into the natural gas both thesis and does this hasten our move to electric vehicles simply because we don't want to be exposed to Middle Eastern oil? What's your opinion on that? Lots of questions wrapped into their You know the the one. I agree with the way you've broken down to one thing that does get a little tricky with imports of oil there is that trade off between okay. We call it crude oil but we all know unlike natural gas watts, different grades and air what the you know. So are we importing it because we need to or we preferred upgrade compared to what we're producing here locally so that aside hastening me move to electric vehicles Apprentice on the spot here but I've kind of off the top of my head of the the day. Yes. If you word to convert the entire fleet electric vehicles, you'd have to massively replace that gasoline demand with electricity charge these vehicles. Would that happen because we're trying to? Charge towards energy independence. I'm not so sure I. Think a lot of people may talk about it that way Maeve and tried to take credit for it if it happened that way but at the end of the day I, think it comes down to the economics of Kenai purchase this vehicle. And actually operated to do what I do in my daily life. On a consistent basis. At a competitive credits. So if we continue that, March I think the penetration electricity vehicles will continue to increase but I don't necessarily see a just nationwide mandate or decision to just switch everything in his rapid a manner as possible if you can build the electric vehicle in attractive price to sell it to the operation and I think we're starting to see some green cheese tonight it'll happen over time but it literally just has to be a decision where I'm going to choose an easy overnight C. E.. Vehicle to sue my, lifestyle. Yeah. Well, and it's Eminem and you'd made the joke that it is a complex issue. All of these are complex issues because in order to make a bull thesis for one, you have to think about the alternatives which are switching. So if oil does this and I know a lot of people like to be talking these days about the Super Bowl thesis in oil and that we're going to see a big run-up and. Where I land is I don't see that because similar to the United States, the United States has all the gas we could possibly use and nowhere to do it. So we need to export it, which means we need to win over market share. Will you think about Saudi Aramco going public at the end of two, thousand nineteen and there SEC reserve report has them have the fifty three year reserve life index at ten million barrels a day and so if you believe the world is going to transition away from. Your main source of revenue you want to accelerate that. So that at least you match Exxon which has seventeen year reserve life index, which implies that the Saudis should grow from ten million barrels a day to thirty million barrels today to maximize the speed at which they sell their oil to the world before the world converts away and it's a useless commodity and so in order to make a call on gas global geopolitics, you have to be making a call on one subset and then fan through the entire. Value Chain. So through the value chain, we've talked a lot about Marcellus gas demand and what it's used for let's talk about the how the Hanes Vo plays in the Hanes Ville is about a ten BC F day play. I recall correctly. Again improving economics, what do you think about the Hanes Ville break even supply cost as opposed the Marcellus and are there any other gas plays in the United States that really matter in terms of production? So, take the last one I the on. Certainly are other ways but non as let's say sizable as the dry gas certainly more close you can take the cake on that. An excellent to look at It's also not quite a bit of infrastructure already in place and that's that's. A good benefit as far as it's economics. I think we would put those sort of right in the middle. So they're they're lagging the tier one acreage in the Marcellus Utica, but it certainly completely outperforms all of your other hold on one second you're. Still have your bag. That out type, some other calls popping up on my toes I worked from Rome is the way we were. There's been no dogs. Let's key. That's. Cigarette we we we put it right in the middle there still probably below two fifty for some of its tier one which but. You can get better returns in the Marcellus UTICA Hanso coming next next stop after that, and then every other gas play you would see is higher than two fifty. So is it fair to say that if we have a full time peer sorry, you're going to interject on that. Yeah. I would say I think you're fifty or oil-dependent rice you gotta the DJ go to the Permian you go to the Bach, an eagle third all those folks. It's really more the oil story in the gas comes along with it. So not necessarily always behind with two fifty and gas, and you gotTa have a good return on your one and so cycling back to at forty dollars and below they're likely aren't a lot of inventories on scale. Of course, there's always exceptions but on scale the, we don't have the inventory to grow production. Therefore, oil dependency means until oil is back above, forty, five or fifty. Associated Gas won't won't really come so so the Hanes Ville has to fifty i. hear a lot of private equity people are people who are trying to replicate the model, the by and Flip model which I think is dead but they talk about natural gas and they say, well, we've been in this bear run since really two thousand eight. Two thousand twelve natural gas is the next thing I want to go invest in, pick your random basin and I want to do dry gas because there's some some small things and my hearing, you correct it number one, you know maybe there's some opportunities, but it's totally dependent on exports. So if you're GONNA make a move, you need to have access to the export market to Mexico and internationally to really be able to guarantee that the market can take it and number two you have to focus on the Marcellus because if The marcellus grows all of the demand requirements because it's the most economic and most capital efficient. It's GonNa be even longer before the rest of the market gets to a level that you know three dollars three, twenty five sustained that you can make money in another play. Is that a fair characterization? It's generally fair characterization. The only thing I would add is is you know there is some benefit for the hanes. Oh, with his proximity to our export destinations so whether or not there is going to be a constraints you know both. Lie On some future infrastructure projects you know not to handle today's production but if you're going to grow it, you need those pro projects again. So you could make the argument hanes bones got a little bit last. Mile distance therefore my access to the export markets slightly advantaged but in general I think the. The play or societas outweigh that. At the end of the day. Yes. They are competing with each other. So the Permian when it's an oil associated gas. The rockies, Marcellus UTICA PAINESVILLE even search hannity in there because it's a big existential problems for van to export their products you're competing to each other. If you think the global demand market is the destination still does have some proximity that the Marcella doesn't enjoy but Marcellus the turnaround projects that happened on the long haul pipelines does give them pretty solid access to those Gulf coast markets. And love the way you characterized it because I think again and what I love about the podcast versus like a blog is is you can actually dive into topics and verbalize so that there can be less less. Ambiguity one of the things I've said in the past is in the US, the only based in the matters is the Permian and the reason I've said that is because the economics are the best for large scale developments and therefore as goes the Permian Sogo's oil production domestically, and I've said the same for the. Marcellus. And so as you see activity, you're going to see oil activity pickup. I in. The Permian, and then on the fringes and in gas, you would see at first in the Mercilus and then on the fringes that's been centric. Let's talk about companies for a second and and I don't WanNa put in various in a bad spot because I know a lot of clients, our customers but there's a difference between the commodity and the value of the company that owns asset in the play. and. There's been a large discussion and we haven't seen that wave of consolidation for lots of reasons I argue value valuation. But what is the catalyst for the the world, the pioneers of the world that oil centric players who've really avoided natural gas to take that step and go get more gas given if what you're talking about the Marcellus is economic two bucks, there's going to be a large market for it. Who knows how long it's GonNa take oil the come back and they have all this technical efficiency. When do you start seeing oil players buying natural gas players and how did the valuations come to a correct relative value basis to get that done? Yeah. It'd be Cabbie out with the that step away the area for commercial intelligence teams on, which is not by expertise area at embarrass. My my my experience would tell me i. don't see that happening anytime soon because. You know the way I brought this down this experts story for natural gas is you know it's necessary. I. Don't necessarily believe it's a slam dunk and it's so compelling oil expert is going to say. Boy I. Just get out of what I'm doing and get into that because that is just going to explode That sad yet you know targets people might be sniffing around at players like range at ut. But I guess I would see it more for a major trying to add to their already existing. Gak. Expertise rather than an independent oil producers switching league lever saying I'm going to become a gaspar. I I haven't heard much of that. I haven't seen that unrest maybe a year from now will be talking to different story but I think mostly spares WANNA see some demand returning their core markets before the ready just completely. Take a different angle on their business when I love that because I think related to that was that topic around the firm transport overhang and this sort of like. All of these companies have built their business plan for growing markets that may or may not be able to meet it. But until they've at least met their firm transport, they actually have a liability hanging around their neck and in order to have a both thesis for natural gas, you need to confirm the experts. So it's almost you know I, call it getting pregnant, and Eh with, PD? They're already as pregnant with regulatory risk in Colorado that to me as an example, owning in the Permian. Confuses the story and that they should swap out of the permit and just be fully pregnant with Colorado same with natural gas players are fully levered towards exports, firm transport capacity, that Marcellus and the natural gas thesis. And so they should just they should all consolidate amongst themselves. The oil players should all consolidation against themselves and then like a high school dance at some point, maybe they'll meet in the middle and start to dance. Think chest H interesting story right now, Aubrey started out as a gas company and you know as the years went by you know they they in the past several years were trying to make themselves oil company and look it hasn't really worked out. It probably gotta get their house in order before they would leader saying, Hey, look we can go back to natural gas. There's a lot of confusion still to be worked out here there as well. Rob I really appreciate you coming on and talking for the last forty five or so minutes on the natural gas thesis and and where where the tweaks in the thesis could be that make it more bullish or more bearish but in various is sort of saying look, there's a both thesis. In Two thousand and twenty one for all the reasons we talked about the risk is exports the risk is politics. The risk is pipelines. But when all of that is taken into consideration embarrasses making a bullish call natural gas and continues to see challenges in the oil world because there isn't really a compelling argument to go above forty fair characterization I think that's pretty fair. Anything else. You'd like to say to the heartache today listeners. Spend pleasure. Thanks for having. Awesome. Well for everyone listening until next time be safe and good out day.

Speak For Yourself with Cowherd & Whitlock

00:00 sec | 3 weeks ago

Baker vs. Dak, Kyrie + LeBron, Eagles, Lamar Jackson, LeBron's mindset, Doc Rivers/76ers

"So we're going to speak for yourself presented by day. I'm back I can't tell you why was going either A. Shar are working like the four times don't lie. Grandma counts over here floor. In line for we're here for the next two hours. Let's get it. As he said, let's start with Dak Prescott and Baker Mayfield are Sunday on Fox. Makers grounds tour one, but they currently have the second few passing yards in a league on the other side of the cowboys are. I. In that category have scored just over seventy points. Their last two games deck said this week quote go doubt this is the most explosive offense I've been part of the cowboys are still wanted to start seeing. So choke quarterback. This weekend. Thanks. Dad. This easiest Dak Prescott he has so much to lose Marcellus yesterday I had my sparring partners in here time to get back to the heavyweight. All really, which is you you Think that Bigham? Prescott and there's so many layers more layers than a wedding cake to this argument. But let me start with the top one first and foremost if the cowboys win that Prescott wins there only five hundred. Oh but if they lose ladies and gentlemen were one in threes. Let's take her to the browns Marcellus one in three. What is that? Like a fourteen percent chance you make the playoffs but let me start with my first point. Cowboys fans you all have to understand. There's a difference between the value you put on that Prescott and the value that press value Jerry Jones puts on that Prescott performance what do I mean by that? But he's still eleven hundred, eighty, eight yards to three games. tastic. Receivers on pace four, thousand yards by God does not dot Prescott. Jerry Jones looking like one and two I don't care about this. We're one in to think about it and I had to four seconds Troy Aikman won his second super bowl for the cowboys in nineteen ninety-three last six games of the season combined. Troy Aikman accounted for twelve hundred passing yards as it but they won a super bowl I. Three Games that Prescott is accounted for twelve hundred passing yards but they're one into okay. Aikman you walk into eighteen stadium look up he's in the ring of honor Tony Romo. No. But Tony Romo passport, Lauda yards but Tony Romo he didn't really win anything. Okay. You're my first point Marcellus. Out Boys fans understand how you look at that Prescott how the media looks at. Dak. Prescott is far different than how Jerry Jones the Dak Prescott which is why it is. So so pivotal that Dak Prescott winds today because he needs to find favor in the site of Jerry Joe not only am I on the other side of the table I'm on the other side of this conversation. Obviously, Baker Mayfield has more to lose you hear that. About the. Miss My job yesterday. All right. Let's talk about that Baker Mayfield is playing for his job literally plan for his out. Did they pick up its fifth year option yet? Oh No, no have not. Playing for his livelihood he's playing for his reputation and please don't let me understate what that means because. Kurt Warner went out there and said look if are in the NFL. The last thing you WanNa do is get labeled as a bad player in this league because it's nearly impossible to change that perception. So right now, if you're Baker Mayfield, you're sitting there right there on the threshold of being a bottom line starter or a great backup. Case keenum how does that feel right now if you're Baker Mayfield former number one overall pick and you're in a situation where people looking at you like, yeah, we're above five hundred, but it's not because you and if Baker Mayfield wants to go out there and change the narrative on him. Two things have to happen one they have to continue to be above five, hundred Katina win ballgames more importantly Beta. Damn reason Taylor winning ball games no hand off to nick job my elbow was locked out. As A. Hand off the Crema Oh. What do I look in the follow through of that Baker Mayfield lighten it up has to be a reason why they're winning or else this is all the pressure on him. Dak Prescott is out there literally just playing for how much you don't pay me. You're already offered me five years thirty, five million dollars. What do Baker Mayfield's playing for something to eat Dacca's playing for? What's fine dining establishment shall I go and partake in tonight? It's a completely different scenario Marcellus while you were resting yesterday comfortably in bed and I was working I worked overtime the hat to prepare even harder to defeat you an argument I knew you were going to come to that Prescott Marcellus is playing for money and he's playing for a large amount lot say laws cleaning it was a lot Larijani. Amount of it a super sized portion. Let me draw a parallel to something. You'll be able to understand a little bit in two thousand and Sixteen Kirk Cousin Franchise Tag Mind The Washington football team got franchise tag now, and two thousand and sixteen. Kirk cousins had a career high in passing yards east threw for a lot of touchdowns and limited amount of intercept full screen. Let me draw this parallel for you. Marcellus threat cousins tag in two thousand sixteen do for a career high in passing. Told you twenty five touchdowns. Twelve picks look at Dak Prescott. Now that Prescott on pace with over six thousand yards obviously you WanNa talk to. Dad Prescott for twenty. Six touchdowns six interceptions. Here's the Pivotal Statistic Ladies and gentlemen bottomless Kirk cousins with all those stats. He was eight seven in wine that press got I'm not gonNA. Take what he go to a student he's he's to end up between eight and wins ten weeks so. Here's the issue Marcellus here's issue you kirk cousins tagged again my money not because Kirk didn't ball what he thought for him. He didn't win. He got tagged again. Sure he made money, but he didn't get long term from the Washington football team. My argument has always been this. If he does what he continues to do put up Gaudy numbers ball have the best career years statistically that he's ever had like we saw with kirk cousins will get tagged again. short-term the tag is great but long-term the tag is used to sept ability to injury, which is not great. The issue at hand is if he loses more cells, he does lose that long term money kirk cousins is betting on himself. It's worked for Kirk. Yes. I sat might not work every single. Oh, you want to go back to two thousand and sixteen WHO's made the most money. Who made the most money since two thousand sixteen in the NFL all those great players including Russell Wilson including. Air Rogers. Kirk cousins, and you try to sit up here and tell America that that doesn't matter discontent for money is a trick that the rich used to keep the poor without it. No it. Godfather. Here the point of it stop telling people money don't matter because they are paying you for what you do in service and that's your value. Since you WanNa Harpool two, thousand and sixteen. So much takes me to another facet of this cowboys team because we're talking about Baker and we're talking about deck and it's pretty obvious. Baker is playing for much more. He just playing to hold onto his position we're deck is like high shall I be paid at the same position that really an argument for me but I want to highlight something because you've been in the Dallas Cowboys Organization before so have. A had Sony. Laptop. That's why he's so damn good. To do here's the thing Oh my God the cowboys never have to things that go together what a smokey saying Friday ham no burger peanut butter no jelly. You look at the cowboys office they're number one ranked right now in Grad, relations and most people would assume that Oh, they got a great balanced attack. They're getting great support from the run game and great office alarmed protection of blocking and the receivers are catching the ball Dacca's playing career level. Oh. Only last part is true. Let me show you this. You want to harp on two thousand sixteen back and what Ezekiel Elliott used to be and. Right now with Ezekiel, Elliott has just came into the League on fire five point, one yards to the tip. Now, three point eight and every year it goes down in between yards per reception. Three now, five point nine now, evaluators will Paul's right then but fans wouldn't fans. But like so what they don't own the ball different, they're not giving them the same amount of touches lying because it's I two weeks at twenty two touches each week and he's still didn't eclipse under yards but this is where even the fans. Oh God. Because this when you know something's wrong with those spark plugs fuel injection system ain't the same longest run when your rookie sixty Nateghi hit a ball all these times fourteen. Longest reception when your rookie eighty three now my team, all these damn tattoos and all that belly fat maybe is at. Dog 'cause I don't know. Has Gone but you know. We Locker Room and coach pulls out one of these statutes basically saying the engine doesn't look to say, here's my problem Marcellus. No, I will let fans get away with this narrative. You've just portrayed because they didn't play the game at the highest level that you did. They don't have the same level of knowledge that you're getting in all honesty you graduated from Columbia thought I probably a smart as you. I won't let you get away with the game of football has to be played in congruence offense defense defense offense if I am Mike McCarthy if I had that Prescott is my quarterback yes I understand Dacca's in a contract year he needs to ball but understanding be fun. Sucks. So maybe I will balance time of possession. Let me read to you the time of possession discrepancies in the first regained discrepancies. Last game. SEATTLE seahawks the ball for thirty two minutes to the cowboys twenty seven game before that the Atlanta Falcons on the ball for thirty three minutes to the cowboys twenty, six game before that the los. Angeles Rams on the ball for thirty five minutes to the cowboys twenty four, what I am saying is this if you know that you have some weaknesses on defense then maybe just maybe tackle ball as much and you can let other players eat maybe just maybe I shouldn't pass the ball fifty, seven times a game maybe fourteen carries isn't enough. I understand he only have thirty four yards or thirty nine yards with those fourteen caring. But maybe just maybe I shouldn't abandon abandon the run game all it takes Marcellus a couple of drops a couple droplets a couple of droplets. Then the roof breaks open I would love to. He break. Our love dead. But he got twenty two he got twenty two and he went from ninety seven to eighty six. He went backwards and then you say we gotta abandoned the run game because you're not doing anything. As soon as you get the ball, Zeke used to only get the ball few and all we gotta keep feeding them. Why kick? What's this thing he always? What's on your spoon? because. Of Key themes what I'm not being the ball anymore if I see deck, lighten it up at career levels and you out there going backwards regression you bring up is funny. You bring up my Columbia. You. Add enough up of possession three different times, and each one of them added the fifty nine minutes I don't know what the hell you. Over cookbook is sixty minutes every football game. Let me start there but here's the thing about it. If you're debt Prescott, you really need balance and if you don't have balanced then if you're Dak Prescott you, you don't want to say because you can't out a teammate you can't wet snitch who your teammates but you're looking at office align in shambles and it rotation you're looking at Ezekiel Elliott and I am not trying to make this up. It'd be a hot take artists. He is regression bre and it's been going. It's been so subtle that you don't notice it. You don't have any kids I do. I have two kids that are off the charts, a hundred percent Tau in height and weight my daughter. Especially, the funny thing is every someone sees her like she's huge and every time I look at like she kinda big. The point is is subtle to me but as grand for those who step away and come back and look at this situation when you played Dallas cowboys now there's only one thing you. Have to stop the passing game who knew that we will move the goal post them. They will win thirteen games deck but we're your numbers, and now we're in a position where they can't win the game and totality but deck is doing his thing you know why they can't because they don't have ballot his here's my last point is on this marseils just please understand that Prescott is bowling but at the End of the cowboys no no no. Again, I don't know how this has to do with biblically. Idiom Robbing Peter to pay Paul Yeah Yeah. The problem is cowboys. Fans are robbing Peter and paying Paul, and that Prescott at this point is Paul because let's not involved in. He's getting his stats leads the league in passing yards up there in touchdowns really high up there but he up there. But the problem is they're robbing robbing the cowboys of their success. Let me end with this parallel green boy Green Bay packers defense is atrocious is well, well, what do they do? Forty two minutes time of possession to eighteen Thirty four minutes time of possession to twenty, six to thirty one minutes time of possession to twenty, eight, we three, what they say is this our defense sucks. Let's hide them in Lincoln better when the cowboys say our demand sucks. For y'all because that, president? That's the problem cowboys fans then get his shirt when not at the expense of every body else look at Zeke, Elliott was living up to the name on the back of their Jersey. All things will be great in Dallas, just be real about this. If the office along was as good as we think, they are a perception, things will be fine and dowse. Zeki was who we thought. He was who we really was before things will be fine and dowse if everyone was playing career levels like Dak Prescott, we wouldn't be having this conversation Abe block when you have not possible is what I'm saying hold on the thirtieth scoring defense and did your eighth in scoring and your first in yard. Here's why it's not possible. Let us been. Let me ask you this. I'm listening to coat your defensive in you were top tier and Sach's for several years. If a culture like Marcellus, I need you to get four sacks this game habit. Well, let me say you didn't have. It did happen you would have to sacrifice playing the run. Because one thing would have to give in order for the ball at the culture to say this Marcellus Hey don't let you better play contain you better play contain. have, to sacrifice that inside move. Inside move might sacrifice some sex. So telling you and the rest of cowboys nation is you can't say everybody career year like Dang because the reason deck is having a career year in the same reason that other people are struggling man I. Love You so much. But you sound like Lavar yesterday within wack Aaron to is. They worked. I remember the white. Coming out of college from Syracuse and I got to meet him when he was young and we just talked all the way through and ice to be jealous of his career one because the do run so fast he did that tornadoes fan move do any of that but three, their scheme philosophy I was like. What is going on in why knives and you're getting it? I'm over here in seven technique tiny beat me up and he said Costa always told us to play to run on the way to the quarterback out. There's a way to do so far and you know that coming up at the top of the hour, the Lakers dominated game one, the bronze wants them to tone down the antics for tonight's game to. We'll tell you like his mindset for I. The former teammate Karl urban denies throwing shade. His way will tell you if we believe him. Speak for yourself presented by on day.

Back to speak for yourself presented by Hyundai. Let's talk about Kyrie. Irving. We got a lot of backlash yesterday when he said for the first time in his career, he had a teammate that he trusted take the final shot. He was referring to his new team ak be Kevin Durant but it looked like a direct shot. It has former teammate Lebron James. Well, today tyree dismissed. Listened. While must always be brother against brother. Why? If I'm addressing anyone. I'll say their name. Come on you listen to the false narratives that people live their lives. Just the game. It's just a game. He says join NBA analysts, Slick Rick. Marcellus you I, you're buying Kyrie wasn't taking a shot at Lebron with those comments. No I'm not buying it. He was taken shot and we have a segment on this show. You know t need Emmy Award winning one day. Segment Code Keep it ninety nine and Kyrie didn't even keep it ninety nine they kept the morning that but he didn't keep it one hundred because he didn't say names. So he kept the not an odd point nine. Let me finish this thing off and keep it one hundred what Kyrie Irving was basically saying look. I can shoot. Katie Hookah Shoe Abroad Kinda cashew and that's where this went wrong for him. That's why the cover up is worse than the crime itself if he wanted just came out and said look from three point Lebron US I. Think has so much smoke. But because he's trying to cover it up and down make it about black lives and Topo brother and brother and wearing his hat and doing sell fees videos, it has its own legs less narrowed is focused carry Irvine is still upset. That the block heard around the world wasn't the shot heard around the world. You remember when they won the championship coming back with three one and everybody was talking about browns block, which was amazing and nobody was talking about the fact that we hit that shot and. Is still sticking right there and he's now letting it leak out instead of just saying if you want to say which chest. So let me give you guys of full screen to illustrate what I'm talking about. This is why Qadri is saying he ain't us when you look at their shooting percentages from three. Car Serving has had full four years of forty percent or greater say K-. Be Lebron only one and then you drop down and you say, okay, well, thirty eight percent because that's just under that lie but it's close enough to still be called a great shooter. Kyri now has seven K. D. has seven. Lebron still has the same exact one. When you look at in totality, all curry had to say was in clutch moments where we needed three and by the way we needed to three to win a championship I, didn't get my credit and. That do couldn't shoot that same shot I. Don't think we'll be talking about this right now well, because he's trying to cover it up oh, we got to expose them for the lies he told got expose them because this is what I hate and yes, Cari was taking a shot at Lebron James could I hate Marcellus and what I hate slick rick as when people try to make you seem crazy Marcellus. You always tell these people that I'm single on the show. So every now and then on the show I go to instagram and INSTAGRAM's. From a female and she'll express interest and I'm like, Hey, sorry sorry, you know I'm not interested. So hit me and be like, Oh, I wasn't even checking for you. Honestly I just wanted to say I like your work. What you was doing and you know what you weren't doing don't back out now that I called you well. That's what Kyrie is doing like stopping. Kyrie, you know what you were doing. We know we're doing but don't try to back out and back down now do we put you frustrate and we sat put address on it if you send a letter without an address on it as GonNa get returned to sender. Address on. James, name on, put a stamp on their joint field a letter put it in the mailbox and this get delivered. Here's the other issue I have though. Kevin Durant as rubbing off on Kyrie, what do I mean by that? Four weeks ago Marcellus came on this show and we had to pick apart a quote from K. D. are you doing this work to facilitate growth or you're doing it to become famous I hop on twitter people coming at me and Marcellus. Man to allow K. D. was just quoting Ajay colleagues. Wait a second. Thousand Words Nassau. chose. Those twelve words are you doing this work to facilitate greater to become famous? He chose twelve words in the midst of turmoil around social justice when the Brian James had come up, doc rivers had come up. That's when George Hill had come up and now is going to sit here and highly oh I'm just Tweeden us and I'm just quoting the song I'm just quoting the so no, you're throwing shots and we just going to make sure that these shots get delivered sender stop playing around Kyri you put it out there. We just making sure it goes to who you wanted to go to. I'm with you on the response it wasn't sincere in terms of what he meant to say. But his original comment. was he throwing shade? No, he was not. He was throwing a bouquet to his his new teammate Kevin Durant. and. He was telling the truth. Full screen. Look. At the full screen. Okay. So this is the two, thousand, nine, thousand, nine, hundred, thousand, and twenty survey GM's they do one every year who would you want taking the last shot? Where where do we see where's Lebron? Where's where's he scrolling? Where is he? I see? How reasoning there I C K D's there but I don't see Lebron's name there. He was in the others with harden. The reality is two out of the last three years Kyrie among GM's if you were asked the same question. Kyrie over Lebron. Lebron has done many things but to equate the championships and the number of finals appearances with being clutch and who you would want to take. The last shot is a false equivalence, and so carry ultimately is saying look when it comes to the last shot. I always believed in me but now I have a guy next to me who I could say damn. If he's got the shot I'm fine with him taking it. Because I believe is everybody else does that he ultimately is a killer and by the way I'll Marcellus love that you took us back to that game because not only was the block made a bigger deal than the shot. Lebron James Happen to miss his last four shots in that game and clank one of two free throws. So not only was it a switch in terms of what they focused on but Lebron didn't deliver in those final minutes and Kyri ultimately did so. I liked the twist you put on net shade Kyri wasn't throwing say he was going to move. To his new teammate well, here's what you have to understand about sade say to simply something that intercepts light and so while it might have been a bouquet to k. d., it was say to the time of the past over. Sir. You didn't go to an Ivy League school. Good. Point here. is going to speak at least speak in totality at least speaking totality of Lebron's greatness because when you really look at the devil does lie the details you might find a different story. I have a full screen, my own because everybody wants to. Talk about making the shot, let's talk about Lebron James and how he makes the site in the last minute to tire take the lead in the final two minutes of the fourth quarter over time in playoffs. James is actually better than Kevin Durant even three pointers why what Lebron has nine for Nineteen K. D. is three for nine thousand nine, hundred Lebron have a forty seven percents point percent to Katie six t okay. Yes. Katie is mildly better at the two shot in the last two minutes of the game. But when you get down to the bottom of that the broncos actually forty five percent from the field to Katie's thirty three percent I don't need a full screen anymore. Here's what I need. I need you to understand the troops Kyrie did hit the biggest shot of that game in that finals and Mooney's getting Kudos to him. But let's not also forget about what it takes to get. There is not just about that one shot it's about the minutes, the seconds, the moments that precede that one shot understand kyrie. You wouldn't have been here without Lebron and also understand when you looking at that Keller K. D. There was a killer grade, K. D. in those same moments as well and. in my courtroom career Irvine is guilty and he guilty of Martha is interesting. What he's guilty of I don't know if it's a felony or misdemeanor listen to me here. I know he's guilty of rocks and hiding his hands. CEO Hands over there you know who it? But you know what? I'm going to drop it down to a misdemeanor given probation. You know why? Because in my world, you can take a shot at someone. Shading them if this real and think about that that was a twist and turn into where we are in the reality of this conversation, I give you an example and it's a football example just Gordon, your member Josh Gordon We all know Jobs Gordon. Every day, Josh. Gordon goes from the New England patriots to the Seattle seahawks and immediately he notices something in practice and in a game situation these like. Seems like in part of my career I'm trending upward in quarterbacks. Now, what did he mean by that Josh Gordon, is the spacer Gordon likes the deep ball when he's healthy when he's midst healthy and when he's available on the field. And then everyone took it at Ram wooded and it was really a conversation of hock. Can you say anything about top rating to great goats? Russell Wilson whose amazing who's great who's elite but not the goat you can't be great at something but not great at Everything Jazz Gordon was highlighting, which is facts. Russell Wilson, better deep ball top priority but it sounded like insanity because you want our show people talk in totality. What we just heard from Kyrie Irving. That's why he could walkout lock courtroom on probation only because he went new us in this conversation and said as great and Lebron is there are moments where he's not the greatest, and if you don't want to go in dive into that, I will take you into that pool. I the problem that I have with your full screen can we get back with? The problem screens? Difficult. Can't. Mac. Is is we're talking about. So we know all the Games Lebron James has played in far more playoff game. Yeah. Then Kevin Durant. Far More Finals Games he doesn't play. A. Finals game. And you've only taken that many shots of it doesn't tell me. The situation expect that out. So I need context. This is the same as saying Anthony Davis is one of the most clutch shooters has the clutch gene along with. ME. Unit doing. What senators? Let me look a slicked please let me loonier. Marcellus. Let me address this. Let. ME. Let me adjust over today. I didn't actually go to an ivy not because I couldn't have also didn't. Ib School kids since lick once contact this guy I wanNA talk about since nineteen ninety, six, nineteen, ninety-seven final two minutes up a game to tie or take the lead Number One ray Allen twelve twenty one fifty seven percent number two big shot. Bob Robert. Ory Fifty four percent number three the third best player percentage. Wise from three to tire. Take the lead slick any ricky from nine hundred, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, six Lebron the king. James. Forty seven percent. So if you want context context now, if I can go to the bottom of the list, you've got Kevin Durant fifteen percent and the only person saving. KP. Archer Damasus Russell Westbrook at seven percent because he's one for fourteen. So sick if you want context baby I got context I just wasn't what you went to Columbia classes but don't worry Dr, with the Texas study extra long because I knew how to see you this day x Longhorn. By. The way that was one of the greatest flexes of all time, but this is also the Emmanuel Acho who was telling us how you cheat. Code you're. Talking. Like a confession to me to be honest with you. When you mentioned Robert Ory. I can think of all of the great shots that he's made like they have them in my mind I can see them. Ray Allen the same. Lebron James for that percentage what are the big shots that he's hit? Kazlo? What are those moments? I'm Brad. Ozcelik I got you against the. Shot. One against Detroit. That's the one that stands out. Let me let me tell why. Multiple thing when you are inundated with greatness, it is hard to dispel the greatest moments all. We talked. About ally manning it's very easy to remember alive past David. tyree I believe it was Marcella catches the ball on his Is A it's very easy to discern between allies greatest moments because there weren't that many of Tom Brady pick one dealers too hard to pick one because there are so many it's hard for you to remember Lebron's greatest big shots because the has so many memories slick. It's not just you don't have Alzheimer's is not you're not getting older you're okay. Okay. Keeping the bills make sure your diet dieters proper to make sure your memory sharp is not on you saw on the browns greatness. I understand that but. Here's the thing. This is really what it is. We we've we've diverged from this being a debate or conversation about where K. D. Kyri and Lebron rank as far as clutch shooters k.? D. Among the GM's has been voted I in the in the preseason survey four times Lebron has never held that position he's never had more than seventeen percent of the vote. So I don't think there's any question that D., is considered a better clutch shooter than Lebron James The question is where does she? FIT, in that equation and I do believe aside from the fact that Kyrie is starting to sound more and more like cheech and Chong's long lost brother with this come on man. It's a bummer man can we all live our lives? I mean. He's he's he's kind of killing me with that. But nonetheless, do believe what Kyrie was doing here and it's Marcellus. His point is he was elevating himself as opposed to. Knocking Lebron down. He's pointing to Katie and going yeah you know what? I'm really good. But that guy's actually better and by default he is throwing shade at Lebron I don't think that was the intention of the entire thing it was don't forget about me. I'm as good as this guy that I'm playing with them man I just wanted to still argument for me. It was really simple. It's almost like somebody's talking about Larry Bird Imagine Johnson who's a better shooter Duh is almost in that situation because Larry Bird over forty percent six times magic never did that. But someone will take that. If they're in their feelings be like what you're trying to say that couldn't shoot and you're like, wait a minute. All I'm saying is that is holy grail territory where airflow shooters the only way he can prove your shooter in NBA is shoot over forty percent from three or when the of. Contest, there's no way to do it but Kyrie's like I dated another way I wanNA championship off of my son and Y'all still won't give me props Oh yeah. I'm going to take it to the streets coming up the eagles are battered and bruised will tell you if that means. Carson. Wish to get past. The forty nine Hale speak for yourself. Hyundai. Back to speak for yourself presented by Hyundai let's talk about Carson Wentz struggle big time this season. But on Sunday, he might have a legit excuse. Eagles are coming into their match up on a roll with the niners seriously injured former practice squad player Greg Ward is now phillies top wide receiver if that wasn't enough one of Winston's top target tight in Dallas, Gordon is on the. Chose Carson Wentz, get a pass this weekend because of the eagles. Injuries. Again he should. But I'm not making an excuse I'm giving you an explanation aw track with me Marcellus the biggest problem in Carson Wentz, his career his perception is actually how good he was last year really. Carson Wentz I quarterback, in NFL, history to throw for four thousand yards with no five hundred receivers and so what that did was that told. The GM Jeffrey Larry, the owner, and you meet the fans the analysts did, oh, this is easy because Carson. made it. Look easy. Oh, we made the playoffs without. We made the playoffs with an aging Sean Jackson Oh good gotta do nothing saw season gotTa make no upgrades we good. No that's what you're saying but the problem is that because Carson Wentz did the impossible and profitable now everybody expects you know me man pastor's Kid Marcella. Think about the story of of water being turned into wine Jesus turned water into wine right? So how the story has it Magic Marcellus if every time you show up to the Party Can you turn Ozark into some Merlot real quick. Can you turn this? Into Chardonnay real quick on. That was lines John Brings the why buy some wine Jeffrey Larry. Howie Roseman. Star receiver. Oh. Hey Jeffrey Larry Hey Howie Roseman. Can you go figuratively by me top-flight receiver because just because Carson wentz turned water into wine last year everybody expects him to do it again this year and that's not on Carson Wentz, he should get a pass because who is he asked? The only past that should be expected to be completed. This weekend is the past we give Carson Wentz right now playing this game without top-flight here's. Bishop when at the end of the sermon, you know he expects holy goes out there somebody to catch might lose their mind and I'm just sitting here like not yet keep talking you ain't got yet big dog you ain't got me stumped. I'm not there yet. You know why? Because I'm not buying it and it's not even about him. Would you say being doing the impossible or improbable is because he can't do what's expected mark I would echo from Wiley. Okay. Here's the thing about Carson whiz injuries whether it's others are Ansari's by himself in his own body, his own fragility. That's the issue with Carson Winston. It's contagious cancerous spread throughout this locker room but I will not let it spread upstairs. This organization. How dare you think that they were paralyzed because they saw Carson Wentz. Last year that four games win them undefeated score thirty seven and thirty four with like you say guys off the streets Austria. But you know what? That's not an excuse in the NFL or reason in nfl one because you were able to overcome that adversity to we have seen teams win a super bowl with Magwar versity eagles off. That's the only team with this much adversity worse. Worse. Had A backup quarterback. How does it get worse like you want you and I will take you back tight mean thousand and ten Green Bay packers team member not still had Aaron Rogers. That got. Lost Sixteen guys on our and if you wanna Google right now, most adversity to a super bowl champion Green Bay packers pop up because this is what happens they win a super bowl or sixteen guys are the next year. You know what they're thinking Oh my God it's own we'll get healthy and we ball out they did fifteen wanted and then losing the playoffs. The point of that story is Greece seeing this team, the eagles overcome adversity we see teams and go away overcome adversity. But how dare you say that the Eagles Organization were prepared for the situation this you're Philadelphia Eagle Lover Do you know a guy by the name of our CIGNA WHITESIDE Why so? Say His name. Sega. Why have we ain't her? Yes. Ten career catches. How Targe. A year and a half. An elite how long and he's not doing a damn thing what row was he drafted around. So second round. Oh God you act like Carson Wentz was not given things around him. For some reason, a second round pick has not been able to hit with Carson Wentz for salaries and causing winces able one month if the last part of last season to overcome this, and now this year is going to drown him for one reason and one reason only this team can not do what the Green Bay packers did. It's Because, they ain't got rodgers type of ability at the quarterback position. Marcellus. That was you think you have a w right? Is what you think you up the. You separate them. All you have is to els James. Sir has both easy and Aligarh. Let me tell you what teach me a liar number want me to win. Marcellus how can you be so lazy and this is Marcellus does his research super bowl team to go through the most advanced. Get a little bit deeper into the house but I know Marcellus cousteau books. So he was talking I did some Google and type in most diversity to a super bowl champion, and after you get past the the videos at the top and all of the packers no, no no no gas. The third thing is Philadelphia Eagles Nick foles overcomes adversity in route to the Super Bowl, you would home google it and Liar. Yes. Wasn't a packer was Carson where he was that Carson Winston was the team on your settings from instead of recent historical. That's what I have on my status for of all stopped using chrome use safari k. just letting you know how do. Your heads everybody. Who got what it takes because I'm curtis blown I want you to know these are the brakes curveball told us that were fifty years ago. These auto breaks you cannot go rostered a roster NFL start talking about who's our? Cowboys have ten guys who are eagles have eleven. About which which God I'm glad into that trip because the San Francisco Forty niners, their opponent Jimmy G. were yet nick Bosa which Richard Sherman. High and so it's like the giants. John Ness this week they play each other. The point of it is if you're GONNA walk into an NFL game and start counting REC-. So who's injured who not Never GonNa win this here's what I have to do because I have to count receive because it matters it's not just that they got hurt it is who got her cowboys without both their starting offensive tackles the. Giants without their star running back. But let me put it in perspective because I got full screens, the Eagles Short in Maine Ladies and gentlemen because now I'm really hammered his point home he goes shorten may just try to digest some this. Obviously you got once you got mile sanders zoom in on the receivers you at home, which is you'll see L. Sean you see the First Round Pick Jalen Raider then it tied into see a guy by the name of Dallas God. Okay. Remember this. Offense Blind Andre diller's left tackle. Left Guard right guard is brandon books. Okay. Now let's look at the eagles debt chart right now that was. That was four months ago. Now, look at their chart right now wait a second receivers Greg Ward Question Mark Question Mark Question Mark, question, Mark Question Mark Question Mark Eagles don't know who's going to play. They're five guys literally out this week tight ends Richard Rodgers. He wasn't there before Dallas Goddard offensive line you're out you're left tackle you're out you're right guard you're out. Your left guard Marcellus is not equal. That is my point out need my full screen. What I need is this gentleman right here is not equal. It's not equal for the forty niners easer their quarterback start seeing their defense and late and team would rely on that pass rush their corner top corner veteran corner. This is a team that is GONNA fall from Defensive Guy Sir. I said a quarterback I just wanted to go by that. We're talking about the running back and more start. The point of this is every day. Out there has s shoes are you want to highlight their issues and here's the worst part about it everyone's dealing with injuries but you want to say hours or worse even the cowboys have ten guys and you look at the forty nine, six guys. But here's the worst part they use that to lowered expectations or give the excuse mattress. Say Explanation Mattress and. When I remember Tom Brady year after year. Finding who knows who am making him a household name that was the thing that last year way that's my big day. I said Tom Brady did a year after year Aaron Rodgers has done it before all is Carson wished you making that type of money? You GotTa have that type of special sauce and we don't see. But here here's the biggest condemnation. The you Marcellus are putting on Carson wentz this Hey Carson Wentz, the impossible that you justed last year. Hey, do that again But nearly the first quarterback in NFL history four, thousand, five, hundred dollars receivers. Now let me say this because. You made a great point. The niners are down a couple of guys. The cowboys are down quarter, but here's the thing. We're losing games. We'd be like Man Head coaching problem, the issue, the issue at hand for Carson is this he's losing his help. If the eagles were down all the defensive guys that has nothing to do with wins the problem is when says help is gone the only the only receiver this week is Greg Ward. He was starting quarterback at the University of Houston that is who Greg Ward is he is not he was not. Brought up to be an NFL receiver, he wasn't even brought up to be a receiver. Dude has been a receiver for two years of his life God. So so hold on when when I see Jimmy Gone C. Depot Samuel Gone. See most that was going in and out Esau Jordan Reed in the lineup is nothing no one cares that that doesn't leave the building. In terms of concern but you wanNA, make it something that we're sitting up here in our hearts supposed to be out for course west. Hey No. When you bring up, you keep bringing up that quarterback in College Greg Ward who turned to pro receiver how dare you? How can you confirm them? All have to throw to a former quarterback Tom Brady may Julian Element. Borderline. Hall of Famer. As a former collegiate quarterback Otto. I'm just letting you know no matter how you spin it is still going to be the same thing. It's a ball out there and you got gotta go out there and play it coming up the Cheese Hill Mark Jackson it. Will tell you at the League is catching up to the rain and MVP. Yourself by. steph mustard mustard. Welcome back to speak for yourself. Let's move on Lamar Jackson, who will try to shake off a big loss to the teeth when his ravens go to. Washington Sunday the Martha first fewest passing yards the starter against case the which brought out some criticism this week Lamar fired back saying critics or waiting on your downfall and added quote world's GonNa keep. We don't keep winning joined now by NFL analyst Lavar Arrington but Marcel talked to me is the League finally catching got to Lamar Jack you're not not not at all, but there'd be printing for your downfall and that's what it is. God Lee, how many timing rehashed his own tired dusty narrative of how the Mark Jackson can't play the quarterback position or he's been exposed because you guys are sitting there on the edge of your seat biting your fingernails off just waiting for something bad to happen and the. Well let's talk. Let's go through the timeline of who Lamar Jackson is when he was coming out of college. What did we hear? Right WANNA switch positions wide receiver run back kate play quarterback Oh really. Okay. Come out my first year. Guess what I do I hold a clipboard for Joe flacco half the year other half of the year I'm saving my coaches job and get this franchise direction pointed upward and I go and take us to the playoffs who then after that, we saw him against the chargers and we like. He can't grow even if he plays quarterback, he can't throw what is he doing return form he goes out there. Now only wins the MVP he becomes youngest to ever win MVP and only the second guy I ever to be unanimous and the and now people's like well, yea, he could throw a Yankee play quarterback but he can't keep it up probably going to get hurt I. Don't know if this is sustainable. People are running and waiting for him the lose again the third time to the chiefs, and now you think y'all got your moment since the moment right here because he can't play look at the difference between him and Patrick Mahomes Yucky well, the full screen king is back to let you guys know that y'all takes a wack. This is the same old song for Guy Lamar Jackson last year nuggets MVP last year only the second unanimous MVP look at these lowly performances. We five, hundred, sixty, one yards yet one, forty, three, seven, one, sixty, three, one, zero, five you out there doing and one, forty, five against the Buffalo Bills Mafia guess what he want. The team my point is this y'all gotta dive into your history. You GotTa know what you're talking about for into an amazing season doesn't mean every single game has to be amazing. He had one blip on the radar. The rest of this is going to be greatness as usual. Here's what I will say the League has not caught the Mark Jackson No, no, no no no the catching up to Lamar Jackson Marcel us when I was a kid I was swimming pool back in Dallas and Oh, my God I got stung by a beat right and then it kept. Buzzing around but my brother told me h allow it can't stand you again see the issue with Lamar Jackson is that I think you're still hearing the buzz, but the question is does he still have the staying full screen Cain let's talk about Lamar Jackson whether or not he still has this thing because Marcellus chivalry off to understand would yardage disappointed at all on pace for three thousand passing yards. He was last year on pace for a thousand rushing yards like he had last year but the steamed of touchdowns is decreasing and diminishing he's only pays for twenty six passing touchdowns. Now, he only has zero right now. Obviously, we'll get some rushing touchdowns not gonNA sit here and lie company only has. Seven. Last year here is the issue at hand as not. That Lamar Jackson doesn't still buys see because a be even without a stink it's still gonNa scare you when the Mark Jackson takes field he's still going to scare you be without a stink still gonNA put a little bit of fear in your heart especially if you allergic the Mark Jackson when he takes the field with those highlights hurtling people spin moves fantastic plays still gonNA put fear. In the hearts of Defense of coordinators but the fact of the matter is defensive coordinators don't have to worry as much at at this point at this junction and time if Lamar has his steamed because that's stinks touchdowns right now he's only on pay for twenty six compared to thirty six last year right now we only as thorough rushing touchdowns seven last year. The issue wasn't Jackson still got that buzz. It isn't have defenses caught cut Lamar Jackson on. Up to Lamar Jackson absolutely. Defense is it's inevitable that defenses catch up to any opposite scheme or any offensive player. Maybe outside of Randy Moss or maybe Jerry Rice or berry standard there there might be a COUPLA. there. Can't, out retract. Buddy. says. I'll say about the bee's sting analogy right one A. B.. Is Buzzing are actually more dangerous as a buzzer than a Stinger because once they staying you, they lose their Stinger and they died they don't live. So on key buzzer. De. Go look it up. Go look it up. The expert. Bill would. Be Moving around with without a single. Pants. Up. So the point is, is that if you're hearing a buzz then if you're thinking, you might get stung. There's a possibility that you can still get stung. You should've used the loss a WAAS can repeatedly. SEATTLE. Alert. National. The. You know what's even more intimidating than Hawass or be a mosquito I get more nervous unnerved mosquito. Base. You're making no I'm not your. Point. My point is this Lamar Jackson right now doesn't have the same thing you talk about after the they think you they die. That's to a degree my point Cam Newton. Kansas. June. PC's and after that MVP season where he accounted for forty five touchdowns, he had twenty four to argue that he figuratively statistically died Matt Ryan Mvp in two thousand, sixteen year after Cam Newton. He accounted for thirty eight touchdowns MVP season the year later he accounted for twenty you could argue that he figuratively died, but my point is came back making Asu. Jackson. Still but. Still had Lamar Jackson still has the like he's more like a mosquito. I'm GonNa Tell You why? Because if he hit you with that mosquito bite, you swell up in every single place that he hit you. Right. So it's more comparison to that than it would be getting stung by be I. think he still has the ability to to move around the NFL in and that way where he is an intimidating factor to these other teams that are out there by no means has he been caught up to where he is going to be. Contained to the point where he's a non factor in a game if you're taking the chiefs game and you're using that as your. disqualifier diminish you have disqualified diminish. That cheese pretty much are GONNA play this. This this blade setup. Patrick. Mahomes in this offense is running you have got so much pressure on you as an offense as a team because you know the minute you put that off back on the team there's a possibility that they're going to score is GonNa get a little bit bigger so I don't quite him not having that buzz or having now ability to continue to bite when he gets onto your skin based off of what happened in this Kansas City game. Yes. Amazing. My man up here I'm GonNa Start Trending going you. HASHTAG HASHTAG exaggeration. So we know who we talked. Situation you are guilty of right now exaggerating once again, about Russia's downs all through three weeks, he has zero rushing touchdowns when last year through three weeks, he only had one what the hell you talking about. So here's the thing. Man. How Good the segment is he had a pool growing up grads generational wealth. I love that. Here's the thing we are going to talk about what we saw against the chiefs game were once again Lamar Jackson had under seventy five quarterback rating. He's had seven of those three, his rookie year three and envy season and one this year and you know what his totals were. Three tests thousand seven games, six hitter as seven games and one hundred, forty, two yards per game average and guess what that has added up to who we think Lamar. Jackson is the second best quarterback in the League. I think back to that polar. Artery Marcellus go to break without the learn Marcella tricks Marcellus. We'll try to drop the MIC dance on you go to break before you have time to. Say. The difference between that one test down over the course of three games and deal touchdowns over the course of three games. You're a smart man again went to Columbia is five touchdowns on the season. Again, making my point you when Lavar talk to for ten minutes just to further my point young up a story. From his teammates you'll be tell you, we like his mindset but game to. Speak for yourself. Marceau's widely here they'll be staying. Over there 'twas out Let's get back to the days for our big story. Lakers will try to take a commended to lead over the heat tonight in the Bron- has made it know that he's not playing around on his quest for four hundred king. How Chris Hayes reports he told his teammates during game. One's blowout. The tone down the ethics adding quote stay locked in this bleep paint over. This is the Bras Tim final show. He would know about staying focused listen to this. Message or life experience I've experienced. Moments in my career. Finals Games. Or? You OUGHTA momentum in the world felt like you had a game control. One play here at one play there. Could change the course of the series change the course of a game. And one in particular that always. For me. Is Game To. Two thousand eleven finals. Bars me to this day. So. Always talking about the best life has experienced experienced a lot so. That's what prompted me to be ym today. Is Osso Lebron's mindset look focus at hand I. Love Lebron's mindset big Bro. You taught me that your experience expertise and the expertise James experiences his expertise. It's one thing for me to hear something but Marcellus growing up in class I realized I'm a visual learner to let me learn and see exactly what Lebron was talking about two thousand eleven NBA finals. The heat are winning they're killing Dallas Mavericks we can run the clip they killing the mask didn't wait about the hit a shot in the corner. To go up eighty, eight to seventy three, we got the Clinton run the clip. Okay. Just want to hear me I want to you want to see. He came to the way the way here's the shot. Yeah. He listened he keeps the hand up. Is Broken. Then the Mavericks on a twenty, two to five run capped off Black Lebron said by this layup his shot with three point five seconds left mavs go on to win for the next five games and win. Sissel Lebron says because of that moment. Ron's experience in this moment Marcellus is his expertise, but let me give you one more. Everybody knows right now that Lebron is embodying the late great Kobe Bryant everybody knows that. Well, let's go back to the two thousand and nine NBA finals. Lakers are playing the Orlando Magic we've seen the clip right now is going viral on social. When Koby says jobs not finished he's interviewed by he's asked a question by an interview after interview after they go up against the Magic Lakers are clear favorites against the magic magic shouldn't even have been in that game the magic had actually. Not out the MVP Lebron James The magic of three seed, the broncos A one-seat. Okay. Track with me. Kobe played for the Lakers Lakers clear favorites over the magic right now, Lebron plays for the Lakers playing the heat clear favorites over the heat heat knocked out the one seed MVP honest. Let me give you a wily ism a full learned from his his mistakes but the Wiseman learned from the mistakes of others are the Brian James is actually learning from the perfection of others being Kobe Bryant. Kobe be up to against demanding a clear favourite. The magic knocked out Lebron. James. The MVP. That's why Kobe's facing the magic Kobe goes up to when he's like what's there to be happy about jobs not finished Lebron is one. Oh, over the clear favourite Miami. Oh, he's clearly the favorite over the heat. The heat knocked out the MVP honest loom. Rhonda's like what's there to be happy about knobs not finished I love the mindset. Who took their took me a lot of places. I'm some of them with you. I love his mindset before differ reason because his mindset just tells me frankly basically, this series is over I'm gonNA. Want me attempts. Yeah I got money in the bank. Imagine being in a final series and he have a concern of how many times their teammates swirling towels side. Effort you've been locked in on the field before whenever you can stop being. So locked in performance and you start with. Iraq. showed a pairs. The cheerleaders talk some noise game was over right. So it was amazing to me that Lebron is really leaking that this series is over. So now more start creating a masterpiece. What's that masterpiece make perfect because we know is not gonNA look. So perfect in terms of opponent and competition people are gonNA pick holes at your plan the Miami. Heat really in a finals. What is he trying to do? Now let's stop them out this competitive and it's also go out there and do it in high character. So it looks flawless a masterpiece but let's talk about the lane you brought up which I really love and has brown is trying to really go out there and be poetic about about my experience and how you just my best teacher. Also no one thing about experience some things you need to unlearn, and this Lebron James leading to unlearn what he felt in two thousand and eleven. Here's PTSD. He's KT TST about what the Hell The Dallas Mavericks did to him at the him into way. If you fought him for that. Yes. I do and I'm a fault for this reason all things aren't the same look. My experience growing up was urban experience experience gunshots come Bob me coming around me all around I wasn't emotionally available for many people because I had to survive before I had to thrive. That was a mentality I had to internalize, and then I got into the real world as someone else as Abra. That was just a car backfire. She allow me sometimes you get triggered because you have learned one way that you need to be unconditional from learning to go for being in relation boy my nickname was dead dude. If you that means I like hung out a lot and I met a lot of people when I was hanging out. But when I get into marriage I, gotTa unlearn I can't just say, Hey, you did say thing Vanessa did in two thousand and four so. The. Point is look. All things are not the same I understand you feel like you're getting way ahead of your skis, but you not brother unlearn it. But here, here's why disagree with that? Marcellus, because it's Kinda like you can't get you can't only dog goes back to his folly. Only, like you can't make that same mistake twice do not let the same thing beat you Lebron got the biggest more the biggest scarlet letter on Bron. James Career is that two thousand eleven final. 'cause I'm a mafsfan waiting for the mavericks to redeem what happened in those ticks when the heat the mavericks the Maverick were up to Oh I was waiting on I watched that game like my life depended the whole series life depended on it. That's the biggest car that letter Lebron's career keep in mind marcellus although the Lakers walked the heat game wine. They did give up a fourteen four run in the. Little crunchy about France. Mike. They did give up a fourteen four run in the fourth quarter that ended at the seven minute mark. Wait hit that shot at the seven minute mark in two thousand eleven. I think Lebron an early similar remember when y'all can attest to this life. I don't know when you're driving down in your car down the highway or something like we have been here before I can't tell you why. Thin, here before I think what is like snapped? Here. And I know how the sense not GonNa let this again. In that same similar fashion or well let's bring in our guy slick rick the Bucher. Slick. Are you post traumatic stress my Lebron is or do you like his mindset hitting a game too? I am all in with his mindset. It's his actions where he loses me. You full screens I have full screen. Video. I have been. Let's look at a couple of things that transpired in this game starting with at the end of the first half up by. Seventeen. Past the clock Oh. Let's go. Let's Flash Sean. M Let's flex them on a little bit. We're excited. Okay. MIC give you that. But now we got Kelly Olympic and I'm going to go into my hand one mixed. Bag and I'm just GonNa just GonNa waste this possession. I'm GonNa Dance on you a little bit. I'M GOING TO RUB my Jersey with the ball right out there in front of you and say you can't snaps that I'm just going to step back and throw casual three up there that has no chance of going in. You can't just talk about it. You have to be about it, and by the way I give you more video about the SO-SO defense. He played in the fourth quarter that resulted in a minus nine in the plus minus or the fact that he went hunting strictly for that tenth assist so that he could get the triple double, which he'd never finally got played all eighty three seconds. In the fourth quarter you know who played more than that for the Lakers nobody thirty, five year old superstar spent ten and a half minutes chasing a stat and playing so so defense. So this whole thing about, hey, we gotta be locked in GonNa, take seriously. You demonstrate that not just tell me Slick U. and sell notice better than Ny. You're older a little bit more experience that bringing my age I. Got Keep. Keep it real. This your parents can tell us something that your parents can tell a child something and not necessarily abide by it. Themselves going back, growing up, get drug in the Church Mama pops you better not make no salary reading here you know what? I'm saying, but then we're just thinking. Talking Talk. Talk Y'all talking because sometimes the authoritarian is allowed a little bit more of a lease than the younger ones because they know how far they can take because they've been there before whether I am saying that is fair or not. That is true. You end sell both know that. I know the length of this leash I know I can wile out the little bidding games I. Know I can wild out a little bit on defense but I know how far I can take it because I'm wiser I'm older I have more experience I know that I can play with this not burn but if y'all play with your might, that's why slick I don't necessarily agree with what you're saying because of Ron James Video, before he knows, Hey, you play around too much. It's all bad. There's a limit have a little bit of fun but you have too much fun. It'll turn into disaster. I agree with you but here's the problem you've got a number of guys that have never been on the stage before Kyle Kuzma, an Alex Caruso what's the example that you are setting for them and I'll take it back to that same two thousand eleven series. This is what caught me and nobody saw it. I didn't well I saw it but I don't have video of it it. was practice after game four when the Mavericks won and tied up the series everybody showed up for practice Lebron was late. Then they stood around waiting for him and he was on the sidelines still putting shoes on still joking around they finally started practice without him and I remember distinctly Dwayne Wade standing there tie in his shorts and looking over like and shaking his head and getting into it. He wanted to demonstrate look we gotta be about it and I'm going to demonstrate how you be about it. I would like to see Lebron take he's he's seen enough and done enough that he should follow that example ultimately, and here's the other part and I got more video here. This all this was spurred by the fact that he barked at. KC, and Rajon Rondo when they screwed up on a switch that allow Tara. Tyler. Herro to drive to the basket and Lebron had to come over and help. But let's see the entire play and I explained to you why Lebron really was upset about this situation. So. The reason that he came open was because they screwed up Switzerland, the other side but the reason Lebron is mad is because this Dan Rookie in this game just freaking Danced on him and got to the. So. What were you really upset about in this situation I need I just need Lebron to come straight on these things and not reflect on I just got danced on by by a rookie and so now we're going to get mad 'cause you guys messed up the switch on the other side of the floor. Lebron is guilty of what a Lotta pairs guilty of having two sets of rules in the House we know don't rules and then it's the kids rules and the kids they learned from what they see now from what they hear and so if you get into this situation, if you Lebron James this also started when Anthony Davis told the FRIZZ family. Section. Make some noise. This game is over quote it's over and then all of a sudden you got Dwight Howard out there who's turned into the. Mix tape passer, and then Lebron is like look y'all go onto far wooded but in a bubble situation where you're trying to create energy any way you can, it's a fine line between those guys get high when they know damn. Well, they're not gonNA contribute to this championship or those guys need to sit there on mute while they wash the king do his thing. So coming up DOC rivers wasn't unemployed for a day maybe. We'll tell you if he can save the sixers nets because. Back to speak for yourself going back to the NBA where Doc rivers did not take long a land on his feet it was like, oh, by the clippers and a mutual decision earlier this week yesterday, he reportedly agreed to a five year deal to be the sixers next head coach doc coming off a disappointing second round exit, and it's going to a team that was sweat. He'll by the Celtics in the first round so. Yeah talk to meet dot say the sixers know can't say the sixers and duck east coast my clippers. So obviously I looked at them and favorable ways and now see over here in Philadelphia I'm GonNa keep it one hundred. K Say with the boys are going through over there. If you talk about embiid and Simmons Right, now I mean I just don't see clearer case of water oil to mix that in that situation where you WanNa talk about the injury concerns for both guys now unfortunately or you WanNa talk about the commitment concerns from both guys. But this is a doc rivers question right now, and he's still a friend of mine and I respect his work respect as resume but I have to poke at some of the holes in this resume. Doc left the Los Angeles Clippers in dissension. Once again, the last error of the clippers which was lob city the. Left the Clippers in dissension to the point where people were mad at Chris Paul Start Not Liking Chris Paul NBA President. Player. For instance in the Great God family man like Chris Paul. was actually looked at a negative light because he has so much on his shoulders in terms of trying to restore or rebuild what the clippers had in terms of winning atmosphere in terms of culture. But more than that the philosophy differences were doc rivers is an issue and analytics battle that we saw from Doc rivers is an issue. To be there to support you to help you to feel you instead of something that you combat and something that you go against and we saw Doc rivers in that playoff series against the different nuggets. Look at the analytics that suggested a maybe you want sit Montreal. Herald. Right now it plays. By a large margin by easy numbers, counting numbers and instead doc rivers went with his gut his resume he went with the fact that he was one of the six championship coaches on the sidelines and the NBA all that said man. When you look at the situation in Philadelphia that they're asking for him to fix and the disappointment a couple of times maybe all three times even Boston including when it one championship Boston maybe disappointment when you've got a big three, I, look at all three of those eras and I realized that Doc rivers didn't overachieved any of them. How can he do it in Philly Marcella sometimes winning a championship is the worst thing that will happen to. People, because they will continue to get opportunities that they didn't necessarily deserve and Doc rivers save the sixers absolutely not. But this isn't just an indictment on doc rivers y'all track with me dot waivers medical expert design rivers work in the training staff is Doc Rivers, guidance counselor because the two things that each other the sixers me wrongfully team the two teams at the sixers need right now medical help and guidance further to superstars rock with me. Joel embiid he's only played forty five percent of the game since he got into the League Ben Simmons, he's only played sixteen nine percent of the game. Since he got into the League, you cannot win if your best players don't play furthermore and it's been on record and off records since new in Philly played their them to cast in even speak out. I do now for a year and a half there to Kath Literally Ben Simmons enjoy that is literally didn't even talk talk but now let's get to the meat of it all. The sixers haven't advanced past the Eastern Conference semi's in thirty five seasons. They've only got one is that along five seasons? That's one that young. I was there. And Thirty Five seasons Doc rivers he was in the clip city chip city seven years. The fact of the matter is the sixers. They can't do it how to combine with the sixers can't do with another person who can't do it either and expect it. Maybe the blind will lead the blind to the proper destination makes sense. It doesn't make sense. Doc rivers covers a lot of ills. Any situation like coming after Vinny del Negro to the clippers he covered the ills of why can't the clippers get over to up and bring championship coach even if he doesn't get them over the Hump he's still asthma for. That because I think what you just uttered is the biggest mistake that everybody has you bring in a championship coach Dougherty Championship coach. Championship. But come on now I mean and I get no, get no indictment on anybody because I think. Thailand. Some great things. Tight lose the championship coach. Lebron James Friend Championship coach also, Lebron James now again Eric pollsters proving that he the very good head but like Lebron James Win, a lot of people titles your. Way So Katie Rondeau, Array Allen, and Paul. Pierce probably was going to get anybody chip, but that's not fair to do that too. Now what the NBA way is, and then now hold doc accountable of what Phil Jackson you want to know who he had Michael Jordan. It's Rush Shaquille O'Neal win a championship anywhere else know that so so so here's the thing. That he wanted to wanted it in Chicago in anyone player Steve Kerr. Low. But that's eight but remember what Steve Kerr was. Along, but it's not as if the Warriors Mr Bean all here's the thing. But if the if you look at this, Steve Kerr was available for somehow someway he was available, would you not grab him for lease process not cover and maybe he'll get you back to that situation with lesser players. This is great duo that their attitude needs to change and what did. They say about attitude attitude determines altitude. How would his team climb is based on the commitment from those two guys and maybe doctor bring and so that is where I agree with you can do better than I don't know probably any NBA coach as a older revered black man is try to lead some young lost black men because be has shown us that he is. On like NBA does I'm just keeping IT A. Key fifty, the back of the matter is the eagles issue like you said, it is not the eagles the frigging sixers issue like you said, it is all in here and let me just one of the most talented players that we have ever seen Yeah Ben Simmons. He ain't got a jump shot, but defensively, incredibly talented player get into the buggies town to play the sixers issue is not skill. The sixers issue is your to stars don't get along your biggest star in Joel. EMBIID is just ahead case tweet NAFTA Games before you even. Guess a showers and Isis his knees. He's already on already on twitter. So if you WanNa tell me Marcellus it. Doc rivers is a revered father. Figure is going to be able to disciple these young players and mature them meant sure. What we know is doc rivers hasn't really built teams to be great doc rivers. Sorry. His record was sorry with the Celtics he was inundated with four future hall of famers will three pending on what you decide. Rondo is inundated with three future hall of famers. One A chip didn't want to win another one and that was that, but the thing is you got to. Look at it from the pool of candidates and it beats the alternative in many ways because he protects you while you're still trying to figure this out why you have young stars in their prime and you're committed to build around him shadows Elton Brand guess what you have to do find someone who can somehow someway make this work doc rivers would accurate what his resume and least buys you enough time and they buy into that think about it bias hairs best years were with the clippers were dot you maybe you can agree all. Let me ask you don't you believe good is the enemy of great. Yes but in the all tastes good except once there's only one great is going to be the Lakers this year everybody else got to go back to the drawing board coming up. Facing the touchdown happy chiefs on Sunday what's Your Cam? Newton can hang with patch home. Welcome back to see for yourself, the chiefs are a seven point favorite against the Patriots according to Fox bit. Patrick mahomes coming off a five touchdown performance and Cam. Newton. Brace for him ahead of their match, take listen. To. The. Game I think ease shun light on them on the new wave of of quarterbacks and. It's is just fun to watch and not only that you know he has a lot of merit to to what he does. It's not like he's just back there just arcade game as. Sometimes, it looks like it but he knows exactly what he's doing. He's manipulating the defense. You know that's The same thing that the Dan Marino's used to do the obviously the Tom Brady's Aaron. Rodgers you know those guys really have so much demand offense. The bars with us, auto, you expect him to hang with. Patrick Mahomes after he leaves the Blair witch. Project. Man. If there's not a chance. Is Not an indictment on Cam Newton but you're talking about Patrick Mahomes, who is he's thought another level right now Patrick mahomes only the second time in his career five total touchdowns more than three, hundred, eighty, five yards. That's what he did against the Ravens. Last week Patrick Mahomes is in his where we'd like to call back but I'll call it a suitcase because he and a whole lot more than just a little bad when I'm thinking about this Lamar Jackson reference, the chiefs and Patrick Mahomes. Kryptonite. But if Cam Newton the superman than Patrick, mahomes is really about to beat a Kryptonite because there's this then impossible to hang with what that Mahomes is doing right now leave you with a final really quick, statistic Cam Newton? Here's a dual threat quarterback. He can run he can pass well, Cam Newton total yards on average two, hundred, Eighty, eight Patrick mahomes passing yards on average two, hundred, ninety nine is not even really a competition I think Campbell try to throw a fight they'll try to throw some punches but eventually he's GonNa tire out and. Keep. Rolling. Man Yes. He can hang would Patrick Mahomes, go cam, go get this but there's no. I in team but there is a me and team and this is not gonNA, Eagle Game it's not going to be the air force goes out there who could pull the most touchdown passes because you're not gonNA keep up with Patrick mahomes that way and win if you're patriots no we. Got A call army on this one is going to be the ground game baby army fatigues out there. You GotTa think about how the Patriots have been able to beat the Kansas City chiefs neutralizer cheese. In comparison we always show how to ravens are struggling against him and how Lamar Jackson is three against Patrick? Mahomes well, the Patriots in their last three as to what against them. Because they average over one hundred, seventy yards in the run game one, seventy, six, one, seventy, three, two wins when they only everage ninety four, that was a loss. So this is going to be a ground game performance and they're going to need to contributions of Cam. Newton. In the ground game when you look at the stat sheet, it may not look like he kept up with Patrick Mahomes Patrick mahomes probably go out there and throw three four touchdowns and have three hundred plus air yards but in terms of running the ball and take in their ego from them, that's how the Patriots have to go out there and win this game. Yeah. I'm in total agreement with you Marcellus. Gang Right. Cam is going to be a top boy time. Goes Ashen right also. The running game is definitely gonNA be imperative to them having an opportunity to win another point to think about going into this game. The Catholic city chiefs are if you look at them to court DNA of what they are, they're counterpuncher. They don't really do too much in the first and third quarters of gain. It's the second the fourth quarter they've never been outscored and any one of those two quarter. Why is that I don't know but it seems like they take that first quarter they adapt they adjusted come out and they hurt you take that hat that third quarter. Okay. You adjusted to us what are you doing in the third? Quarter. They're just to you only one team is titled. So this New England Patriots Dame is going to have to come out, hit him in the mouth early on the first and on the third quarters of these games but they're going to have to control the game in the second quarter. They can do that. They can win this game and I think Cam Newton is the type of quarterback execute that as the leader. The quarterback of the Marcellus he's told me there's no I in team, but there's a what me there's a means. There's also an eight and team and Patrick mahomes going to eat matt and team and Cameroon's GonNa. Need that 'cause it's going to be exhausted chasing mahomes. Amazing team and can have enough good enough. To keep up with Padma home and there's an ETA and team because going to be like how long till I can get back home after the. Team. We've we. Newton don't want none of them probably this. I'll. Take. GATOR? Dirty Jerry that gator last week buttress that hill. We'll tell you if we had a problem with next week. Oh. Welcome. Back to speak for yourself. Let's head back to the NFL where Cowboys Defensive Lineman Tristan Hill with not suspended after his gator wrong. Crews Carson with Mattie called dirty cars already on the ground and he'll continue to roll over while holding his leg loaded. For. Carson Damore Adam said his actions with some. Ankle by Lavar back with befell the you have a problem with tristen hills gator roll got a problem with don't ask for Mercy Tristan here. Before. I come with this criticism because guess what big dog I've been no saint situations before how dare you act like it was an accident how dare you act like you ain't trying to get a role and how dare you go out there and say you're not trying to hurt him I say injure him but you certainly would trying to hurt him because I was a nice guy when I played I still am a nice guy but every single Tom I step along that white line. All my pain. I. Wanted Every single player. I ever touch to go to the hospital day and get discharged soon as the game was over and it'd be like fine Sir but I wanted to go out there and hurt people but not to that extent to injure them and that's the problem I have with this. This is not a simultaneous action. This is not in movement pattern of anybody in a normal flow of again you know why? The same reason? Why were you wearing school? They said stop drop and roll why they say Andro because when you hit the ground normally your body say that's enough I'm good. But your mind says now let's his muscles on and activate the core hits out the way. Let's do some Thurs for you to do that you are committed to that at you have told yourself your body has listened that is time to roll all somebody and you know the consequences of doing a gator roll what we saw what happened last week so Yeah I got problems with no mercy big dog only criticism big Bro on what you were thousand percent I got all the problems with this what I hate as when athletes try to act as though they don't have control over their body or some of the most physically gifted coordinated, acrobatic and athletic human beings on the face of the freaking planet and you're going to sit here and act like, Oh, I don't know what I was doing exactly what you're doing, but you want inflict pain. You Got Sixty minutes of game time to. Have to do it after the whistle. Furthermore, there's a quote I really live by again for me once shame on you for me twice shame on me, Tristan he'll. Remember. That happened with two minutes forty seconds in the game I was like man maybe it was an accident maybe he didn't mean to do it intentionally but then we fast forward to what happened just six plays later let's run this clip. When is the late hit hit cheap shot when she got flag for helmet-to-helmet on Russell Wilson that was the time he told me twice if I'm walking down the street and somebody bumps into me budgets into my shoulder and then they keep walking up like maybe he didn't see me accident but then if they go push an old lady down just five later I might Just a prick. Hill even if it was incidental what you did six plays later, complete indictment on the AXA did let's keep it real. No place for I. Don't think a fine is enough I would suspend them at least a game ain't no place for that nonsense and the gang. Bring some reality to the conversation as a civilian as a civilian and as a coach and a debt. Now I am one hundred percent on the same side as you guys. Okay I promise you. But as a player as a player in the trenches, I think it's it's unrealistic to think that some guys on the field aren't carrying the mentality of what what Tristan did and and I'm beyond just give a couple of quick examples. I've been called every name, but my name, some of the most. Offensive Racial slurs that could ever be called to you. While you're on the ground I have had my ankles turned I have turned ankles. I have had knee bet I have turned knees. I have I have hit people where the sun don't shine and even grabbed and pulled to hurt. Based off of some of the things that were being said or happening during the course of the game football is one of those gladiator sports F for some tradition. Blaming is one of those when you're in the trenches, linebackers can be involved in it. Sometimes, even receivers corners get caught up into it. It can be a little barbaric and I'm not here to to diminish or to to say that that does not exist as a civilian. I look at what he did I thought it was excessive when I saw it in the moment it bothered me but then I started thinking to myself when I was asked well, how did you feel about it? If were to condemn what I saw him doing based upon what I did as a player it Would make me a hypocrite and I don't want to sound hypocritical because for me every single time I got my mind set ready when I left that locker room it was to seek and destroy. There was no inbetween there was no thinking about it. There was no nothing once I got onto that field. If you're a part of the other team, I was ready to thug and bug against you and that was my mentality so I can't find myself. Defending the fact that. It was wrong when as a player? I. Was kind of a savage myself. Hey, look savage to not not like. It sounds like you were I'm not being hypocritical. I evolved in also knew when I was wrong I, was wrong. Even if you step in, you're wrong you stepped into before you're wrong there there's a clean way to inflict pain not always going to that extent where you have to cross the line but speaking of pain. Yesterday I was laid up in the bed and I was watching our TV show. Some pay moments. Some Lavar. ARRINGTON `ISMs. Painful. Let me. ARRINGTON. Airing taste. Says Marcellus isn't here too damn will pull out an ARRINGTON. All right when you suck. Things must change. Talk. Sense. Gate road. That was the worst. Look. Very simple. Very simple onto the point I don't know how you don't like that look. Airtime is there is no. There's no competition for wildly `ISMs dot. com I inside to make our super six picks sticking with the Seahawks who are in Miami Sunday I'll tell give me a winner bobbing that'll seahawks thirty five to fourteen fourteen? Lavar. I'm about thirty eight twenty. Twenty I got thirty eight to thirty notice seahawks defense is trash going gonNA give up some points but they're still GonNa win this game. All right. Make sure you get your picks in before kick-off Sunday for your chance to win Terry Bradshaw thousand dollars if top stories, scores and more Goto. The foxborough. One Coming up the Jimmy will end the week with Dawson today's show. It's GonNa be fun already know. Before we go bringing ankle Jimmy. What are your thoughts on today's show? Oh Man Look here. Here's. Here's my thoughts. Can we all just come together and agreed there's no level that Lavar Arrington won't stoop to the point. Man Remember that theropod three months ago when he started telling the story, he started talking about him building step on his in his house about time it was done. He built swimming pool. Now. You're asking the day about Lamar Jackson about time. He gave his explanation he explained to us why the Honeybee was in short supply in. North. America. Let me, tell you. Put. Yourself co-host killer I've heard it but I'm a tell you what every time you. Ain't nobody happy then Lavar Arrington. Okay. I'm telling you man you better watch your back with this dude. is getting too comfortable talking about airing. On. What level was not Paying leaker.

Tom Brady, Clippers + Ty Lue, Big Ben, Browns/Steelers, Le'Veon Bell, LeBron James

"It for yourself presented by Hyundai. alleged. That was sweet bar. We got a packed show right here. So let's get started with Tom Brady, who will be facing Aaron Rodgers for only the third time in his career Sunday. When the bucks host the packers on, Fox? Brady is widely considered to be goat but that status doesn't seem like a big deal to packers wide receiver to. Adams Adam said quote I don't care if it was nate Peterman or Tom Brady on the other side. Team fear. Tom. Brady. Who I like I like I like that that bold statement and Davante Adams put out there. You shouldn't still fear Tom Brady you still though respect Tom Brady let me let me tell you the nuts. Out and the game of football, there is the figure of speech, any given Sunday. Difference is what Tom Brady it was every given Sunday because you knew Tom. Brady was going to ball every given Sunday however. Tom. Brady now it is he may ball on any given Sunday week one, two touchdowns two picks we to one touchdown. One pick then starts to ball we three three touchdowns, five touchdowns one pick but then we five one touchdown and no big Tom Brady know what you get. Is it hi, Tom Brady used to get it every week week in week out she made you fear him. But now Tom Brady I'm not so scared I could talk to Y'all America. But I'd rather show your. We can take a look use saints. Got Tape, it's better than a full screen we Marcellus Tom Brady Ken do what used to the field out Tom Brady he can't make that throw anymore it turns into a pick six. Rotate. Watson Tom Brady what used to be able to do he can't look at it against the saints game to North Dinkins. He wait on it feel doubt Tom Brady off his back foot to feel doubt as you're throwing from the field going the route it's about twenty seven yards in the air. Oh Pick Gimme that I need that see Marcel is bunny Tom used to be able to make that throw in a sleep feel doubts not a big deal but now then things the other way for six. So I don't fear Tom. Brady, because he can't do it used to be able to do still respect him though and revere him as a go. Wow. Amazing. How you look at Tom Brady different uniform. Think that's not the same guys. Not you fall victim to that as well. Halloween, is coming it is don't be fooled by all the was. People. The cost you better fear Tom. Brady do you understand who Tom Brady still is? Who is Oh, this is the same Tom Brady who was going out there right now and in terms of his success, let's say let's start with the deep ball. So she wanted to show some film that took forever to get to good luck. Brady has thrown the same amount of deep passes that have been completed as Aaron Rodgers. Oh Mr. Deacon Dunk top right everyone says, all you can do as long handoffs. Why does he have eighteen twenty art or plus completions? Say S Air Roger So this is get that myth out the way. Now, let's talk about Tom. Brady turns of what he's been doing. Every single game already has two games with three plus passing touchdowns. This season Oh walked Tom Brady's doing it. Have to fared as God. It's the same Tom Brady was office player of week Oh, we don't have to fear this Guy Tom. Brady is going out there and learning on the fly and still have an impact that is going to lead this team hopefully to a divisional championship, you know what that means. That means all of a sudden. It's time for chance in the dance in the playoffs. But Tom Brady is fine learning on the fly, but still putting up some great and Marcellus you're far far far off on this. What Tom Brady still has a lot of completions down the field because he has the most attempts. Tom Brady has the most passing attempts leads the NFL in yards traveling twenty in ball's traveling. Twenty yards or further the problem is his passer rating on those same passes or set. So while he does it the most he doesn't the least effectively. But let me give you an analogy which we can both rock with early on when you're in college right when you go to lift weights and even after college is you don't need a spotter right because you know this way then you get under the squire. Taine three, fifteen, three you. rectory fifteen is like, oh, I'm good I'm good start to get older you like spot and I got a spot. You start to look room for anybody come help me who thousand seven Tom. Brady didn't need a spotter eleven Tom Brady need a spotter even as recently as twenty sixteen. Tom. Brady didn't need a spotter didn't need anybody to come help him. You're not looking for spot but now in Tampa, Tom? Brady needs a spotter because if Tom Brady does not have help significant help from his defense who by the way number. Two defense in the national football, they really should be the defense we're talking about, but it's fine. We can talk about the goals because of what he's done in the past Tom Brady now needs a spot marcellus. He didn't need one before that's why I don't fear. Tom Brady because he can't do it like he could do with back when he could do it. Oh Wow man a guy who's top five and touchdown passes thrown this year at the age of forty three is the guy you shouldn't fear. He's taught five ninety. Four fifth but. This is a retired about Komo man he became the oldest player to ever throw five touchdown passes. He just continues to break records and you guys continue to doubt him todd bird is one of only six quarterbacks averaging over two, hundred, seventy, five passing yards a game the other five names I will say are all into MVP conversation? We got Derek Carr we Josh Allen we got Patrick Mahomes, Russell Wilson and Aaron Rogers. So if I'm in a conversation with the guys who are doing it the best and some of them have my age hull you don't fear me now it has to just beat a uniform change. Everyone keeps saying Oh you get into areas book. That's what happens you get into this office Tom Brady has been doing this his last eleven games. We're talking about a guy who had three or more touchdown passes at fourth most in the NFL only. Reason Wilson. So we're going back to two thousand eighteen you said, was he declining then because you're not factor in everything totality Tom Brady is still Tom. Brady a guide is going to lead offense and put your position to win Marcellus. We know this we know Tom Brady is not making the mistake of forgetting what down is in years past we've never seen that a twenty year sample size room ain't never see you in how you started. Not. Making that mistake and we know. We know about Tom Brady what I'm not scared of check down Charlie. Said, he has the most law has attempts and completions. He has the camps and he plans to pass rating as far as past as traveling. I. DO WANNA yards or more but what does he have? He's second in the NFL and targets two running backs. Bruce. Arians offense or a guy who was known to throw the ball down the field, every six plays and Tom Brady second and targeting two running backs out the Backfield to put that in perspective America? Jameis Winston at this point in last last year was twenty third throwing the ball to the running backs meaning James. Wasn't wasn't even looking for them running back and they want me to throw it turned he only had five thousand pass turnout. is in custody. On the body. To play back. Potato. Chip. Tom Brady is my issue is why don't fear him as? Last year years past Tom Brady even if he was gonNA Check Down Charlie, he can hurt you James White Eighty seven receptions. One Year Rob Gronkowski was actually separating from defenders, Tom Brady and could hurt you in the method in which he had to start to operate as a quarterback because his arm was deteriorating. Now, it's just not the same as consistently Tom Brady threw five touchdown passes just two weeks ago. I'm not saying you can't get you. Thank you. What I'm saying is ever you knew Tom Brady was gonna get you every single time back in the day now yeah he might get you. Might not as a defender come on. Let's just be real that'd be. Hey when you do this, you've been lying is sometimes I. We gotta be real name because sometimes I put on a show that's sometime i. Let. Me Just talk to you. You played in the League. You did a D you. Tom Brady right. One here. You're not scared to know why no I would be scared of Tom not. But. No, let's keep it. One thousand. Give it a thousand for me Davante. Adams is told me he scared at Tom Brady think about it think about who you are Devante Adams and you say I don't care if he's Nathan Peterman or Ta Birdie. Wait a minute that means that guy who you're talking about is the man you know why you never say that when the other players sorry do you hear these comments if you're going against the sorry quarterback, let's say Carson Wentz right now no boy. I don't care for Nathan, Peterman a Carson Wentz you say that because you don't punch down but you make these comments in context when you know you're going to get somebody big tough how care fees a manual alto? Mike Tyson this what I'm saying he might be somebody that could bring me pain. The only reason this leaves your mouth as a competitor is you're looking up to that guy. So if you're looking up to him you better feel. The argument you make decent. The problem is this. You're talking about two names I'm not yet. You should no longer fear Tom Brady based on the performance the name. Thom radio whom I got to say Tom, Brady. Beedon. But my iron Mike is still dog but Jochen fearless, Mike? Tyson like you would a fear twenty year old Mike Tyson. But just because you here Mike Tyson you're going to run I'm saying this, you seen the video. I, did a lot. But as far as Tom Brady, the Tom Brady now more if I'm looking at the tape. And we've been in these meetings. For if I'm looking at the tate and I said, Ooh, he just pick six on this field out what am I doing Tom Brady to feel out. Okay. But maybe weight well, one somebody young. Charges Take just two weeks ago twenty nine yards filled out again, not only a pick pick thick advocacy the defender you were now looking your chops I've been in his room. It's like, Oh, I'm not only gonNA steal this Tom Brady's GonNa go on my highlight tape could never heard that before about Tom Brady you never uttered that before and now you can. You just saw Tom Brady after the first game even call it a struggle when he went out there against the saints just the first time you're going to get a team that's won division three straight years to touchdown to interception get caught by your coach. You know what he ran off after that. Nine touchdowns two interceptions player of the week. One of those. And that's not a god fear you gotta add that to what he already was. Am I saying that this is Tom Brady peak power hell no, and I'm saying even a Tom Brady one notch down from his greatness is still not higher than ninety percent of all the quarterbacks out there. Yes. That's why this leads Davante. Adams mouth if this was just a no-name cornerback this. Was A, no fear quarterback or a rub quarterback. Nathan. Peterman you have nothing to say but the only reason he's taking a shot because he knows this is shut up and he may have to come back and regret this coming up at the top of our Dalton is into huddle. Now in Dallas we'll tell you if we're confident this cowboys can win NFC East but first. News in La, my clippers are reportedly hiring tie. Lewis. Their next head coach would tell you if we like them. We'll. Speak. Speak for yourself. Presented by Hyundai got some breaking news that Marcellus is excited about right here in La, reports say that the clippers are hiring Tai Lue to be their next head coach. He was he was an assistant under doc rivers who was let go by the team in September, led the cast title was Lebron Back in two thousand, sixteen Chauncey billips also expected to be lose top assistant. So Marcellus I know you get. He brought her during the commercial break but the you like Tai Lue is the next head coach with Love it love it. Yes. All four. You know why? Why there's some parallels that I really need a highlight you kind of sped through them and I need a slow you day big rose lower town too long on this because my enthusiasm will take over. Tie Lou. Won a championship where Cleveland Absolutely Cleveland and they to championship before Tai Lue Helped Him. Win. That champs -olutely, not never in history have the Los Angeles Clippers ever won a championship though Tai Lue I liked that the fact that you don't give me. Nothing. I found out that. The broad and you know who else is deemed now a great coach in Eric's bolster had the Bron-. For four years and won two titles with the BRA. But we know that that's a great situation Pat Riley and Eric's pollster. So now you get todd Lou him same Lebron they go to three straight fine. And they win one of them and I mean that one final that they wanted was unbelievable impossible comeback seventy when warriors team. So he's seeing the fire and been able to walk through it but then you look up and the next year he starts slow owing six fire and their his reputation goes and turns he really good coach or not but I always want to keep that cop of Eric's bolster right there and the fact that he was there in Cleveland when they finally got over to those are the same circumstances we're facing right now you gotta top player maybe the best player in the game two way players certainly. Go. and. Is. This man you hate me because behind site is twenty twenty. Oh, excuse me I had lasix twenty, five I have Eagle Vision. Now only cannot see what you can't see what I can look back as clear as you can look back at the cops, this is the perfect guy for this situation ball does not make you. Look here is why I am a skeptic of this higher I don't do it. We have no reason to like it. We have no reason to light coach. Great. Think about this you let me let's start there. Let's start there with the championship coach. There is Lebron James Effect, which we know wherever Lebron goes his team wins, which means it has nothing to do. They do doing what level of win is up for debate they went. Well. Whatever level of when is? Lebron goes to the cavs with Mike Brown early on in his career. Mike Brown's winning percentage might ground winning percentage with the Bron James Sixty six percent Mike Brown outside of Lebron James Forty nine percent okay. You Talk About X. Pollster who we now deem is a great coach I'm glad you brought that up prior to the season Erik. SPOELSTRA had five seasons without Lebron James After Lebron left one series win the four seasons with Lebron James Before that fourteen playoff series wins before Lebron James got to Miami's spoelstra was still there hadn't been to the playoffs in two years. So yes, we now acclaim they're exposed to as a great coach but without Lebron James Eric's brochure one playoff win in five years. Okay. Let's. Hope this. Season you history. There's. Great counterstroke four playoff series wins guest sixty years without. Power does now let's talk to you, Lou. Tight, Lou. Yes. He won that chip in two thousand sixteen with the brand but here's my question. Marcellus. If I re and Kayla don't get hurt and fifteen tied lose probably never had coach David Platt got fired in the middle of two thousand sixteen and they were thirty and eleven. Takes over and they go twenty, seven and fourteen. So, really tie Lou had a worse record than David Platt don't do that. But then. You are not because here's why not at the K love and Kyrie don't get hurt. We literally have the evidence to say they would have won when Kyrie and K love were hurt the next year they did win. Yeah. But the standards are of Sir when it comes to tire in turns of the next two years after that fifty plus wins and then Oh and six you gotta go gotTa go if the standard is winning or not the no coach is really going to be held up to that standard succeed but if it's just to change the culture. And this team is built to win right now, tie lose been in a position before with the gun to his head to win right there and he did it. So I think that's the only guy here. Here's my issue I'm a skeptic of Marcellus coaches who have optimal success when they have been groped don't for example and I Phil Jackson no no because Phil Jackson he'll go yes but phil, Jackson had a goat before we knew he was I don't remember Phil Jackson when Kobe early on and Kobe's career now but let me tell you don't to Jordan. Jordan started winning titles when Phil Jackson arrived. What I'm saying like Lebron James had won titles before Tyler. Got There. Okay. That's kind of making. My here's a question I have for you because now more of the conversation than a debate do not have the fear of was he actually a good coach or to make a good coach I'm thinking football parallel Mike McCarthy Mike McCarthy want a super bowl with Aaron? Rodgers we know that but without Aaron Rodgers even. Dallas. Mike McCarthy hasn't looked like the guy when Aaron Rodgers was hurt even in Green Bay Mike McCarthy didn't look like the guy. So maybe Aaron Rodgers made Mike, McCarthy that's my question with maybe Lebron may lose entertained that thought always get down a slippery slope and are reverse because I start digging Phil Jackson how many did you win without the grapes? Bill I mean you want without Brady like I just don't go down there because I could never have an answer that suffices would you wouldn't you say though and this is off topic but I think there's actually an interesting. Wouldn't you say that Phil Jackson, made the greats. The greats as opposed to Lebron James is making the coaches. Certainly a conversation that I entertain, and then I pushed back on that same conversation because I look at the field. Now, where you talk about a Jeff Van Gundy in that situation, he's returning it looks like to back to Houston where he was fired from Houston. So in terms of options I don't know where you can go outside of Tyler. Who is least been in this situation before s succeeded with a top player. Bringing in right now, our guys think rick the bucur. So Slick Rick would name is. Tai Lue as their head coach. I do like it largely because Jerry West likes it and he is an advisor to the clippers and while his draft, a record isn't exactly pristine his ability to to tag the the appropriate management and coaching choices is keep in mind. He played this exact same role with the Golden State warriors and advise them Bob Meyer should be the GM and Steve Kerr should be the head coach. He had a big part in seeing that happen, and we know how that turned out. He also Tab David Griffin at one point, and while it wasn't for the Cleveland Cavaliers, he wanted him very much in Memphis and we've seen what David Griffin did. Happen to preside over that championship in Cleveland as well as the GM. So. What I appreciate about this is as you mentioned, Marcellus Jeff angrily was in the mix and that was the guy that Steve Balmer was looking at and he gave them to his basketball people he gave into the guy who has done this and that's what I like about it. We're ultimately, we don't know because there is the question Tai Lue was Right There next to doc rivers when we had the meltdown this year so. Why didn't he influence things this time around that was the question in Steve Bombers Mind, and that's why I believe it took so long for them to come to this decision. But ultimately, as you also noted, Marcellus, it's a matter of what your options are and you've got to be able to convince. Kawhi Leonard who already has a ring and Paul George that this is a guy that can show them how to get there and among all the guys in the field. Break Popovich business moving and rejoining with Kawai La Bill Jackson's not coming out of retirement tie lose the one candidate out there. Who says, I, have a ring and I know how to get there now slip and that at least gives him that cash in the locker room with. I'm going to ask do those sorts of think for yourself Jerry Wesleyan up here we pay Jerry West to talk. So I don't want your primary argument to me I like it because Jerry West likes that useless gotta tell me if outside of Jerry West stamp of approval because we've seen other coaches, we've seen players coaches stamps over approval that are underqualified cough. Peyton. Manning Adam Gates I want to hear you tell me slick why Tyler was the guy for the job because I don't know if tyler was good outside Lebron James Right. Look but don't take away the fact that he was able to manage. Lebron James he was able to convince Lebron James that this is the way we need to do things that had to be a mutual respect thing and he was able to earn that. So if he could earn that with Lebron, I mean it wasn't that long ago that we were talking about Leonard being the new Lebron James that he was the best player in the League you still have to be able to manage that and manage the authority with a guy who let's face it has more power than you do Lebron. James was the most powerful entity in Cleveland. Leonard is the most powerful entity with the clippers. So Tai, lue as demonstrated that he knows how to enjoying his superstar and make things work he. He got the stamp of approval not just from Jerry West. He got it from Lebron James Ultimately. We'll see if this works I feel as if you can't just stop with the coach that wasn't the only problem you're going to have to do some reparations with the roster as well. You're going to have to make some changes, but here's the most powerful thing. Doc Rivers has a history now of blowing free one leads. Eireann little can walk in and go you know what I know how to come back from three one suspect and that is our full thing to be able to say walking into that locker. Yeah. It's interesting a look at the civil war that occurred on the clippers roster. Everyone's heard about the personality differences and the different treatment between the old guard. We're Lu- will and trays and those guys, and then Kawai PG come in and just get the red carpet treatment and how doc rivers didn't manage that situation. Perfectly. Well, think about how Lebron came back to Cleveland, and then he was wit Kyri and then that situation whatever you want to say about it. It was manage well enough to win a championship and to go onto to fifty plus win seasons, and we see how Cari can be ornery can be a little difficult as well as abroad at ties could be difficult, but they worked together well under tyler. So that is a respect, but I don't want Acho to be allowed to kind of change the burden of proof. In this situation, we have never seen Tyler Luke coach a team as the head coach without Lebron. James. But then you ask and you challenge people to show how he's a great coach without abroad days. It's impossible. That's happening a lot in our society if you guys catch the flip. The burden of proof was on you as the accuser to say, Hey, guess what this happened, but we flip that now with the one who's being accused that they got a show that I have done nothing and you're out there right now asked the lewd approved everybody. Out Lebron James. has never been allowed to. That's a little message from y'all from society I was I will say this I've not that I don't think Chi loo was the guy for the job I'm just not sure that he is because I have nothing to judge off of what I know is to me what stuck out most about tyler was the story down three one against Golden State in the Oracle he leaves the money in the top of the. Locker Room says, we will come back and we will get this that means they would have to go win game five knowing that they would come back to take game six or rather go win game sticks knowing they have to come back to take game seven what they said though it's actually got that from Doc rivers. So we will once again see the understudy can outdo the teacher coming up. My man widely says, big band took a shot at ABC. Do that That's coming up when he called his receivers selfless. I'll tell you why my Marcellus is. Wrong. Will next week for yourself then by. Back to speak for yourself about being rothlisburger who steelers are perfect for no star Pittsburgh is coming off a breakout four-test outperformance from Rookie Chase Klay Pu yesterday big instead he was amazed that usually Smith, Schuster didn't show any jealousy which appeared to be throwing some shade at his former receiver Antonio Brown this. He truly was was happy for chase. He was happy that we won the game Pity have huge stats dude you know but we won the game that's all that matters and so I just I think he for a number one receiver to feel that way to lock room I i. just I told my wife about I told my closest friends about it like that just made me really proud and made me happy that we have selfless guys in the team that are more about the win than they are trying to get their their stats. So I just can't say enough about Judy what that matter We oughta world. So I have been been taking a shot at Antonio Brown here Nah brought big band aid taken shot I think about this though Marcellus Big Ben's not taking a shot at it a b but also let's get real. Let's get to the real focused on the question. Of course, you ain't got an ego because he hasn't yet proven. He's a number one receiver like that's the real issue here. That Big Ben is saying man you know we got a bunch of selfless guys. Nobody's earned the right to be selfish and be if that's the person he was taking a shot at a had earned that right remember everybody's getting. Let Tom Brady off the hook for cutting his teammates out because he's Tom Brady he's A be was the only receiver to have those five consecutive twelve hundred plus yard seasons in a six season stretch. Marcellus, what did the great philosopher Meek Mill say? A great relaxed for Meek Mill. The money turn me to a monster. The money term noodles in Pasta. The money turned API into a monster. Big. Bad Juju if he ever break that Bait, probably going to turn them into a monster too. Ben Wasn't taking a shot at a be. He was simply complementing the humility of his receivers, but do you coming off a five hundred dollars season? You have to be humble James Washington the other receiver. He's a third year player. The Johnson I believe is his name as another second-year player Ain't nobody on that team earned a right to be cocky choosy sixty fifth highest paid receiver in the NFL. Of course, everybody is humble right now big band. It's not a shot is my first statement okay. My second statement is ain't nobody earned the right to be cocky and my last statement just listened to the great philosophers of our time. Like Meek Mill, we'll tell you the money going to turn you into a monster ain't nobody in receiving core paid like that right now. Loved. That take just put that on ice. Oh I don't even WanNa follow it because if you look like we over here debating but I got a different take. Okay. Taking the Shasta I'll keep taking this shot ab and I hate these type of people the type of people say, no we good and you move on move on and they move onto success but really all they're doing is holding their breath for. A moment where they could say, Oh, I, forgot about Shula Higher and you somebody else as the unintended he is using Juju Smith and him being a tier to receive the best and using that to indirectly talk to Ab. Okay. Why would you do that? I wonder why would big Ben to promote a culture where it's not about individual greatness and stats and just say, Hey, guys as we win I'll figured it out. Because this is the same Big Ben who signed a two year extension worth sixty, eight, million dollars. His team has not been to the playoffs in the last couple years maybe he's to save big Ben's making so much money. But realized that Oh, my team just made it to the playoffs four times in the last eight years. Oh, maybe it's the same big bins ruins a lot of heat eight on me right now but you know what? I want to create this culture while Pat People Wanna hear for doing less because that's what we're winning. But I dive into something deeper than just we're winning. How are we winning? So if I'm looking at you big Ben a hit you with a widely is about a great philosophy I've been waiting on wildly Azam Ladies and gentlemen I've been waiting all we gonNa why this for Awhile Ism and you need to learn this big Ben Selfish. and. Selfless Have one thing in common. Self. Don't you dare try to go out there and like you for the whole. Would minimize the individual you a damn live. What is happening is big beat has been minimized and this success, and now you WANNA act like it's all about the aggregate situations like this always makes me scratch my head especially when you use junior who's trying to climb up the mountain for somebody who was at the top of the mountain. Shot set man Antonio Brown are we got a Game Fox in the film analyst? Gregg Genie's right. Now Grit is big band taking a shot at Aby. I like both takes. But I gotta go. I'll show right here. Okay. I'm going Joe for several reasons and in here it is. been obviously has been exposed to a guy who has been. The number one guy paid he put a ridiculous amount of numbers and Antonio Brown. Consecutive Years Juju to John's point. He has not done that the only thousand yard season that he's put up alongside. Oh. Brown and then you look at him now he hasn't really asserted himself as just the outright number one guy that teams have to focus on in eliminate in order to be successful against the Pittsburgh steelers. So to US shows point, there is no reason for him to be selfish or Self West for that matter in when you look at this team right now you look at their receiving core they'd been it done by committee all year long. That's how they're going to win because there is not that one guy that can say. Give, me the ball or we won't win when Antonio Brown was locker room. That was the case if he didn't eat, they didn't really perform well. So when you look at Juju in all great now played this position, I, know how it works is great when everybody's eating and you've been involved but let you start sitting on the sideline or coming out of that game and sitting in that locker room having not been a part of a consecutive game or three consecutive games or four consecutive games that smile start to go from here You you almost have to force US Marla right now, he has no reason to do that because he knows next week this upcoming week I'll be back in part of the game plan. But this week it wasn't my week I'm cool with that right now. But moving forward next week don't be retired. By receivers. That's real when I grew up man again my Nigerian Household Greg marseils already knows this. There's something called tiger. Balm it's kind of icy hot. There's a little bit different Tiger Balm you put it on a bump Abreu AK- pain and it would cure it, and then you hear sometimes Benadryl. Is kind of a fixed saw advil is a fix. To the NFL Greg I learned this winning cures Zoll and right now winning what the steelers are doing. So everything is all smiles sunshine rainbows because they are winning but let cat stop winning is GonNa be an issue also remember all the steelers receivers they're on their rookie contract. Here's what that means less money less pressure more money more pressure assume somebody's receivers get paid out, and now they realize man I'm making fifteen million a year I need to put up fifteen million dollars worth of production if I'm not I have an issue, right? Now, Juju making one point, six, five, I think like I'm not count another man's targets. But what I am doing this I'm going to counter stats and see if they match the pockets he getting paid that much. He ain't got a reason a trip it will come. The question is can big Ben Cash in on another super bowl ring before he's receivers start to cash in and he's attitude start to chain we all want to win I, get it but there's different pressures in different routes you take to win. So Big Ben is is interesting. The figure right now, not the proper plaintiff for this case but there their culture used to be a ball out pressure. They had individual stars lady out bill was getting his numbers and they were winning. You gotta be getting his numbers and they will win and they rob Burger would get his numbers and they will win and then all of sudden you look at a situation now where when Ben Rothlisberger was. Out in a team was having some good success, not grape but looking without being he looked around water minute we could change culture right now and it doesn't have to be so much about the individuals we all black when we liked those results, we want what happens when you're not winning. The first thing that goes is, would you doing contribute to this losing? I am trying to show foresight because the steelers will. Lose a couple of games whenever that happens. You're going to see this. All of a sudden have divide is funny that Ben Rothlisberger saying but. He threw the ball five point, nine yards per pass the line of scrimmage. Last week that was the second lowest in NFL. Rothlisberger is balling to a degree in a run efficient offense. You're talking about a guy that has ten touchdowns at one interceptors. How can you could play? Well Jusoh is sitting here quietly at taking his pain even though he probably is complaining, 'cause the Johnson is a guy who has more pass attempts because chase clay has more yards and a higher passer rating when bent throws to him so Now has a locked room that is just following lock instead to what he wants but the problem is you're going to be individual bowlers that same kind of hunger you saw from. And others that's what's going to drive to alternate success. Now, just marginal success that he's trying to get right now. I hear both of you guys and I agree I think right now anytime you have a guy who like in a be or lady on bill who warranted that type of. Focus in that type of attention because of their level of play, it's going to create some tension regardless how much guys talk about? Yeah. I'm for the success of this individual that in the team overarching that yet guys want to have their individual success and one thing about quarterbacks they don't like to be over. In what was happening in Pittsburgh with a was been kind of getting overlooked because of the performance that Ab was getting, and so when you're a quarterback and you have this receiving core, that is like none of them are really superstars that leaves all the attention to me. So as long as I continue to spread the ball around and can we continue to win which cures everything everything is gravy baby get it all covered because I'm in charge Is Crazy. Man Being wants people to be happy if you're not eating and if I were on Tampa yeah cause you ain't Cook it enough. That's why eight right here from been rough roughest Burger as slick with this game. This is exactly why AB was bad. Big Been. Like, look you meet a ball, one, hundred, Sixty, eight times and targets how You doing one hundred, sixty, six times to Juju when we ate the same and then you over there, petting Juju and giving him all the praise and meanwhile you call me out. A. To a defensive tackle one time and got the nerve to go on the radio and called me out why you try to build us the same. It's just as weird cultured as being created. Right there were being as though top. So where he wanted it the way he got it right now coming up, we're not done with the steelers. No, we not one of them wants to punish already Baker Mayfield tell you if we have a problem with that mix. Welcome back to speak for yourself. Let's talk about Baker Mayfield huge up on Sunday against his AFC north rival the steelers but there's a problem Baker's been limited in practice with the RIB injury. He suffered last week. The browns quarterback says he's confident. He'll play the steelers defensive tackle. Cam. Hayward will definitely be taken advantage of Baker Mayfield's injury take a list. I'm not a doctor. I'm not going to say very and tell you that I know How bruised up is the day I'm just trying to inflict. Good punishment. I, think we. As as a d line I mean as a defense you WanNa make sure the quarterback feels you'd want to make sure. He's thinking about the Russ. Good Punishment Greg is back with us. I can't wait for this one because we got one offensive guy and to. Guys having this conversation Marcellus you of person do you have a problem with players attacking opponents injury? No problem at all. That is the mindset as soon as you cross those white lives. Is Killer be killed, and if you if you chose to walk across those lines, you are fair game I, only eat what I kill. So a killer be killed and you going back I don't care if you come in through here, hurt injured whatever may be is kind of like a boxing mindset where you hear Ding Ding Oh, he and the ring about the punch Putt Putt Oh, I'll see blurt. Harder, that's the mindset you gotTa have when you play the game of football I want to hear that hurt. So right here. Can you please take a man put me on the ground. You got a football one hand the ain't a hallmark card in other words I. Don't give a damn about you between these white lines. I'm not GONNA do anything illegal but between the rules between the lies I am bringing you hale that's real marcellus. I'm not going to quote a philosopher this time. I'm just going to quote little Wayne. He said I told the judge I couldn't budge. Him or me that's what it comes down to on a field on the football field is like look it's either him or meet somebody got to get it I. Don't have a problem attacking opponents injuries I have a problem trying to create new injuries outside up the white lines but I don't have a problem, a attacking and existing injury I've heard of said before, and this is actually incredibly brilliant i. Forget, who said it that why does the NFL out injury reports if you're going into battle and I know that Marcellus is limited or injured and I know exactly where and exactly how I'm going to attack that. So putting out injury report is actually disadvantage if you were going to war some sort of combat of some sort, you wouldn't be like, yeah, you know we're actually deficient here with this troops. Actually. Our websites down our cybersecurity is actually down right now like do not giving the opponent and advantage but in the national football league, we do that some reason my issue lies with things that happen outside of the lines. But inside the lions aid I came budge because they see the him or his me. I agree with both of those takes in and watch on s always been one of my reasons that I've hated the injury report as an offensive guy. I'm already at a disadvantage because you're mindsets view defensive line linebacker level both of you is to inflict good punishment. Regardless if I'm injured regardless of you know of any injury or if I'm healthy, that's your best your approach to the game. So if me telling the reporters Oh, you know what or my team having to. Release this information you know what Greg? Jennings this week is dealing with a wrist injury. You know what the defensive back is going to do. He's going to try to see if that rhys really hurts and why not because it's fair game when you put the uniform on like you say, Marcellus you put the hellbent on you step in here I don't care what's ailing you. You feel like you good enough to give me the business. So I'm GonNa give it to you. So let me ask you this though Bro, no is there ever come a point like if you know dude is coming off a concussion or come a point where you still like banging is our line of deliniation where you like you know what you know what? That's a little too focused on look if you gotTa cuss you and I'm like you ain't GonNa get no smarter after you play me. Is Coming. I'm not. You can't head slap band outlaw that. But Trust me when helmet-to-helmet was legal in my days what this Ryedale is upside back right there. I had to do it. Look what let me just clarify for you guys. You know why they let out injury report for gamblers done and Y'all like the dope or they need to know. That that's only read a while. But, this is what I would do talk about the steelers in their defense league high five sacks per game. They don't need any extra incentive to go out to against Cleveland and they don't need the extra talent. They got it up front already but you know I would call every blitz in the book from hello and Our Name Him because his ribs it hurt name of barbecue sauce barbecue sauce. Sauce every single play we are pepper in up them ribs and I'm sorry football's a very brutal sport. That's why a nice guy like me, who's really software real life who will never have a fight relief I don't care what happens to me people like me sometimes, diplomat shoes going to be why they hate you get to clippers. All right. Have a nice day. Body, but there's a switch. And if I hit And had that uniform all all your going to get it because I know the only way I'm GonNa get mine is go through you. Well and I'll add to that and while you said, there's a little earlier anytime you're in battle or you're competing and you feel or you get you hear that telltale sign of emotion visually where somebody's shows you you got him or I'll take it to this as a defensive guy. If you hear offensive Lineman or you use you guys see a guy come up to you a man you've been killing them all year and your mind that transcribes to yeah, he scared I got him. You telling you guys Oh. Yeah. He Week because he just told you. He was being too nice to where you obviously are doing something to make him feel like he congratulate you or he can applaud your level of play but you get the guy that comes up to you i. don't Care What you've done. I'm GonNa give you that work isn't different mindset. It's a different approach. So anytime, you know a guy is injury like you said in a boxing match, you see blood or you hear. You like your antennas go up Oh what's going on? Okay. I'll see that I see that I'm turn out the next plane because offaire game this is football is not pretty packed. We still hitting is still physical. That's what it is, and like you said, they don't need any other incentives they don't get to. Baker at some point in that game they've got some almost every quarterback they play. In football objective is very simple exposed mental weakness and expose physical weakness is really ought to same I'm trying to expose either one that I can remember we've played the Seahawks and Kam Chancellor came out on a field and Greg Danas I'm sure you remember Cam all same two million except Cam comes jogging out on the field and CAM is my size but bigger. And I played linebacker about sixty to thirty five and the seahawks and you know they came out with Neon cleats on and the US and he comes up to me Jeremy Maximalist on our team. He said Hey macklin plan because macklin had been hurt prior. I'll say, yeah. I. Think he played me say tell them not to come across the middle I was like I was like Oh snazzy. Really. Give Macklin a heads up Greg because like Jack Tam was just looking out like that's the. Game Macklin one across the middle and as we know it did not end well. That's the goal of football is trying to inflict punishment I'm? Not. GonNa go out of my way to hurt somebody outside of the whistle outside the lines. But inside them lines, it's a doggy dog world. We're not out there to look out for you. You wear those paths not to be cute. You pass for protection 'cause that's what I'm trying to hurt you and that's why we put the uniform on. We put it on because we know there's hail to hey as soon as we crossed those lies to two quick was real quick i. I look at the office alignment on injury report and I was like Oh, knee He'll be hobbling and then you semi pre-game you know you're looking at. A look normal when. You. Take and One you guys always talk about the emotions of the game I'm GonNa give you the greatest emotional competitor can have. That is not love and is hate it's apathy I. Give it to you in this example Walter Jones. Former Hall Hall of fame and former office tackle best player out a win guess I couldn't do jackets do like a four six they said that the pro day is saying. He had apathy. He wants say anything no matter what you said no matter what you did you do something that was borderline on on blurring the lies trying to sneak them wanted to he just looked at you like Jason Friday. The thirteenth I'm telling you all the competitors out there trust me don't be all hyped up and don't be all like soak it. Just be a guy is showing that even Q. That's Kinda scary as well. Coming up in our big story Andy Dalton has qb one in Dallas. Now tell you for competent and his cowboys will win the NFC. For Yourself. Want to speak for yourself presented by on Day Marcellus while here manual hot dog. Vote. Colors right there. This handed down this big story randy don't leading the cowboys after Dak Prescott Ankle injury put him out for the year Michael Gallup said, Dalton, came into huddle Sunday. He told the team Co op came here to win. So let's do it. Dalton went on helpfully them to a win over the giants. Cowboys are currently two and three and are in first place in the NFC East tour you confident and Dalton's cowboys winning. NFC. Lease to start my first block I'm going to say, yes, I am cowboys fans for whatever reason they think I hate him because I like the eagles no two aren't mutually exclusive. Eagles and you can the cowboys, her commentary kind of support. Of the truth, and the truth is this I think the cowboys are going to be a better football team with Andy. Dalton. At the hill. Then with that Prescott at the I think that's the truth and I based that not on on feelings I based on the fact that Andy Dalton is a competent and capable quarterback we call him winless playoff andy shirt but andy went to the playoffs five consecutive times in the hardest division. In football, Andy don't comes into the NFL at the time heart is in football because the steelers. Are Coming off a super bowl and the ravens are winning the Super Bowl as soon as he gets into the League and he don't has more back to back ten win seasons in that. Prescott had Andy don't actually has more touchdowns in a season. Dacca's had let's not like Andy Dalton is not capable. So as I think about Marcellus one Andy Dalton is capable in Andy, Dalton has competent. I'm not trying to build the next fifteen years around Andy Dalton but am I comfortable building the next fifteen weeks around him absolutely number two. Because of Andy Dalton now the team is forced to adjust the biggest thing for me cowboys fans after Dak Prescott those pick six and y'all go down fourteen to three to the New York giants I'm thinking is Dallas Cowboys Dak Prescott cooking time down fourteen to three hit got to cook. But what happens the cowboys did the most impressive thing they did all season they take a methodical six-minute fifty nine second fourteen play drive in which Ezekiel Elliott holds the ball carried the ball ten times and that Prescott only those about four times leads to a touchdown giants now, what fourteen to Ten next possession on offense does cowboy sat forced fumble scoop and score. Why? Because the defense was rested I'll say this again, Marcellus football is a team game Andy Dalton will promote team with the cowboys. It's not Andy Dalton's contract here and he does not making thirty one million dollars like Dak Prescott you don't need to force feed passing the ball with Andy Dalton. The cowboys will become a better team because the summation of their portwood elevate I am confident that Andy don't cowboys Goanese confident the cowboys will win east but I heard Andy Dalton's name a little too much to comrades. Does. Not About Andy. It's about Ezekiel Elliott who's finally going to be in the position where he should be now only balancing this offense out but putting the pressure on seat to have to lead this offense to where it needs to go. Let's talk about this team right now because we know they're not playing complementary football passing game was insane. This was the first rank. All right now thirty scoring offense however passing office I, rushing off his nineteenth balanced even within that unit does not even talk about the defense where their last and scoring defense and that's why even though Dak Prescott with putting up insane numbers, they find themselves losing more. Games than winning. So what's about Zeke Mike? McCarthy's not stupid. My Card is I'm GonNa put this on Zeke and the cowboys twenty two and eight was gets twenty five touches or more. Okay. That's a winning formula. Basically, he hasn't gotten that yet twenty two twice, but then had fallen behind you got to play catchup Dak Prescott. So when you talk about them right now going out there playing well, let's look at the deficit ball. We know offensively where we're going to do and manage this game and we're not going to put this on your deck. We're not asking you to be Deck Zeke. We're asking you to be Zeke now let's. Defensive Defense is horrible except if you really look at last week starting to see some signs of promise and hope three hundred dollars total office given up you know what? The League averages three, Sixty, seven. Okay. Little something. Golf claps you went from an F. D.. Might D. my diet that matters you got still doing some look four point, eight yards per play excellent averages five point seven, six yard for tip very good average seven point four and they went to the bliss the last two weeks they've gone to the blitz to the point where there a top teen top ten team in terms of pressure on the quarterback. So what's happening here is what happened in Kansas City not team success defensively remember how bad the defense was not compliment metric mahomes that offense and their spans comes in and even then it's still. Slow in the last seven weeks of the year that led the NFL scoring defense. I think we're having that formula be applied right now to the Dallas cowboys. Now that is bold and that is a little more gutsy than I'm going to go. Now let me talk about my fears because again I'm a realist I I I said I'm confident why the cowboys can do it. Here's my fears for the Dallas Cowboys I know the Eagles Carson Wentz can do it I what come back from terrible deficits like they have I think Andy Dalton in the cowboys can. If you were telling me, Marcellus, what team would I rather coach cowboys by far more talented roster yet I think they have the best receiving core in the league I think they have one of the top three running backs in the national football. The cowboys are by far more talented plus they have either schedule. I think they have the second easiest remaining schedule in the national. Football League here is my fear. I'm not convinced that Mike McCarthy can do it. I'm not convinced it Mike McCarthy, and the collection of the cowboys can make this happen what I know. Is that the eagles who started off four and six last year but finished on a five and one three ended up nine and seven made the playoffs two years ago twenty nineteen started off three and four finished nine and seven. The last four games they went four. No I know Marcellus that the eagles can I think that the cowboys can but because of how easy cowboy scheduled is because of how competent I think Andy Dalton is and because of the offensive weapons at the cowboys have if the cowboys don't make the playoffs with Andy Dalton, everybody getting A. Little. Everybody gotta get fired. Much talent. Well, you remember who Mike McCarthy is he's a guy who inherited four and twelve months and Green Bay Tournament to eight eight the next year tournament to the NFC championship game appearance the year after that. So if you respect Mike McCarthy enough to make them your head coach, you got to respect his process and maybe it takes time but eight nate record for the cowboys this year what win this division, 'cause the Philadelphia Eagles, stop it, and like you said, a second easiest schedule that's going to really help clear the lane for the. Cowboys war porn the you said, and he does not a contract. Here he is. Is like one year contract and does on the Teddy Bridgewater planned I'm a ball here and I'm GonNa go somewhere else I don't care if that's in short stint, but we know now is going to be long stint because of Prescott Surgery I look at the cowboys simply as a team that has realized and been forced to realize what they need to do and do best run the football it helps the defense like you said time of possession like we know is Complementary football. But it's amazing how this happens in life and it happens in sports where you're always searching for something always looking for something and then everything you want is everything you're already had you had Ezekiel Elliott there and you knew the numbers in terms of giving him his proper touches for whatever reason they weren't but I think Ezekiel and his mental makeup realizing that all the pressure is on hill and he is the workhorse and he is the best player that they have offensively, he has to make it work. Here's how I look at it. Because sometimes during this show, we do get into the nuances say time of possession why do you keep going out this meaningless debt because it matters the cowboys for the first time all season possess the ball longer than their opponents or at least possessive longer than they ever had all season against the giants not longer than the giants twenty seven minutes there's a reason. The cowboys won that game I also think about it like this Guy Andy, Dalton had a game winning drive that Prescott only has one game winning drive since the start of two thousand. Teen Andy. Dalton. Did what we seem that Prescott do once in his one attempt at being able to do it the game of football I think was what we say twenty four percent of games decided by one possession or less. What we saw Andy Dalton do getting thrust into the game means something and here's what I don't think fans understand because people were hypercritical of. Andy Dalton and to call them out during the season. Marcellus. If you'RE A to think you ever work high pay us a number one. But if you're number two on the depth chart, you're not taking the same amount of wraps. Starters are getting eight Reps. the number twos are getting four. What's that mean? Pro People at home watching Andy Dalton was getting probably I don't. Know Thirty two reps in practice compared to that Prescott Ninety six to go in there and still be able to win the game game winning drive tied thirty, four, thirty, four, thirty, one, thirty one and go up and win by three that means a ton especially given the lack of work that he got during the and I've been to before you remember I'll draft the. Buffalo Bruce Smith I've been through has to stop playing I hit the ground running. But in that respect I love that point because it makes you understand how pieces dependent independent entered opinion we've talked about before where you know the playbook backwards but you don't know the chemistry you don't know the unspoken language of your teammates and that matter so much especially at the quarterback position. I I look at my son right now and I'm like I if I had a choice, I would say all right play quarterback Vinny Position Office align also somehow some way they play forever they will get hurt as much I don't know what it is but maybe they're the biggest on the field but quarterbacks but. Think about what it entails to be a quarterback. I know how I learned to play book. I learned to play look like what does the defensive and have to do then one of the tackle have to do a lot better to do okay he wants Mexico and what are the secondary do? quarterbacks have to know what they have to do everyone else office. And the defense as in the skies. In real action coverage as such a cerebral position and I. think that lends itself well to Andy Dalton who's been in positions before I leverage and has succeeded. It's time to make our picks for this week free to play Super Six contest Terry Bradshaw putting a million dollars up. For grabs, the Sunday all you have to do is correctly predict the outcome of six NFL gangs bears panthers is one of the match ups. This week are choke me a winner Bahaman Minute give me a bears over the panthers twenty seven to twenty. Four. NOPE steeler. Bears twenty-seven Panthers Twenty Two Sure. You get to pick him before kick-off Sunday for your chance to be a millionaire if we're top stories, scores more, go to foxsports APP coming up, they bails out of the big apple could be headed. AKC. But we'll tell you if it would be a mistake for the chiefs to sign them that speak for yourself. Tonight is the pivotal game for the NFL CS at the dodgers would even the series against Ronaldo tenure and the braves it all starts at seven thirty eastern four thirty. Pacific. Simulcast at best one I called yesterday when I said dodgers get it done. As, dominated degrade fifteen to three. Will Run the I couldn't tonight, all eyes will be on Clayton Kershaw. WHO's coming off another back injury looks exercises, playoff demons and he'll get the series tied. Let's move to and lady on Bell. Star running back was released the chiefs this week and is now a free agent reports say that the chiefs are high on the list for his next. Here's at least by the jets earlier this week now may sign with the teeth per reports. Bell even started following Patrick Mahomes on twitter that's one reporting has come through the. Home yesterday doing even more speculation. Currently eleventh in the League in rushing led by rookie running back Clyde Edwards the layer. So Marcellus is it a mistake for the chiefs to sign Labor on bell not at all because you're going to get the best you're GONNA get some most on a Bill is easy to make him fall in line. You know how? Popping his tape of scared straight you most scarce rate is you ever seen them before my time. Damn. Scarce. Straight is something that they used to show US little kids at risk kids maybe. They will show you some real jail where. DEF. INMATES, up nine. Started all that you know what this tapes go half. On devereaux is going to have the SHAAM McCoy owners to a remember me. I was a great running back came the KC and you see the Super Bowl, did you see planet? Oh, you did. You know why? Because you got to perform if you're going to be here not only you have to stay in line but before we're talking about shady. McCoy who went there? What do you got one snap into place lower thirteen regular-season games over six hundred yards, five touchdowns. But when it mattered most, they didn't use them. If I'm leaving our bill noting of abundance of riches I know if I go there, I, get the glow everyone starts to say oldest shine is back complimentary back in that situation but. I also know I gotta bring it and he has to bring it more to even Lasalle, mcchord. So I don't use as turn I use that as motivation if I'm the chiefs few come here I, don't give a damn about your name I care about show gain Marcellus you remember what it maybe three or four years ago and there was that. Viral picture of dress and it was like, was it black or was it blew remember this weird that you and I can look at the same picture and see it differently I. Agree with all your points. But all your points are why don't think later on Belge assign with the cheese because the chiefs have a top ten running back into Clyde Edwards? Number ten in the League in rushing and he's number five in the league as far as running backs in receiving. If it's not broke, don't fix that I said this before if there can be addition by subtraction, then there can be subtraction by addition. Why would you Atalay on bell to a Pie? That's already perfectly fine. That's already perfectly fixed. I know what some may say you can never have too much talent and. You can't but you gonNA have too many personalities in the locker room. The chiefs already have Thai Req- personality Travis Kelsey personality had his own reality show. We. Already have the honey badger personality larger than life personalities, but the locker room meshes perfectly. Why in the world would you mess with that whenever you're making a business decision? And again, I'm going to brag about my degrees because you're always brag about Colombia. visit you have to do one pivotal thing, a cost benefit analysis. Yes. What will it cost you and what are the benefits you analyze that and that is what dictates the decision you make as I run this cost benefit analysis adding lay beyond bill what will it cost them? It will cost them potential chemistry within the locker room. What is the benefit? You already have a top ten running back so now I want to top ten running backs I just. Can't make a ton of sensitive big look. The reason I would do it is because one I normally get a fully motivated top ten running back if he's right but to there are enough carries the go around like you can go we have our workhorse and we grind them out. But that formula terms of him being better peaking when you need a most postseason doesn't make sense it sounds like you might wear them out when it doesn't matter to most. This team is built, for Super, bowl again for so we're bill four super bowl again, it's almost what we're talking about what Lebron and they'd be like we know Lebron master gas in the regular season ago Har- but why not right with someone else that Terry that low and if you're the chiefs, you want the low to be shared to a degree and you bring in this guy all the sudden he's trying to go out there fully motivated to get. His career back on track that to me is the ideal situation I don't want to play with the injury situation. I don't want anything to happen to us in terms of running game and it not be supported with more talents. His personality will not enter this room. Why can if it does his career is over? He can't go from Pittsburgh, sit out of you go to the jets mess up he was like fifty third rank of fifty four eligible rushers. and. Then go to Casey messed that situation and you can't talk about the situation or to system because it makes everyone look better. How can you mess this up? That's why I bring them in the issue with me is the chiefs don't need them what what I mean by that is you brought up Lesean McCoy that's a great example. Leshan McCoy was inactive in the Super Bowl no the biggest game of the cheese, their season biggest game of Andy Reed's life since his last super bowl when they played the Patriots when the Eagles you had Leshan McCoy. An. Active. So if I'm sitting there and I'm the cheese, if shady could be inactive, you have laid on bell you just don't need them. So I'm sitting here thinking about Libyan bill here's a guy who a month and a half ago tweeted that nothing was wrong with his hamstring when Adam gays sat him out during practice and said, we sat him out because of his hamstring he's GonNa take that to twitter. Then he's going to go on a game two weeks later and his hamstring wind up on. Are you have a guy who after this past Sunday? To twitter to once again, vet all these personalities that the teams have all these nicknames that the Chief Has Cheetah honey badger all this stuff and yet they don't no drama, and now you want to insert one of the most dramatic players. The NFL was seen in the last five to ten years a guy who. You know how hard it is to play one year in the League maybe on Bell said I'll just sit it out. This is a guy who chose to sit out a season because of disputes I just don't know if the chiefs need that because I think they can win the super bowl without it you could but then you increase the chance of risk in terms of. Turns of Hey, you got a great rookie running back. But how long do you have man bones? Do you have man ledger rookie how you're used to award at twelve fourteen fifteen gang season we didn't even dealt with the regular season in terms of that condition it included the playoffs. So you were in the league what happens on Tuesdays, it's our day off off but it's heyday. payday. Organizations still functions as normal. You ever go up to the facilities on Tuesday everybody people. You. Know who else is in their Gaza? They're working out guys that they're bringing in and bringing running backs even though you gotta start running back through what was balling all these. Nobody else can he do? You never know here's the thing if one of those guys that you saw on that random Tuesday was navy. Bail you like what is going on? Why are we talking about? We already know get sign him. He's ear at the mercy of the chiefs. He is there to do the right things. But maybe this move makes says in the ballot check way you know how you gotTa sometimes play traffic cop images make sure to other teams don't get them. On that list is also the Patriots own, that list is also the bills in terms of them trying to have some balance in their running game as well. You'd think the cheeses sitting there like we know who are AFC foes are even lost the raiders but they don't count. We're talking about top tier foes are they plan a little traffic cop? Trying. To make sure they don't get them. That's a good point. My my last point here is this is I think about because he got analyze all the decisions that could make you have a rookie inclined to layer running back who against your point he played about sixteen games last year because he was a Dallas, so I can make it to wildcard. He played sixteen or seventeen thousand south of the real point with. Edwards. Hilarious. Very simple. He's on pace went offense rookie of the year. There were CD lamp Arizona youngest player in NFL history to debut with one hundred thirty plus rushing yards only the fourth player in the last thirty years to have one, hundred, thirty plus rushing yards. Debut and the. Rookie of the year I don't know if you want to stifle the growth of Edwards a layer what he will do for the future of this lady on belt we know Marcellus is if anything is a quick fix is a stopgap is okay. Let's ball with him for a year or two, and then by then he's thirty as a running back. Anyway, he ain't no good to the NFL. Is it worth sacrificing your twenty two year old first round pig who's done something made historically great numbers. For this well, yeah, it is. You know why? Because you gotta use him for what you want and a sense of security what if alarm goes down like? Be On bill go oh, he gone. So here's the thing. Is Not winning office a rookie of the year see. Is Not. winning. Office. Job Joe boroughs not herber. Thought one, he plays quarterback and he plays quarterback. So pretty it's the rap on he is owned Fourtou I'll give. Currently on four is the start that he is not. Looking nice coming up. Conversation Raises All will tell you what the broad needs to do to be. I would MJ. Autumn, back to speak for yourself, let's move to NBA where the Brawn James. One is four NBA title with only ignited the conversation between him and Michael Jordan even further brought even posted on instagram yesterday that he was watching the last Das- documentary and was. Back at it ruined my homework team Jerry Dudley said on the podcast yesterday. The bronx quote just wants to be seeing I with MJ I. Needed do to be joy man as Lebron guy again and and when you learn and read books like the art of war you you understand you better know your enemies approach to know your best approach. The Jordan approach is very simple coming from Jordan's dance the broad won enough. So what does Lebron need to do to be seen AIEDA? I you have to win in postseason he'd be one more one more finals and. Finals Pe- and the Bron- will be seen as I see it as very simple. There is a pendulum there is a see-saw if you will, and right now Jordan is still carrying the majority of the weight by about five ten percent because of those six finals six finals, MVP's no game seven Lebron statistically regular season house Jordan beat and literally every single category show me to rings if we got the full screen, let's see it. Lebron has Jordan beat in every statistical category marcellus points Lebron has more of rebounds. The Brian has more assist. The brain has more of Lebron during the regular season, a better player. But what we talk about we talk about chips when we talk about greatest and right now Jordan still has lebron because he has more chips. If Lebron just gets five, he doesn't need to get six to be seen I. Five is Ida I for me six surpasses during because he's a pass them in a regular season. That's where I'm at I'm not there with you I'm going to say to be seen I'd Michael Jordan, you have to do more than just win and the winning will certainly close the gap but then their conversation, you hear look in the back of the barbershop they talk about clutch close like am I right? And then what did he did? He gave them more ammunition even in the finals when he passed the ball out and it you saw Danny Green who still he needs to stretch and warm up even in the fourth quarter but his legs. Warm Up. So date agree. And then what are they merely tur- to see a Brurn when asked? Perfect basketball player who cares make this shot and Jordan would've taken that shot and they want. Lebron take. So that's to how you have to be seeing is so owner court is some mission, the brownies the win more showed a he's clutch for Dole's people who are still pausing at that, but also remind them that my Laker here's our Jordan's wizard years and how did they know Jordan wizard years ago so far compared to the Lakers years with Bra the win that adds right there because no one counted. Jordan wizar- years when he had no competition as the go but you know any competition, what do we have to do start splitting hairs? On. I know you gotta pass those that was when there was no other goat in the conversation. Now, we got goats we bringing them wizard years back up off the court if you're Lebron James, who have to continue to do the right things in terms of messaging he's doing a lot with social justice and education has its own school excetera but you gotTa make sure you make the careful calculated steps and not missteps. There is a population out there that doesn't like Lebron James in that respect like they like Michael Jordan all he focused in on was playing basketball and all we knew him for basketball golfing gambling and party. Okay that works. And it's weird. Lebron's can sometimes find himself in harm's way in terms of criticism one off the court last one is the broad. You gotta get your cultural relevance of not to popularity is different. You mean, Dr Me on expound Jordan Somehow someway maybe we're just Nike. Maybe because he was I, he casts out there feeling like they better they put his shoes on still like it's I like M- Lebron's shoes I love Kobe's the best but then I put all the bras. They feel good. They look great and then I walk around the Kessler those liberals but I put up some. People will be killed. Twenty tools Oh. Those levers and I'm like, wait a minute. That impact people get additive breath because we have to go real quick I don't know if that's possible nowadays because of how saturated the market I give remember back in the late eighties even when you're talking about artists when you're talking about the Michael Jackson's of the world saturation was not as relevant it was not as prevalent. You can't go on instagram and see what everybody is doing all the time. So if you saw Michael Jordan, if you saw Michael Jackson's like Oh, my God that's step right now it's like Oh. Yeah. Lebron has Tuesday here at the white. Van. Even. Have Taco. Know if Lebron can match the cultural relevancy. So I think all he can do really is match the statistical relevancy I agree with that but let me push back until you. This everyone says that and more instances support that than not. But there are a few. Here's one of my household. Every time I want my wife works out she loves the Spin Spin, cavern, Nike Oh Nike Span Spin, and then one day she was like. LA-. Lululemon why? You always knock it out and Lula limit in the workout fitness were made their Mark Lebron gotta find a way to make his mark even big Nike his they're never going away. You GotTa make your mark and I don't see Lebron making this cultural relevance mark. The same way Jordan makes it better sweats him some Culebra. We've gotTA bring a Fox NBA analyst crystal saw be so Chris, what does the broad to do to be seen out I would. Michael. Jordan. Astro before I go. Let me saw you up. I liked outfit very sharp today very shocked today. The way you just so nonchalantly matter-of-fact. Lebron's been better in the regular season. What? You just put up total stats of put up averages. You can't put a total points brand way way four or five more years. Games Walton that? Jordan be in. Our lives he got us. He. Don't have steals Ito have points they'll come on but anyway, let me get to it. Here's the answer. The win the next two. Libra has to win the next championship win two. Eight three be yes. No the next to. Wow. Because here's here's the deals. All don't. Let me. Let me. Let me explain and I'm not. This is not to be the kinder gentler I this is Canada's surpassing in most people's eyes. Okay. Here's why I say the next to. which. Is Hard to do. We talk about Jordan six rings like he wants six but hopefully, he did more there with six he one, six with two three peats. Do you know how hard it is to do a three peat? Here's our heart in the last fifty, four years there've only been three of them and Jordan's got two of them. Into two, top ten players of all time, the League Cup Shaq and Colby to get the other one Lebron even went weighed in Bosch didn't get a Free Pete Tim Duncan never even repeated. Let alone repeat is that this Showtime Lakers didn't three peat. Celtics bidding repeat. It is hard. So he didn't just win six he won six and two three peats saw Lebron has to three p. here's the second thing. That you. See Your trip this way i. here's the other one show 'cause I got a man Marcel is on my side. Other thing show has Lebron less keeping real Hebrew be real. Are Any LIBBRA's teams are any of them the all time greats teams you know the Showtime Lakers the eighty three sixers the seventy two. Lakers. Obviously, the Jordan Bulls I would say, no I don't think the Miami teams were all time. Great. They were good but they want to we know they should've wanted at least another one and Lebron way was so great individually that they won. But were they a great fit not really so and obviously the Cleveland team what an all time great. We got the gold stage to he has to have an all time great team. How can you be goat? We can't point to one year teams. That's one of the best ever may be best ever. So I'VE HIM IN AD can win three in a row. They definitely are an all time great team. That's what it would take. Rusada here is what I hate about takes like your own I'm not gonNA. Say I hate your take I'm not gonNA personalize it. In your. What I hate about takes like your own you cherry pick stats we've only ever seen three three petes and modern NBA history. Have we ever seen a guy in modern? NBA History go to nine out of ten NBA finals. No let's just turn a blind eye to that. Let's Cherry pick stacks I watch another network in which they cherry pick staff and they pick their criteria in which they classify. A great as well. He was a nine or ten time NBA scoring champion and the regular season. Why don't we talk about assist champion because that will help Michael Jordan's argument you cherry pick a stat for your argument Bruce Hart and that is my problem with people like you who make these arguments based off cherry picking so you want to give me a classification saying this well, he didn't play on one of the all time greatest teams therefore, he can't be one of the all time greatest players I would argue Tom. Brady. Hasn't played on one of the all time greats teams. That Lebron doesn't have one of the all time. Greatest. T say he's the goat. But he's clearly an all time. Great. But the. The nucleus of that statement is Lebron's not to go because he doesn't have one of the all time greatest teams I would again push back and say Tom Brady does not have one of the all time greatest teams. Even if you WANNA go seven, they didn't win the Super Bowl you think about eighty five bears you think of the Dolphin so you can't cherry pick a stat that services your argument crews proofs are just to make an argument blind. The eyes of the masters feed that what you were feeding them, expect them to digest. What's so Chris but auto brady has more tumor than anybody else Oh, that's the difference. Lebron does the. Other thing is this show and this is one reason I say he's got to get to. It's not to eat Jordan was six. It is to be at least five hundred in the final. Okay I. Would mean. People Fair. He will equal Jordan was six. Then then get into twelve because my boss he wanted much as Jordan and got twice as much. You gotta give him the nod. Yes bill now see I've never heard that quality of that is a good take if somebody's and that's what I've told Marcellus though if he can go six for twelve now is like he won six and got there twice as much if our biggest not on the Bron James is that he went to too many finals than what the heck kind of foolish logic do we function with as a society that critique sports? Yeah look up. That was some hell of a fight and right there but the referee stayed out of it. To give the now the crisper. Sorry. Yeah. You got that time liberals already to my mind, but I'm not going shell time in this right now 'cause I know there's an argument out there to make. Here's the thing that's GonNa. Really, help Lebron James One is a minor one and one is a major one. Let's start with the major one. He just WanNa Championship with the Los Angeles, Lakers that is a different megaphone than winning one with the Cleveland Cavaliers and Miami. He let's just be real about this the elevations of this championship and maybe more championships will help them in this conversation. Michael Jordan. Is Great as is a great as he was only had one franchise really megaphone in his greatness and it led to all of this. But born if Lebron James K walk into Laker veal people were saying hockey Lebron's as even be all time Laker last year, and now if he wins more championships going forward all the Laker Faithful, which is the greatest grandest fan base out there would sing his praises to close this conversation. The last one is a minor point. I don't know if people really care about competition and I know by Jordan's amazing and that level of play was more difficult in some respects but in the Broadway being guarded by credit in do man. The perimeter defensive perimeter players the level of players and Lebron has to go against as little different Chris. Sorry. You have to respect that that Michael Jordan had to go through. By Russell out there round Michael Jordan Michael Jordan Guy, hand checked. When Michael Jordan got to the? Hammered Day Winnie, we'd be had to finish that the real he had to finish over the best era of seven footers ever you know shack. Robinson morning, win Lebron is the praying I bought. You secondly, when you get into the paint, there's nobody. Come on. And that was the other thing you see very quickly must consider and must take into consideration Phil Jackson Michael Jordan one chips Phil Jackson no longer had Michael Jordan. He wants a more chips, Lebron James Wherever he goes, he takes chips with him the tips follow. Bron James at least the finals appearances followed Lebron James. What does he have to do to be seen that I time will tell coming up make commission browns have won four straight but we'll tell you if they're about to be humbled by the steelers. Picks up next week. Back time now for rewarding performance sponsored by capital one, what's in your wallet? The browns. have been rewarding their fans with their best start in over two decades. Now, Cleveland takes their four game win streak on the road Sunday against the AFC north rivals in Pittsburgh the browns have not had good luck against the steelers they're only four, twenty, seven and one of them. Since two, thousand, four I was there for two of those losses off Marcellus. Tonight I got hurt I didn't into the laws or the success with I was on I are stealing money collecting. Marcellus do expect the steelers to humble Baker, Mayfield and the browns. I do I expect know how them in? This is a fight for the bunk bed the top bunk top book I. Don't know some people. You can fall off and you had the rail but I got. I got a view. Why you call, we have fallen off I'm staying up there but this is a bit fight right here because these are the two teams caught up in the middle because in the back of the house, I in that Tent Cincinnati bengals and that big moment after the Baltimore Ravens. So right now you're fighting for your book position and if you're the Pittsburgh steelers on top of being a better. Team to me, they need a win to certify that they're a better team a big win I'm talking about beating the giants beat the broncos beaten at Texas it'd be eagles not do in terms of between the ears psychology you need from a win they don't have that on their record right now. So fighting for that position, you can't let Cleveland all of a sudden leapfrog you in division so It's hard to imagine a five and workers. You can't imagine it all. I think the steelers the steelers do historically man I. I don't think the steelers will helmet or browns the steelers. The only advantage they have to me between ears like you know that you own a team or not, and sometimes you gotta use visceral language like that because you know some cats every time you out there. Like we own them. I got I got that Dudayev that player on that team, the steelers though they're undefeated but the cumulative records of the team they beat, you alluded to it three, fifteen, one I guess dealers ain't nobody I can't say the browns have beat anybody and his hard because in the NFL I think they're like six or seven teams we currently consider good and everybody else come like, sorry I don't know but browns have a great running game. Browns have dependable passing game right now with the play action path browns have a phenomenal rushing defense browns have A. Good. Head coach the browns on paper should beat the steelers to me based on. If they are trial tested, which they are the questions is simply lies can the browns get out of their own way? That's what I don't know but I if the steelers might win, but it's not going to be one of those humbling defeats. So the jury is still. Out On. Their quarterback to Cleveland browns and Baker Mayfield. Correct. Okay. So you say they beat nobody Pittsburgh steelers. Oh, they've beaten somebody that guy who still under the jury in terms of Baker Mayfield you ready for this one and two against the Pittsburgh steelers fifty seven completion percentage. One, hundred, eighty, nine passing yards. That's not good. eighty-one Passer Rating. That's the. Same Baker Mayfield that we still don't know if he's improved or not. So that Baker Mayfield goes against a defense that averages five sacks per game, and you already have these numbers out there is Baker Mayfield going to rise to the Cajun not history says no against team hell no coming up uncle Jimmy everything in perspective with his thoughts on today show. Shipping I should. Speak. Before we go. Let's bring in our mom's brother Uncle Jimmy. So what are your thoughts on today's show toll? To say. If you don't talk about it you got to be. About it. All right man what the hell you know about being on. Know nothing about being. More said that a man don't get old being no food. Okay I'm here to tell you Tom Brady ain't nobody's food okay. Tom Brady is at a point in life. Too Old to be called by group or. A point. Ways learned to work smarter not harder. uh-huh. Tried to plane to you can put you in one. Talk, you tried to say. Throw the ball like he used to. A. Little Young. For us to. None of us do it as often as we used. referencing. Sankoh. To do that in his sleep, they managed a whole bunch of things.

"Today answers matter more than ever before. That's why IBM is helping businesses manage customer questions with Watson Assistant It's conversational. Ai Designed to work for any industry. Let's put smart to work visit IBM Dot Com Slash Watson Assistant. For yourself presented by day. Marceau's Wiley here who says feel good today. Should I wore my most basic suit trying to give you dubbed and you might just have me himself manager sued go. Really like popping off the screen. But like you over there, thanks wars continues up here. But let's get it started in Dallas where the season is not going as planned for the Cowboys Dallas is two and five and has been now outscored sixty three to thirteen in their last who gaze by McCarthy's coaching has been questioned as well in his first season as Gallison's Day coach. But yesterday Jerry Jones said there wasn't leadership void in the Locker Room? Jones was asked if he deserves any of the blame for the cowboys struggles as the team's general manager and had this to say smoke. Not much. Blame is the GM take as much as you give me when you're talking about how great it is and I've had the last say on every time since team. Period. Ratto. You've a bit. Sorry. Do you like Jerry Jones Flex and water cowboys are struggling when ice cube. Pro Sale of some time to think I've had some time to ponder he had to say. I Love Jerry. Jones flexing you. I do and I have been one of Jerry. Jones is big creek biggest critiques. GotTa keep it a hundred chart us what I do. That's what we do on his show. Other shows go live to Ya. ooh Go keep it one hundred I love his flexing because he's right. Jerry Jones the general manager has set the cowboys up Marcellus I've come on his show repeatedly the last three months and said cowboys have one of the best rosters in football offensively. WHO ORCHESTRATES TO ROSTER? Not The head coach who has traits to roster not the offensive coordinator, the general manager orchestrates to roster. Jerry Jones. The general manager has done a phenomenal job. People are going to be like crazy. Now, let me talk to your Nice defensive tackle. Jerry Jones came into the season two first round picks the defensive tackle Gerald McCoy Dante Repo Defensive End Jerry Jones came into the season with two top defense bands Everson griffen thirteen and a half sacks in two thousand seventeen demarcus lawrence fourteen, and a half tax in two thousand seventeen. In. The NFC. Defensive. Back. Jerry Jones a lot at three second and third round picks to defense back since twenty seventeen. What else do you want from the defensive side of the ball y'all just look at it. He has done everything. He could do it cornerback and defensive line. Yes. Safety there's some voids. Okay. This big Bro let's talk about offense quarterback top-flight. He tagged them still there Zeke top five pick a running back three top flight receivers first round Amari Cooper first round. CD. Lamb third round Michael. Gallup. What else could Jerry Jones the general manager have done Flex Oldham Jerry show your muscles pop the suit because as a general manager Jerry Jones has done a phenomenal. I'm GonNa talk about the owner Jerry Jones late. Statement in or avoided to go. On to say because I couldn't believe all the praise you Jerry Jones. Yeah. Okay. Well, you know what? Jerry Jones as a person that has the title of owner and GM I`Ma give him all the praise and yet both who Our Jerry Jones I would flex my damn self fool. You could bit dance on the water now get with Jerry Jones right their flex on Jerry Jones but also be frustrated right now if you're Jerry Jones, you feel like there there's rain on your wedding right now a new plan big winning and this destination to win where everybody's going to come and see the cowboys and everybody's going to travel to see the cowboys everyone wants to see the star on the side of this helmet and everyone is expecting greatness. Why? Because greatness starts at the top and Jerry Jones a hall of fame owner remember that when you try to take some shots at him as owner, he's a hall of Famer and I'm not a guy that could. Take Away someone else's success you can't strip someone of their accolades. Once you accomplish it is in the bank and what has Jerry Jones accomplish as an owner we all noted he has three championships and only two franchises out there have more championships than Dallas cowboys. So unless your name is Eddy Debartolo and I know your names both start with e but your name, any departmental Lsu name is Robert Kraft Art, Rooney senior or whoever runs the Damn Green Bay packers, nobody nobody who walked this planet conflicts on Jerry Jones and turns up accomplishment in terms of championships as being owner. But now let's look at him in terms of why he's frustrated and I can see why frustrated He was out there planning something that was going to be so spectacular and all he needed was a coach, a championship coach, a coach who could stand through adversity as Jerry Jones says I've got the right guy because in case it, which is it hits the fan one someone who stand in the face of adversity with credibility and I don't even know if this is where do ability that's Mike McCarthy is but why is he frustrated right now because he brings into Mike McCarthy. But there's no off season own `field sessions no training camp no preseason lose the starting. QUARTERBACK and his second string quarterback injuries to strongest unit office ally, which was that was the the real staple of this team. They are now on their office, a lineman combination right now. So the injuries everything is up ended it and it started to rain on Jerry Jones with big Bro I'm GonNa give you the GM Jerry Jones I told you I was going to give you no, no, no, no no. The owner Jerry Jones is not getting absolved of all the cowboys woes because the owner Jerry Jones is who put the cowboys in this predicament general manager Jerry domes. Owner Jerry Jones it ain't nothing but booze get off my states everybody Apollo when we come out with the broom. Come out with a broom sweeper law stage. That's what I'm doing with the owner. Here's what's he went to the grocery store the general manager, audie ingredients Marcellus, he went to whole foods he wants to trade a Joan he's about that money go to. Grocery stores I. GotTa go to because I'm on a budget he went to them grocery stores that big dog Marcellus wildly shop at because he got autumn contracts keep out the nicest ingredients zeke Elliott gave money demarcus Lawrence on the league in sacks NFC and sex gave them that money oh, CD lamb yes. Let me get a little bit of CD Land Please but here's a problem. Marcella he hired a head chef at a fast food chain. I'm not talking in and out. The higher, the head chef food chain chef came in Mike McCarthy, he came in and he saw these ingredients that he didn't know what to do them. Oh. Owner Jerry Jones put a piece in place that undermine all the ingredients that general manager Jerry Jones bought, and that is why the owner Jerry Jones has no right to flex. How can you go out there Marcellus get all these wonderful pieces, all these amazing pieces defensively offensively. But then go out there and get a chef a chef from. Days now okay. Then double quarter pounder with cheese got me to Middleton. Middle School. But who can't use that head chef in Mike McCarthy because that is a problem that owner Jerry Jones did owner Jerry Jones made the mistake starting with the sleepover with the head coach owner Jerry take. Over over okay. These. Places every Jones put him in a Condo know how? Is. How things end. Okay we're Mike. McCarthy going to sleep. Talk about it. Owner Jerry. Jones does that owner Jerry Jones allows for Mike Nolan to be defensive coordinator, Mike, Nolan. Terrible. Even the coordinator owner Jerry Jones Retains Kellyn Moore's Yosi. But then has more calling the place. Make that may sets there's a tug of war you're bringing in a new coach who's the Tories for being a decent plate caller an offensive mind an offense guru out your thirty, one, thirty, two year, old offensive coordinator and Caitlyn more call in the plane owner Jerry. Jones his undermine all the success. The General Manager Jerry Jones is built up owner. Jerry Jones didn't make a mistake. The only thing I could give you in your point is that Mike McCarthy is off to a slow start slower Dan Nicole rapidly sleekness rapidly than he was when he was in Green Bay and that slow start but you gotta understand what this situation really is and let me break it down for you. Big Dogs because I don't think you're understanding the long game right now you keep talking about everything that's happening in the now and not thinking how this could potentially set up the future you ready for this what? What's the Super Bowl preview right now if most people had their way as seems like by teems success, I'm GonNa say Tampa the city Tampa Kansas City Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh. Tampa last year. were. They a winning team no seven and nine ten. Okay. Very conscious at Kansas City go ahead. Okay and speaking of mistakes. A double quarter pounder is actually a half-pounder. Let me stop. Tampa Bay. Winning know, what did they start last year to entire war absolute. And same coach interesting some parallels, commonalities Pittsburgh with their team last year no eight not a winning team quarterback got knocked out. I wonder if that's a parallel to what's happening in. Dallas. Oh, how do they start off last year two and four Oh God it's raining. Right now, but the key ingredient to success is not talent. Brother is perseverance. If you're Jerry Jones, you persevere with Mike McCarthy why do I regard because before when he was faced with adversity, a foreign twelve roster green bay turned out to eight, eight, thirteen and three next year couple of years later they won the Super Bowl so good jerry. Jones Dan who's in their cooking Oh you know why it doesn't matter I have talent. I have a super bowl coach. You want to sit there and say well restaurant and he used to cook where's the Mike. McCarthy has been there as Jerry Jones even said he has the credibility, the resume and the do Marcellus. Here's your issue my brother no she perseverance at times. It can be a trait worthy of admiration don't do that to the. Of Two tons of candy time. Here's the other thing at other times s loser talk, Marcellus perseverance and relationships. Can Be Loser speech I promised I'll change Prom install change. Just made the mistake once I promise, it won't be the same tomorrow. That's what cowboys fans have been for twenty five years. How much longer do you want them to have to persevere they? Promised all change I promise I. Won't Be Eight and eight Jason Garrett again until twenty, one, thousand, nine, hundred, Eighty, eight, get up of here. McCarthy, promise change. I promise the defensive turnaround a promise that what you saw against the browns. You won't see against the giants. So we saw it again. Today and we do we will see it against the cardinals. saw it again, I promise all change or stop telling cowboys, fans, cowboys, players, the cowboys organization. Stop. Telling them to be content with this complacent. Telling them to connect you. You keep forgetting look I'm a married man and I'm not gonNA say anything about my wife I talk about mayors the institution. Let's just say my wife married a better looking version of me when he married me right. Versus this dude right here was a better then but guess what you don't take away that greatness was you don't take that away now look at me and you can't take away the cowboys success in three super bowl championships on their hall of fame owner just because now you're looking at them like they're struggling. This is where perseverance come. Let me go ahead. Go ahead go ahead what they're QB one who's not playing right now. They had three losses what their qb one. Let's talk about those losses this you WanNa talk so much about him. They lost to the Cleveland Browns, right? That's a two loss team five two. That's a good team. So they lost it in with their keeping they got beat down with the qb one. EPIC comeback almost the rams they lost close games ramp first game of the year rams only lost two games. Seattle, Oh my God almost won that game last play last-second. Almost. One loss team. You look at this combined with the fact that now we're looking at Tampa Bay Pittsburgh this year super bowl preview when last year they weren't winning teams. This is what Jerry Jones is dealing with. He's dealing with a situation circumstance now that nobody else is doing and it's still gonna I care about you too much care about you to. To let you draw a parallel between you and the cowboys are you and Mike McCarthy Marcellus. Here's a championship or Shelton rhymes of life changing. You talked about your wife who he married is not the same you. She got now when I came on this show you about twenty pounds heavier your little sloppy, the suitland a little too tight I came on. So on our pictures, billboard pitches, you looked a little rough around the edges look. This the same Marcellus America Oh this tomorrow. Tell US how before But now. Look more Marcellus jacket this a little bit bit. Him a bit better Marcellus cheeks fellow pit tighter judge but you look like eating. In bars came all set Marcellus you have shown me. Of Life Yes. The cowboys defined haven't even show me a sign of life. The defense don't look no better. You gave up thirty eight against the seahawks all you gave up forty nine against the Brown or you gave up thirty four, the you gave up thirty eight against the cardinals in doesn't look better if they would just show me the same signs of. Life. The chew have shown me in. Then I'd be like all in God but I haven't seen life from the cowboys seen life from you. I'm sure your lovely wife seen life from you show me a sign of life show me that you will change. Don't tell me that you want to all k first of all, you hit me where it feels so good. Look so good. I might get divorced. Let Me Stop I'll know. The size of life have to come when it matters most, and for the cowboys they came and think playoffs despite them having the same amount of wins as a division league team who they also play this. So. When you want to see a sign of life, it has to make a and it has to matter guess what this week I guarantee you lost the I did I did how you America out of me lost a bit up yet but since I'm keeping his slim up here, right now we go. Guaranteed a cowboys finally, who's The quarterback? We've known this. The point is there on the third quarterback with their qb one you will see the cowboys show that life. It's unfortunate. They're in this position, but trust me big dog look good. At the top of the hour. News Bachelor, the goes on Sunday.

Then by Hyundai, Lamar Jackson's ravens had an impressive five in one record despite the start the march past the numbers have been under the microscope the Ravens Star stone fewer touchdowns, and passing through the first six games than during his. season. Last year and go Marcellus. Let's talk about unanimous has shine worn off I. Shine. Worn off Lamar Jackson this season. No it has not worn off and I don't expect a debate on this one I'm not from anyone with intelligence and you have intelligence. So I expect us to agree on this a put some respect on his name the way you didn't put respect on Jerry Jones name you know hall of fame owner Jerry Jones that you took slights that this is a mvp you win animus MVP only been two NFL history and we're talking about one but no, the SEAN is not worn off on the Mark Jackson let's talk about what's really happening the dynamic, the mental dynamic deaths current. Magic, yourself just lying there in the dark. and. Then someone sleep no. No use this. Why am I lying in the dark? You don't. Think Damn. Close my eyes? Gheorghe let's do that you're. Dark Your eyes are closed. Lights are on is licensed arm not walk with me now by day of your life. Dr You. Start sin the dark and then someone. Is Open turns the lights on and you look and then you gotta close is again you know why? Because those lights are pretty bright, right? You can't see in that moment. Right? There is blinding how? Yes yes and what was blurry last year in the march excellent F- football field what happens after that all you don't have to dim the lights your eyes adjust to the same light intensity, and then next thing you know you're sitting there looking at something as bright as it was last year but now Used to it and I'll show you are guilty of this. I can tell by your expression and react I like to take a light has not gotten dimmer. You'll just gotTa just the two at the same time comes up here Navy a finals, and tells me all the Bronze Age when he goes out there and score the triple double is just another Wednesday but when Jimmy Butler doesn't get their paret. The same thing is happening right now in terms of Lamar Jackson let's talk about the numbers because the rhetoric I think my rhetoric you're already persuaded you sock. Well, let's see the numbers in never slipped never fall when you're talking about Lamar Jackson this is in comparison to himself, which was a unanimous MVP last year. Whoa a better passer rating this year. This. Dim the lights or not not didn't. Better. Test touchdown interception this year. The lights better touchdown percentage rushing average. My goodness and is winning at a better clip. Lamar Jackson is some mission is just one off of his taste from last year and touchdowns three fewer and interceptions and one more game. One you talk about this shine is off the lights are dimmer on no brother we just adjusted. I would have A. Good Tate hot, dog. I've thought about Dr. Down that was good. You're wrong wrong wrong and no you're wrong because you've told me before Marcellus snitch. No, what we? Doing here be real America can I keep it but grab my phone To. Sell. You told me Emmanuel Acho that I drive a crusty Bentley and bins to I'll see. You said I'd drive crusty business. He said I. Drive across the Bentley County Average Bentley Convertible Marcellus is roughly two hundred, six, thousand dollars but I drive a Christie one. Yeah, you do. Why do I drive a crusty one? Not Because Bentley's aren't nice but because Tamar Solis an older Bentley is now crusty not that the bentleys not nice. But it became crusty because we've seen them before Lamar Jackson not saying he's not nice. I'm saying Lamar Jackson is still a Bentley. He's the lease but if Marcellus can say that are older Bentley across the Bentley because we've seen. Bentley. Then I submit that Lamar Jackson. The. Same Lamar Jackson is still a Bentley, but he can be a little dusty. Marsteller. Numbers Bro. Last year two weeks seven Lamar Jackson had the number two ranked offense. Now he has a number twenty, seven, three office I'm not going to say Lamar Raina Bentley. I'm not gonNA say that but I'm GonNa say it's a little bit dusty last year Lamar Jackson through weeks seven I. believe he averaged two hundred fifty or so yards a game two, hundred, thirty five right now he's in the high hundreds I'm not gonNA say Lamar. Not a bit leaving. Dusty last year Marcellus Lamar Jackson average yards rushing a game right now he's at about sixty five I'm not gonNa sit here and say that he's not a Bentley but in the wise words Marcellus Wiley maybe Lamar Jackson just a little bit dust. Know you've got this wrong even though I could see how you got this misconstrued your Bentley is nice. You just need to spend two hundred, six, thousand and twenty dollars and get it washed every now and then you say, I, caught you slip it that's all you do if you look at the more Jackson, you don't even need to say we gotta do anything different all you gotTa do is say Maybe. They to wash over and his team just a little bit and that's what they're in the process of doing their goes haven't changed their approach to their goals have changed for various reasons. One Marshall John Do you remember him time? Pro Bowler All. Retired correct. Oh you retired. Yeah that Kinda. Hurts the run blocking last was number three. This year drops to twelve. Okay. Give you that. But the past block was number one last year still number two this year. So what's happening really is the Russia tips by Lamar Jackson three fewer this year why? Why are we going preserve because these regular season games we kind of go and get through. These are what we have the number one point differential in the NFL. One of the key indicators of how good a team really is. They still have the number one rush offense so not one brush office. The Mark Jackson kind of chilling like foot off the dusty bitterly gas a little bit right and now I don't know if you've been here long enough to pandemic. Have you been Runyon Canyon yet a yeah. Not like a book. Okay I got these workouts any suicide fit themselves okay. Feel. Okay. I. WanNA break. Mine either Russian detail for you. Will you I go to run your? Can you do what everyone else does go to pass his traditional pathway, all the country right and then after about ten times up there, somebody jumps out the bushes at you from Oh they're more pass to the top. You start to realize do this process. We can have the same goal, make the suit like it looks, but I can get there a different way. This team is now internally constructed slightly different a little washing of this team too strange. They're like that. That's all there don't like. That, I'M NOT GONNA I'm not gonNA knock that because I have here is can you maintain collective success while losing individuals success I? Think that's what Lamar Jackson of Ingo are maintaining collective success while losing individuals success talked about Patrick Mahomes two years ago fifty touchdown passes. Dude. has next year and this year he's not gonNA eat more than likely but the team is maintaining collective success. Lamar Jackson. The team's maintaining collective success in his however losing because individuals success but the to get to the question. Marcellus, I think about the sign I think about like he's not we don't perceive Lamar the same because we've seen him before do this crazy thing. Your birthday is coming up here in a month and yours to Monto. For your birthday last year. Do you remember? No Damn Bad I can T. Remember. I thought it will. You probably thought it was spectacular. Thought it was special but less than a year. Later, you don't even remember what you got for your own birthday. So it's been a year when we first saw the market, it was spectacular, right? It was special but about a year later, we don't really remember the same Lamar because there's a signing new Aaron, Rodgers Baldwin again, signing new Tom Brady and a new organization assigning Russ. Cook moment right Lamar Jackson lost a shine. It don't mean a ravens of loss best. They are one loss to the Kansas City chiefs but Lamar Jackson individually as I looked at them, I'm like. Okay it's not the same. Oh, my God Lamar. Jackson I'm used to see but I think that's on us. It's own our recession how we're we're bored of his same success It doesn't look like a highlife last year was assistant Natty Bingo game when you saw the Mark Jackson spinning out of control reverse, clockwise etc and now when you see Lamar Jackson has spectacular place, you already walk into that moment with a expectation last year I was so enamored with him that when he came to l. a. out went to see him I was at the Coliseum watching him play. This the rams and this year pandemic. Obviously. But if there weren't a pandemic, I wouldn't go out my way to see because already tested. All right. What's that? Michael Jackson? I'll need to go again, I know what's going to happen he's GonNa be Great. He's going to be successful and the team is going to win but this is one of those teams that have set their sights on playoff success they wanted to get in there with the best possible Kinda like Lebron James. This. Is Try a little bit but you know when it counts, we have to be ready for that moment. I think that's what they're faking for there to be more shine in my opinion from our Jackson. I got to see him do something Marcella, we haven't seen before if. Dusty if my Bentley is crusty, maybe acid change up spice it up a little bit. Maybe you get a new paint job on the maybe I should add some ribs they say don't add. Because it's classic. Let Marcellus Telit Barcella. He hasn't seen before. So Lamar I gotta see something that I seen before I need to see a playoff win and hopefully a super bowl win and that's going to be right back coming up they. Turned down an offer to get back in the NFL I'll tell you why that's a terrible look. He didn't join Washington practice squad when they offered him a job. Yes Back to speak for yourself, let's talk about Eric, ries safety declined an offer to join Washington practice cross and. I just don't think plan on practice. Squad. Or indicative. Of. My. Career. Play with the panthers. Last season has received just one offering twenty, twenty, three join Colin Kaepernick in protest during the national anthem back in two thousand, sixteen in September Catholics said the NFL was keeping read out of the League tweeting while the NFL runs propaganda about how they care about black life. There are still actively blackballing Eric read for fighting for the Black Community Eric set to franchise record last year and is one of the best defensive players in the League so. Is it a bad looks re decline Washington's offer my. Ice. Is terrible terrible bad is an understatement. It's a terrible look Agree to decline Washington's offer. Let me preface with and the NFL egos Eric has accomplished a lot in the NFL a whole lot of believe he's made a pro bowl former first round pick like dude has been top flight safety in his career but I have to remember remind everyone the market dictates your value. Yes it is a terrible look because sometimes Marcellus we only give attention to certain parts of the story and not others. Okay. This paint the full picture we can't have Colin Kaepernick come out and say the Eric Reid is being blackballed not being given an opportunity to. Get a job, but then he quite literally gets offered a job and he turns it down. It's not the top. He won there have been more talented players accept lesser. Let me bring up Dez Bryant. If the cowboys would've won a couple of Super Bowls Hall of Famer Okay He's not but he's also the cowboys all time touchdown reception leader. We'll probably gonNA cowboys ring honor. He just signed a practice squad yesterday with the Baltimore. Ravens, let's talk about the name, Y'all might not know Brandon car drafted in two thousand and eight started every single game since two, thousand, eight, one, hundred, ninety, two, consecutive starts he started the season on. Practice squad. Let's talk about Cam Newton name everybody knows he's thirty second highest paid quarterback, a former NFL MVP the market. Your value, you WanNa play in the NFL. Then you gotta take what they're willing to give you, and if you're not gonNA take what they're willing to give you. Then at least let's tell the totality of the narrative. We can't have statements like you're being blackballed. You can't have your home east make statements like they're being blackballed. You can't have news outlets, make statements like you're being blackballed because people will begin to believe it and the fact of the matter is. Eric was offered a job. It might not have been the job you wanted, but it was a job. You were given I. Think it's terrible look to reject an opportunity. Anina. Yeah, I'M GONNA take a little off that fast ball even though I understand where you're coming from say is not a bad look and it's not a good look so I feel myself a little fence riding on this one because of experienced now everything you said is deadly accurate and true. In, terms of who eric read is is see-saw effect who you think you are and what the market and the team stink. You are now riga sit out there and say, Oh last year you know I was balling out of control capper nick wanted to testify for him as well but we have to remind ourselves that he was on the twenty third ranked defense last season that allowed the second most points in the NFL, which means you could be doing good in a bad situation which most people look at you evaluate say how good are you because the situation and the team was so bad let's see who he was in terms. Of ranking out of seventy one safety's Eric was ranked sixty ninth out of seventy one St and twenty, nine, thousand, nine Yuck has not made a pro bowl since two thousand thirteen. Okay. So I understand why you still have visited grander ability cause you bought in your world last year but in reality totality their ranking, you much lesser than you want to be ranked. So it was hard to get that ego back in the bottle. It's hard to just get all of what you've accomplished back in the bottle humble yourself, and now being a position where you're a practice squad player what retires players in the NFL is ego mostly. Physically, you still can go out there and do it. I was a ten year veteran who had opportunities after that ten fear and let me tell you what the Eagles told me a man. They turn you a lot different now than they did when you on top of the mountain and your ego was like what players looking at you like they want you to be the one who goes and gets their helmet, go get their water whatever may be and practice squad makes him. Think they think less than me asked me to do boy on the tape that's not happening. So I understand where his eagle is what retires you is I rather do nothing. Then go out there and be humble to that degree and Eric agreed is caught between having some success but not enough success to earn the title he what you like. I don't have an issue with rejecting the job. I have an issue with rejecting the job when the narrative has been painted, the jobs aren't being offered. Okay. have an issue. Okay. I have an issue Marcella society right now with. So bicycle as in is that we just have to paint legitimate and for pictures I don't have an issue rejecting adopt my experiences, my expertise two, thousand, fourteen, get two, thousand, thirteen, the eagles trade for me from the Cleveland Browns I make the team the first day on Saturday final cups I make the team Monday I'm getting a fresh frayed because we have a Sunday. Night Game I got a call from general manager Howie. Roseman Acho we got to let you go Dan I got a call instantly from the New York giants giants they WANNA. Put me on practice squad I hit on my age and I say, Hey, I just made a team. I'm not going nobody's practice squad what you mean on a better player than a practice squad player my agent said, well, do you any other offers I said man now Well. Then it looks like you're joining their practice squad went to the giants practice squad, and I was on an active roster five weeks. Later to squad is not a period practice squad a comma, not a the end it is a means to an end. I have an issue Marcel listed for going to paint a picture that the man is holding people down which. In my opinion it is in some situations we just got to paint a real picture because otherwise we're gonNA continue to perpetuate divisive society. We're going to continue to perpetuate a divisive NFL the NFL the most divisive it's been since I've known it, and that's that's where that's where my instrument I'm with you. Now on that part that slice sliver let's talk about that. Where's your ego now versus where it's been throughout your entire career if you're eric read like if someone offered you just an opportunity to be on a practice squad into beginning of your career, you take it because beggars can't be choosy. You just want an opportunity shop. But now when you feel like you have all of this equity, you've afforded yourself some privilege. Then now you start looking at it like a luxury more than a necessity in terms of opportunity and what did they say about luxury is the home of complaints because when you have so many choices all of a sudden, you get a little hired into ground you. Get a little higher on a horse. You start saying I'm above that and that's where we'd is doing right now. Look I don't like Eric Re the person he knows that too since I'm not a fighter he has nothing to do with me like we ain't GonNa beat this hour we eagles scrap over this but I like what he stands for I. Just don't like how he goes about it. You're in a world right now we're Earl Thomas doesn't have a job if Thomas they've got a damn job what are you talking about you better jump yourself on the practice squad except the Eagle can't accept that right now and that was tough about him and for color cap relate to say that he's being blackballed not at all. It's a situation where he has been confrontational. He literally walked midfield and had a scrap with a guy over policy over program over ninety million dollars committed to his cause. So I get the black power fist can you loosen it up a little bit and be a better team mate? That's what I think. The message is being sent to them join now by Fox NFL, analyst Lavar Arrington. So lavar is it a bad look? Re declined Washington's. It's a bad look based off of the reasoning I. Think. I'll echo what you guys have already been touching on if you're going to decline it. Because you feel like for whatever. Reason is you do not want to accept the the offer to that team then decline it. But the put it out there and or public consumption knowing what you're attached to it. So bad look because once you put something like that out there, it's going to be left up to interpretation and everybody's going to interpret it the same way which is they're going to associated just like we did what Kapernick said about him being blackballed out of the League to begin with. So it's a bad look because even if you did not want to go to the Washington football team based upon. These reasons, guys you don't put that out there because you already know what's connected to what you have stood poor in terms of of things that you brought as as peaceful protests and beliefs to the workplace. So now you're sending out a signal, every other team that you may want to go play on their active roster and you're not you're not taking into consideration the damage that a statement like that could be considered to be because you look at somebody like Antonio Brown Antonio, Bryant who? Are Dead Dez right that's who just got picked up on the on the practice squad. Yeah. The Baltimore Ravens and the coaches already saying already that they're going to play them, they're going to use them. So you're as good as you know you are you think you are you have been it's really be a problem we're in Cova guys. So just take an unconventional route in an unconventional time. Correct. I'm what you right there. Let me put the people at home on gain sometimes. In the NFL you don't necessarily deserve to be on a team, but she got a life raft and that life raft is typically a head coach maybe a defensive coordinator maybe a D line coach. If he has enough power, it's the person who makes sure you stay in the League when I got released by the Philadelphia Eagles I got a call from Billy Davies he was my defensive coordinator in Philly he took me from Cleveland affiliate with them. All he said was Acho you're. Out The league, he had left to the NFL and gone to Ohio State. What is my point? Eric read the Guy who drafted him Jim Harbaugh he coaches at Michigan he's not league anymore. Okay. Chip Kelly. He also played for him. He coaches at UCLA. He's not in the NFL anymore. Okay. Jim. Thome Sola. He also was Eric Reid's head coach. He's a Dallas Cowboys Defensive Line coach right now he ain't got no power but who has power to get eric read a job who was his head coach Weaver Boat Ron Rivera the head coach for the Washington football team the same football team that just offered Eric Rita job. You can't bite the hand that feeds you. Ron Rivera is trying to feed you. You can't bite that hand and then let it be perpetuated that the NFL is blackballing you. That's just not how this is going to work. That's only going to perpetuate a problem and not be a part of a solution. What's interesting go? Hey, dog. I was just say what what is acceptable guys is being a backup acceptable. You brought cal Alan and you didn't bring them in as a starter brought them in as a backup is that acceptable? If he ends up being on special teams is going to be acceptable because it sounds like you're going to have a problem. If you don't come in, you're not brought in star right I mean let's be honest here. If you're a backup, there's going to be an issue if they put you out there on special teams, there's going to be an issue. Here. To put me on special teams right. So to me, I would ask you guys what makes it an acceptable offer or team to bring air readhead This situation I mean, look we we're not new to this in terms of what Capra Nick and Eric read our singing interns of opportunity this the same song the capital was saying when he was saying I'm not getting an opportunity whether it was the NFL workout. Was the Seattle Opportunity. As a backup to Russell Wilson potentially or even the Baltimore situation when necessary out the tweet we've seen this before. So now for agreed to attach himself to this, it seems like he wants to go down on the swore as well. He wants to go down and martyrdom as well. All these opportunities and not present it because I don't know what team is going to present. Read it opportunity as your are geared T-, Bona fide starter remember in Washington y'all this year I know they have a one a ton of games, but their defense is ranked fourth and their pass defense is I ranked and so in a situation like that. They have guys and even when the starters go down like did they have other guys that they believe it because they actually have a program that is successful on that side of the ball. So like anything man if you want to play, you just need an opportunity to display that you want to play. But when you get caught up in anything else we're now going to question do you really want the opportunity because it's not gonna come exactly like you want it because you don't have that leverage he knows that, but now he wants to play it differently. So he could become the victim or become sympathetic not working over here but good luck to you. Coming up. Antonio. Brown is back in the NFL we'll tell you AP's return will work out and Tampa nuts speak for yourself. Welcome back to speak play S. L.. Let's talk about Antonio Brown officially back in the NFL AB signed a one year deal with the bucks which reunited him with Tom Brady the same quarterback who was part of. Ron Brown's last game in the lead over a year ago at the Patriots abm start practicing next week and be eligible to play against the Saint, which is a good thing for Tampa since Chris Godwin is dealing with a finger injury Lavar Arrington. is back with this big bro Marcellus. BURST ARE YOU CONVINCED A. Workout with the bud one thousand percent convinced that this is gonNa work out I. Know He's coming in at least they're trying to label it as an insurance policy because of injuries but. This is going to be one of those insurance policies you live off of it turns of that production what AP's GonNa Bring to the Of course he's going ball out the one thing guarantee about a AB is he's going ball out. Now some people say you're also guaranteed to act out and I'm not so certain of that because of the dynamic in this lock will remember this is a situation bruce areas went on record or said no, a b. a coastal before, and he's not coming to this locker room anytime soon but he was planning to backup in this situation coming. Through US office it. But then there's the good cop in this situation as Tom Brady was like look I only know him for so long as a teammate but I will vouch for him and I will support him now encourage him and hopefully keep him in line as much as you can as another person being a teammate and leader of this team. So look at that dynamic good cop backup I bet every single player on this team has UPBRINGING AB. He's a bona fide baller. But now when AB walks in that locker room, it's GonNa be interesting because he knows he has a short leash. She knows that he has to walk a tight rope in terms of his behavior because everyone around them is going to be looking at them like, yes aba support your good. Cup except Bruce Areas already planted that seed, you do something and already know big dog you do anything and you're Outta here as our insurance policy. So Ab give them the best behavior amp production. My son is Iraq was some of your take but whenever somebody says a thousand percent off, I can trust. Okay. Hey say real I probably won't trust. You can't trust on his I am not convinced a will workout, but ABC won't ruin. I'm not convinced that ABC's going to go out there and and just have complete success and have no issues at all whatsoever. But even if he doesn't I don't think it will be to the. Detriment of the bucks 'cause like you just said a short lease you got issues you about it. I'm reminded of though Marcellus is now be is back under a microscope pressure burst types you feel with. AB He had. He had a whole bunch of self inflicted wounds goes to the raiders. I WANNA to be released the frostbite on the foot helmet issues he was going to be dealt the bills. I don't WanNa play for the bills. But when he signed with the Patriots now allegations start to rise after he plays his first game with the Patriots the allegations come out and when the. Article When Abe is now about to be back with the Bucks Marcellus I'm wondering hang anything going to come up. Now I think a can be cleaned from this point going forward as far as off the field issues being cleaned. The question is what about the issues of yesterday in yesteryear has he handled all those that's really my issue with and I trusted be who is really hasn't been talked about the last three or four months i. think that a workout with the bucks the question is, will he be make sure that everything from the past is under wraps because if not him bucks go have issues all over again. I think that that works to ABC's vantage of making this work I believe it's going to workout exactly for the reasons that you're actually stating and the reason being is if those things were to come up. And you guys forgot to mention that there's a familiarity between leftwards and. Antonio as well. So when you're talking about the level of of knowledge of who he is in that locker room and our organization and your big advocate is, Tom. Brady. You're going to get the benefit of the doubt and that's why getting this opportunity to begin with. Right. So when you look at those things that are still pending and of him, it's all about an act of goodwill we're not microscope is the microscope is on him really more so Than it is his ability to play. So we're not really looking at AB AB goes out there and he underperformed when he gets back out there people may say he doesn't look like the Abia Bowl but that's okay because nobody's going to be offended by him not being a be that was in Pittsburgh, they're going to be offended by if he's flagrant when he's doing interviews, they're going to be they're going to be offended by his actions. And what it is that he may or may not do off the field. So I feel like as long as he keeps himself and line with with being a good teammate and being a great employees for this organization even if those things were to come down to pipe and hit him and something were to get him suspended again I still think it works out in the end and I still think he that outside something crazy. You know him being incarcerated and not being able to play at all I. Still think that he comes out being on this team and being a part of the solution going forward. It's Bay buccaneer. Yes. He's definitely gonNA produce like. That's why I say a thousand percent. Let's not forget who was what six straight years hundred plus catches fish over twelve hundred yards every single year. Good Miss and AP, still since two thousand fourteen has the most touchdown catches over Hopkins De'andre Hopkins and Mike Evans teammate despite only playing one game last year. Good nist. AB, who walks on the team and onto a roster where he can't get double team, he put up those numbers with double teams you double team Emily Mike Evans single covered. You're GONNA leave Chris. Single cover you're GonNa Leave Rob Gronkowski out there just to Rome to acreage. This is a situation where I know he's GonNa Produce. Now let's talk about how's he going to handle all issues from the past and whatever is going on in his personal life. The greatest attribute I would say from all professional athletes that I've encounter is the ability to compartmentalize even a be it turns production to one game in New England or whatever he was going through in. Pittsburgh all those years that was being suppressed or not noticed AB still put out Jane Film Positive came the best game film and that's what I'm banking on right here API knows. I don't think there's another opportunity out there for you because look at this one, look at the penalty of this one, fifteen games last year, you could basically call that a pseudo suspension and then this year eight game. So if you look at it and totality after that is seems like a lifetime ban more. So than just a couple more games or year band so API knows his flits to the fire and Way Be- knows he's GonNa. Go out there and ball and has to stay in line the front of bucket needs is very simple. The risk reward is finally worked and I get it Chris Godwin he's out injured finger you star studded receiver yeah Mike Kevin's. He's been battling different issues different lower extremity issues all season long Bruce Arians knows he's getting up there in age but more importantly Tom. Brady is getting up. There in eighth, they gotta go all in look around the League is other teams that are going to give them a fight other teams that have a lot of firepower. I think Bruce Arians with the buccaneers is finally counted the cost and he said, okay, you know what Ab might run a some issues. But the fact of the matter is Tom Brady has Scotty Miller a five ten receiver from Bowling Green if. I'm not mistaken leading that team and catches. He has Scotty. Miller a dude we had known about or we're not talking about leading that team and targets they're second in targets. If that is what he has was Scotty Miller imagine what he can do what they be I think the risk reward is finally at a break even point to where it is a good decision by the buccaneers workout though I'm still TB. I think it's again enough feel as though it's a no brainer to say that it's a work out because he doesn't i. as you said Marcellus he does not have any other options. He doesn't have any as you love to say he has no runway writing, right? So it certainly has the potential to be. An explosive addition in a positive manner and listen all the talk of of Aryans not wanting him I think it goes back to earlier point that you made Marcellus this is a game of chess not checkers I'm not gonNA let everybody around the league. No, I. Know Tom Brady wants L. Even if all my receivers. Right. So in the end, they were bringing Antonio Brown in one way or the other everybody's healthy somebody's hurt. It's just more justifiable, right? It's easier to put it out there in the media it's more acceptable consumable and you move on from it but they were going to bring Antonio Brown in no matter what the situation was when they were able to bring him in I think Bruce Arians understands what was at stake who would go possibly try to throw a wrench in it seeing that the team has actually starting to play up to the potential that maybe they people were nervous. That they would. So now you're not saying we want them. This is no we're not going to do it until you bring them in I've thought it was well played by Bruce, Arians thought he was well played by the Tampa Bay buccaneers and I think they've all keep in mind dave hat I guarantee you they have had constant contact with Ab and this has been an ongoing process of on boarding him even before now. So they're already acclimated he's already acclimated. He probably already knows the playbook he's probably already been running routes he's going to get in he's going to be fine. Tremendous points you may right there bruce areas having that poker face and this entire off season not letting it out not leaking not letting others onto a sin because it's funny. Seattle was leaking this entire off season would adapt ended up getting them. In this situation Bruce Arians was smart. If this is the case because he knows going to be difficult enough to bring in Tom Brady and others to get them all on the same page why bring in the Media Tich in the distraction of Ab when you can't even plan to after week eight smart play if that's the case Bruce Arians speaking of no run wake who? This is why thousand percent guarantee and this is gonNA work out. He doesn't need a runway. He's not airplane on the game with to finally take off. A helicopter. touchdowns the come at Tampa Bay. They gotTA squad gambled on a forty three year old why not? On a thirty two year old? WHO's a future hall of Famer as? Coming up in our big story, the Cowboys Eagles are both in need of a win, we'll tell you what's team has more to prove on Sunday. For Yourself Bonday Marcellus Wiley up here would Emmanuel. Emit except the feet I like that super free she. Gland, Guacamole Day this hand to the NFC East for our big story, the cowboys and Eagles have a big match on Sunday night. Dallas is coming off a blowout loss to Washington and Andy. Dalton is dealing with a concussion while in feeling Carson Whistling Eagles to a comeback win over the giants both teams have been disappointing only to win the peace affiliate is on top in the divisions. Watch which team has board approved Sunday cab. Or your. Egos my dog I wish I was wearing a green because the eagles got mortar fru oh. Let me lend you the blue everybody knows I played for the Eagles Blah Blah Blah, but I always have to keep it a hundred and honest with y'all do y'all this family is the eagles have more to prove because the eagles are still playing for some to keep it real which Marcellus we already know in Dallas Y'all know what time it is what time they know, what time how many it's imploding Imploding. We said this before don't talk to me about how many wins you were not a same suit and I'm GonNa make it look better. Turn. Eagles get same amount of wins but the eagles right now we're making it look better. That's all I'm well, I'm also going to say is this the jury is still out on the eagles what do I mean? They have a loss to the steelers the undefeated steelers. One Loss Ravens and the ravens only losses to the cheese. Rams the rams would look like a top five team in the NFL outside of the Eagles. Week one loss. TVD. They go on the road, beat the forty niners. One of the best head coaches in the NFL obviously Jimmy V. was out and then they beat the giants. They wasn't pretty win but it was a short week. I'm undecided Marcellus on eagles do y'all suck. Bad or you'll like running or you don't like the fifteenth or sixteenth. Best. Team in league. I, think the jury is still out to me. The Eagles aren't a Nigga they don't make it look pretty but keeping it one hundred, they lost at a steelers everybody's lost to the steelers everybody's loss to the ravens except the chiefs, the teams that the eagles lost to outside of week one Washington football team everybody's lost to. So to eagles have more pressure because if the eagles to the cowboys, Marcel is not in the `nigma anymore like they're just bad I can sit here and try to defend them all I. Want I can give you my my bias eagles takes. We heard Benjamin went we're hearing if you lose to the cowboys I think the jury decided right now jury is still in deliberations. Yeah Eagles we don't know still trying to figure it out cowboys the jury's out as much as I want the cowboys to be great because it makes better TV the Jerry is decided cowboys you all their bad y'all told us your bad. Jerry Jones said there's beef your players are saying there's your. Defensive Coordinator saying y'all can't play high school covered three cowboys. We know the decision the eagles were still trying to figure not disagree with you right there and somehow bias eagles takes i. it seems like you don't want to answer the question who has more to prove. It's The Dallas cowboys because the sky's falling on them, they're coming off an epic loss you have more to prove because you have more to gain equity and you could. Be In first place in this division despite all hail landed on your head this entire season think about it. The Philadelphia Eagles. Are Coming off a win people like you are starting to glow about them. All look at the Philadelphia Eagles they're looking good. How do you have more to prove or more to gain in the situation versus a team that we're so hypercritical about that? No matter what they do we're going to try and find. Something ugly about it, and this year we don't even have to look forward is appearing in broad daylight. Where's their quarterback? Where's they're running back to show themselves? Where's Zeke? Where's the office align on their tenth combination this year already they have eleven guys are come on where's the defense your NFL historically bad right now, where's your backup quarterback? He's got that last week in the team didn't fight form I'm. GonNa. Take this back to how And when you're walking around the neighborhood, you know the gangs drugs poverty wasn't the worse about it. D-. Does work the worst You know what? It was the low ambition people aiming lower than they should just because they are already been beat up by circumstances and I remember saying to myself breath you can't let the exterior defeat you on the inside and I looked at my situation and said it can't get worse food stamps I'm on welfare people are raise walking up to you with their low expectations themselves and they're. Projecting it on you and I'm like, you know what? If it can't get any worse I'm not scared to go out there and see how can make it happen. This is the Dallas cowboys this year it can't get worse and even if it does get worse guess what you're not scared of it anymore because you already felt the way to the whole world on Marcellus respect that I was. Doing bad at it but I'm a sadist you recently admitted to the world and in your book you said this before you're not a fighter hail off I agree to not have not not invite her either. But I have a reason quote a line in which I'm not a fighter. A coach wants told me early on he told me quote said he said if I fight you and I win what do I win? The reason. I'm not a fighters because if I fight you win. I win. Things that make sense and typically fights often more often than not don't make sense if the cowboys play the eagles, and they win. What do they win? Okay. You beat a team who are you for still like y'all aren't very good. The cowboys even if they play the eagles and win Marcellus they prove nothing it doesn't mean that they're going to be. Contenders. It doesn't mean that they're all of a sudden. They're going to cure all of their gigantic losses. It doesn't mean that their defense is better. It doesn't mean that they now have leadership in the locker room even if the cowboys go out there and win sure I believe at that point in time, they should be first place in the division depending on what the Washington football team does. But if they played it eagles and they win if still. Almost, like what do they win eagles play the cowboys and win at a minimum. The debate is over like cowboys and Eagles cowboys just one game back or half a game back. That's over. Now you put that Tibet. If you're the eagles, you can put that debate to bed the cowboys the third worst team in the division if the eagles played them in win if the eagles also go out there and we're like the eagles have more on the lines. Auto you tell them slow. Four looking yes they do. They can win the division and if you went into visit your. By happenstance only. That matters man I'm GonNa take you back to money. Tightly BAE before anything less survive, and then thrive you over here speaking from luxurious experience it sounds like whereas like. and. What I'll tell you about luxury is the House of complaints because when you don't need it when you don't fill that with the cowboys filling that desperation, you sit there and say, well, why even try because even if we try and win a division, when are we going to end up doing that is happening between your ears and that's never happened in between my ears don't mistake that when I say I'm not a fighter because I don't use these two has around us what's between these two years? This is what I fight. We're big dog aloe manipulate where you manipulates you with my words and my feet because I'm running. Up Five between here and I'll fight with those two dogs taken off. But the cowboys are in a situation where is raining it's pouring and guess what if there hasn't drowned us just yet why not? Why not us? It sounds like the boxing cornermen who's like, Hey, man you took his best punch now let's go out there. Sometimes you have to get into battle, take the best punches from the universe. And collective teams, and if you're still standing, let's go to war Marcellus. You are the reason that I drive down the highways and Texas and you look at the billboards and you see mega million now up to nine, hundred, fifty, million dollars for the Lotto because Marcellus continue to say, well, yeah, might be able to win sure if I buy a lot of ticket, there's a chance. Yeah I can win. The likelihood possible there's just a chance and that's my point is law cowboys fans have come with this reality 'cause I've had to come with this reality you know not a cowboys fan per se but. I have affinity towards the cowboys I come to this reality, which is there's no saving the season right now you're starting quarterback is currently your backup quarterback and he's currently hurt your offensive line is in shambles your head coach they don't respect them yet. Even coordinative shouldn't be in the NFL owner is now calling everybody else out and saying, I'm not the one to blame players in the locker room or snitching cowboys fans at this point they. Realize like this season is kind of a wash play for pride if you will you really but nothing besides that. Yeah. Okay. If I want to buy into what you're selling right now let me say this, there's a difference between a season and a program, a winning culture that you're trying to build a new head coach Mike McCarthy. Let's just say this is a Lou season I disagree with it, but let's just say that to have some fun. I told you before Pittsburgh was two and four last year tapper was two and four last year and Pittsburgh losses quarterback in Tampa changes quarterback this year, and all of a sudden they find themselves as super bowl contenders. So if you're the Dallas cowboys don't jump ship fight Buddha's because you can start to establish a winning culture just in one year time we've seen the Pittsburgh. steelers Tampa. Bay buccaneers go from rags to riches black hall of fame quarterback Hey, look Dak Prescott. I'm not going to hall of fame I'm saying Dak Prescott was balling historical numbers pace. This has some perseverance through this season and maybe it will blossom next season coming up Trevor Lawrence is leaving the door open on standing school. We'll tell you what this means for the jets Took next. Make yourself within about. Welcome back to speak for yourself with move on Lawrence. He's a consensus choice to be the number one pick in next year's NFL draft well, hold up on net because yesterday Lawrence left the door open on returning clemson were senior years saying folk mindset has been that I'm gonNA move on but. That decision means a lot for the jets who are currently the only team in the League without a win and they're on track to have that coveted number one. Lavar ARRINGTON backlift with Marcel. Little spit stroke. Burying Bats? Home. To me the jets land the number one pick in Lawrence does enter the draft. The jets draft Lawrence or should they trade that coveted top pick? Yeah. They need to trade that pick man I'm not even coming out here in hot takes central telling y'all. One get rid of your coach that help but to Sam Darnold like Sam darnold enough to keep him in his situation look in the NFL you don't need a savior, you need a stabiliser. So let's compare where Sam Darnold is right now in his young career to goat in terms of Tom. Brady let me give you something that blew my mind even though I played against young Tom Brady I knew he good to on the verge of being great he wasn't amazing guys. Let's look at Tom Brady when he was a three time champion. Already, this is first three seasons versus Sam Darnold. Okay. Completion percentage around the same even though Sam get it above the Mendoza line but still passing yards for tip O. Sam Darnold got Tom Brady right there. Passer rating in the same neighborhood but certainly less passing touchdowns per game pretty much there. What Tom Brady and passing yards per game. Oh, he actually beats Tom. Brady. So why do I bring up the goat and then bring up Sam Darnold? Let's talk about that Tom Brady was at three time champion who never through over twenty eight touchdowns and never had a rating over ninety two Emmanuel. Acho would I do? What a ninety, two rate and right now we'll put you in the NFL today twenty, four rate right under Philip rivers but Tom Brady had one two three super bowls because they dressed up the team around him. They had a defense they had special teams and they didn't have a savior. They had a stabiliser when you talk about Tom. Brady. So let's talk about what they need to do in New York because New York is funny Sam Darnold is one in eight and gangs where they give up twenty six points or more but he six three games when you give twenty five points or fewer man. Oh Always do is give Sam darnold the adequate pieces around him and stop trading top talent, and maybe you can see Sam Darnold go out there and blossom I. think that's the role of the dice going after Trevor Lawrence. No way no way. Listen you you you. You take the pick and you take the best player and the draft with that big and that's Trevor Lawrence hands down it may be debatable. Justin fields may make a serious case, but we're focusing in on on Lawrence right now the the bottom line is I, think this is more of a debate based upon if Trevor Lawrence will leverage how Big His brand is and how beloved he is to not want to go to the jets with this pick and that would be the catalyst. Awada jets would wanNA trade the BIC but we all know that the draft is based in geared upon the control of improving teens by having the decision or or having the power to decide who they want to bring into their. into their team and into the organization. If I'M TREVOR LAWRENCE I don't want to go to the jet abandon jets. I WANNA get Trevor Lawrence because trouble lords is a generational talent that could possibly transport your team. If he doesn't WanNa come there then you cross the bridge once you get there, but you do not allow him saying he may stay for his senior year to dictate to you what you do with that. I Man I disagree with you Lavar I gotta Rockwood Big Bro Sale on this one here is why I think the easier the lazy your narrative, the Lazier takes obviously you draft Trevor Lawrence Generational. Talent, you're not wrong trevor Lawrence Generational talent, but the problem we have in society and football is we're always intrigued by mystery. We lied picks because for whatever that next pick might be the next gale sayers it might be the next Tom Brady. What if this the next bust not saying that's what trump is going to be, but there's a reason why on the price is right they always pick what's behind door number one instead of taking the car does right in front of them because work intrigue by ambiguity here's my problem of our. Let's put it in real world experience. Andrew luck and luckily phenomenal. But he went to a dysfunctional organizational at the time as far as talent. Andrew. Luck in a seven year career. What did he have to show for it? He had to show for one. AFC Championship and he had to show for it. What four pro bowls and a seven year career that's still phenomenal. But let's talk about the other fee non pick which was Robert Griffin Robert Griffin, the rams traded and received three first round picks from Washington for Robert Griffin Robert Given. I believe he was rookie of the year that first year beating out I think the likes of like if I'm not mistaken that's griffin they went to the playoffs early on in his career. But by two thousand, seventeen Robert Griffin was out of football by two thousand eighteen, that same rams team was in the Super Bowl now I'm not gonNA say Trevor Lawrence's Robert Griffin. It's hard to truly evaluate college players. You never know the differences in their mind and their physicality how it's going to translate to the NFL game. What I am going to say is this the learner of that first round pick? Oh my gosh. What Trevor Lawrence can be. We'll get the jets probably more pieces than what trevor. Lawrence. Without help we'll be able to do for the jets. That's why I really think if you take time and pause and reflect trading pick and getting what you can is a better decision. But again I think that that's one hundred percent of the time how we view top traffic. Is that they're going to be that that game changer for your team to to address what you guys are saying you use Tom Brady as an example for his third I three years playing in the first three you know active gang. Plank. It's not comparable. The franchise and Foxborough was already Stabili drew bledsoe was the starting quarterback of that team that was a stable team they they were actually a competitive team while drew bledsoe was the starting quarterback Tom Brady hat no pressure on him whatsoever coming in and doing those numbers that he was able to get because of how late he was drafted in my draft. So when you compare the two of them, you're not trevor. Lawrence isn't walking into a situation like Tom Brady where he gets the learn and he gets the benefit of being around not only leadership on the opposite side of the ball, but he had a whole lot of leadership on. The defense sap probably more. So on defense Saturday ball and understanding what they're trying to do too over there. Trevor Laurence's walking into a turbulent situation. If he goes to the New York jets, this is not a stabilized organization. Sam Darnold is suffering due to the fact that the organization is not in a position to be a successful organization right now, and I think that that is the biggest determining factor of all of the the conversations that are blocking us around what Trevor Lawrence can do. Robert Griffen third did an excellent job of lifting a an organization that is compatible in the sense of not being a functional at a high level, but we saw how. Long that lasted right. So we'll look at at Andrew luck same thing. So to me I think that's you know obviously, we know that Trevor Lawrence walking into a very, very difficult situation. But if I'm the New York jets, I still gotta play my hand and take him with that number one pig even if that means him away to get more out of it, here's where I'm out though La because I like a lot of what you said but here's my conclusion very simple. A quarterback great is he may be cannot overcome the rest of the team if the rest of the team doesn't give him help what do I mean? Joe Borough has been. balling ball and he threw for four hundred yards last week alone they still lost to the browns fallen as he may be and the browns are playing well, no sight to them but he for four hundred yards let's talk about Justin Herbert. He's been balling people are comparing Dustin in Herbert two Trevor Lawrence a little bit more athletic but not as good as an arm. He's playing great as a rookie quarterback play. He got one win on his own I think the charges have to Joe Borough I. Think the Bengals only have to win the not mistake. They may just have one but I think to what? My point is very simple a rookie quarterback as. They may be they still need some help to get the job done. Even if the jets get Trevor Lawrence, that's not going to solve the rest of their issues whereas the rest of those picks they could get four Trevor Lawrence might solve the issues. Yeah. Man This whole conversation about like, oh, he's going to be the top pick and he's insane talent and a can't Miss Prospect yes. Yes. Yes but franchise. Has the number one overall pick for every what Aikman, Elway Marino you talk about. There's also the Sam Bradford are jamarcus Russell is that Tim couches did Matthew Stafford saved the lion. So in that situation is the role of the dice that to me. I don't WanNa get back on the Carousel of quarterbacks I'd rather have a stabiliser at quarterback as someone we can grow with but dress him up appropriately like brady was dressed up in that situation, you keep talking about the franchise that the Patriots were different than the jets. 'cause they were in the super bowl four, five years before Tom Brady got there and they had one hundred million dollar quarterback and drew bledsoe. But I think the demise of the jets a little exaggerated maybe because they're in New York City and we're hypercritical of them because they're in New York City in the last ten years the jets have. Well, the last ten years the Jessica had eleven win season ten, win season couple eighty six and a seven win season. So half of them are either above five hundred right at it. So the other half are bad but the point is if you. Can't Miss Prospect then you shouldn't be running from that. My last point he as standoff he lied let me tell you when I was on campus lowly Marcellus. School you. Just. Coming at me left the right and that was just me now I decided to one but they give you some advice and you know what they're giving him. Advice to I'm not saying individual ages and I say do anything wrong. But somebody's giving them advice to create leverage just just like. In Life. You want option you who the options you can sit there and dictate terms all trevor Lawrence doing his right. Now, making sure he has wider bandwidth to control what he wants to control, which is the future that he's played. So well to attain coming up the dodgers on world series chance for the first time since nineteen eighty. Six Bush joins us to break. Necks before yes Series. Here's a plan to play throw home to dodgers lead. Here's the Oh to Tibet. All left. Center. Get the. Smoke Gate with a blast into. Left Center. Bales. Who you are remember this. All twenty twenty. Is Over. Can't be twenty twenty. Over the last thirty, two years, the dodgers have knocked at the door this year they kicked it in this is. LA's officially the city of champions at the dodgers entered the thirty two year title drought joining the Lakers as champions. Joining us now is former world series Champ Knicks. saw. Dog Man. Living in a good place in a good space law is on top again. But before we get to the dodgers, Swiss have to ask about the decisions that will haunt Tampa Bay fans for a lifetime raise manager Kevin cast hole in Blake's snail up one nothing in the sixth inning after giving up just to gets. Called it the worst decision he's ever seen in the world series helpless understand why Kevin cast made the move. I have no idea why? I feel like we're watching a day just like everybody was and I thought there was more chance of Mukhi bets via pinch hit for their blade. SNELL. Coming out of that game. I mean, just the way he was dominant, right? mookie. Betts has had a a much better season against right handed pitchers and he has left hand top three guys in that lineup were for six with six strikeouts led Snell was absolutely cruising pitch and one of the greatest games in world series history and we got yanked I think it just goes to show you analytics took A. Little Mutt too much in that game I think manager. You have to have a good feel for what's going on with your guys as well as the numbers but last night let's no he stays in me. No doubt about it. Okay. So the world is prosecuting Kevin cash right now as they should. But I'm going to employ you to be his attorney, defend his decision. Please try. But? He was thinking something. No. You know what? I heard his interview after the game and I understood his backing obviously the third time to the lineup lake Snell struggles being time. Right. But they've always kept the cuffs on this guy. They haven't taken them all many. Go Letting Brody's style. You let it get it right? He's a sign. Young Award winner and. You're gonNA pull him from the game and rob us all from the greatest two words you can say in sports deigned seven. swifty what you talked about Magoo Mookie Betts, and there's no star brighter in baseball right now movie won his Second World Series Ring and his first in dodger blue. So tell me with the is impossible there mookie betts already earned his three hundred, sixty, five, million dollars. In. Sounds. Good. Deal. One of those guys that he is at once in a generation tally and not only that just for the human being that he is the leader he is in the locker room the things that he can do on the field probably one of the most athletic guys we have to offer our game. So to see him come over and be the piece that puts the dodgers over the top to get them to finally hoist that trophy like you said, Marcellus thirty two years. I could not be more proud of the dodgers Buki that's in my mind has earned his money already and so just because abyss what this means the fans what this means to the organization this is amazing and Mookie. Betts loving himself, some La unloved Lebron, we got Mukhi redoing things. All I love it man there's talk about a future I bounded hall of Famer and Clayton Kershaw my neighbor but he lived on the rich side industry by. Heel to, but he arrays some of his postseason demons and finally got the world series monkey off his back whether it's a world series ring now do for Kershaw. I figured fax solidifies him as a first ballot hall of fame, right? I. Thought he was a first Bout Hall of Famer before the World Series. But now it's almost like it was a right of passage and someone with three cy youngs. No world series for some reason wasn't good enough to get into the hall Clayton. Kershaw is a tremendous human being a tremendous pitcher and you've got to remember for how? Long, he's doing this for he's the face of the franchise over there in dodger blue and for him to finally be on top of the mountain I. Think my biggest thing is watching him with his children after the game and just the overall joy that was inside a grown man absolutely makes me so happy. So for him to finally achieve the ultimate goal of being a champion, nobody can ever take that away. Nobody can take it from away from Dave Roberts either with the came into the season one of the most scrutinized managers in baseball despite winning two pennants and eighth straight division title. How does this World Series Phil for him and is he finally off the hot seat? I think it's almost impossible something that had that much success on the hot seat but no, his is ice cold. Is Hot on him when he probably in the Bahamas or a nice little vacate after winning the world series Dave Roberts is a tremendous leader and a tremendous leader in our game, we need more men like him and for him to also. That final specified bottle mar a be caught a champion. Remember he went back in two thousand and four with the Boston Red Sox. But to see him get this world series three times in four years, they had the opportunity to compete and they finally came grew third time char baby la is on fire right now dodger blue is loving it what an unbelievable ended the season man I'm telling you baseball's fun just like Brett Phillips said affidavit for. SWITZER chilled. Out. Down don't say LA's on fire. People can take. Five No we are doing as you just mentioned Otto mentioned the eighth straight division titles three or four years, and now a world series title what's going to stop the dodgers from being baseball's next dynasty? That one save money. I just don't think you have enough of it. All right thinking the guys that they have coming up and free agency Cory Seager is a free agent this year cody bellinger's in a couple of years, and both of those guys are represented by Scott Boris, and if you know anything about Scott Boris each takes his guys to free agency and. Most Times the top dollar usually went I'm just nervous. The only thing that could tear dynasty like this down is money and the ability to go other places for more money. Sometimes you have to do that I understand it. But in my mind, that's the only thing that's going to slow this franchise down is not having enough money too many good players. were. They got their rings at least now it's time to get those shining. Big It's going to be. Able to heal style. Thanks we Z. Man. Ladies and brother. So good seeing you guys, man thank you so much for having me. All Bad. Keep doing your. Baby. GimMe all of that energy from Swiss the also. undefeated pillars have a huge matchup against their rivals in Baltimore Sunday. We'll tell you which AFC north team is actually fatter. Welcome back to speak by yourself that the AFC north where the steelers will face their rivals in Baltimore on Sunday something asked to give with these teams. Ravens are five and one and lead the league in rushing yards. But on the other hand, the steelers have the number one total defense in the NFL and though the only undefeated team left in the league so more sellers. Flit hairs here who's the best team in AFC north? I'M GONNA try to Split Do, the best AFC, north, steelers and ravens the ravens the Ravens. Are the better team right now. Look. The steelers are on a different path right now and Kudos to them for certainly make at US believers in them so so fast in this season distillers trying to prove that they're really contenders while the ravens they are approved that they're trying to win it all. So their sights are set on a different course steelers that said this is going to be one of those games man the war of Attrition Games think about just these two physical teams matching each other and we're about two teams combined only one. Loss but more than that. It's a war of attrition where you talk about the steelers this is their third straight tough gang think about it Cleveland only two losses Tennessee and now the ravens. So if you look at it from knows terms despite the Pittsburgh steelers having a better record, they're not the more talented team. They don't have MVP candidate on their team this crazy that everyone's talking about Lamar Jackson ball out this year still in VP pays about a numbers and even our own Fox, bet has them fit MVP. By greater talent that team that knows how to win these type of games, but still trying to figure out how to win in the postseason. So pittsbur- prove your contender. Ravens, going out there and Nickleby champion. Okay. First of all, Marcellus. This is the steelers fourth tough game in a row. They played the eagles before nine. Hey. Back on. It's tough to split this one I think that the Ravens are incredibly the I think the steelers are legit but I think the steelers are better if we're splitting hairs, here's how I deduce it, the steelers have beat a better if not the better teams when I look at the when I look at the Ravens who they be be the browns and Texans Washington, the Bengals, the eagles who the steelers beep they beat the eagles maybe the browns maybe the Texans. But the steelers also beat the tightened I wasn't convinced about the steelers. I'll be honest I three weeks of the season steelers y'all beat nobody. They just run through the giants the Broncos the Texans Texans didn't even really have a coach coach in the midst of getting fired at the time I was still jelly me nothing but in the NFL, is not just how you win. We've talked about that a lot. It's also who you beat and the steelers when they beat the titans to me, the titans are legit the titans type of justice legitimate ravens. If you'RE GONNA, make that argument 'cause base last year. Away. When he's done last year the playoff who succeeded in. there. Okay Say That look they had a better postseason run but the law of averages and those teams playing each other. Lamar Jackson lost game have five, hundred, eight total yards, mark? Ingram was compromised. That was a weird game. I think that would play out differently going forward and that's the thing about the ravens are looking forward even though they got a handle business right now where two steelers like you even say they're trying to prove something right now as they should I believe in the steelers this is not a take two bass distillers. This is take the point out that the ravens are still a tear better number one point differential those Baltimore Ravens when they have to turn it all on, they will turn it all. But right now they realized turning all last year when it fourteen games in the regular season whether that get us. Here's my thing. Big. Bro. The steelers are more equipped to come from behind and they're just as a quick to play from infront. They're more quick to come from behind and not just as quick to play from infraction coming from behind I like Big Ben when he's behind because I like big Ben Pause I'll. I like me. I like big head when he's trailing. What is trailing? Who trailing because he actually have a better pass offense in my opinion. Oh, you got the you got the to receive free. As you. Going through television at. This. Point you go I will do that will save you right now you big band trail in a big been having elite. A Tennessee makes a kick last week. Big Ben gave up the goodies and then Big Ben doubt saved by the kicker missing to kick the take that into overtime. So what you're trying to say about being with him I, don't know what you're trying to say either you Let me get where I was say that that's a good formula they come from behind goal steelers. Here's here's what I will say good rothlisburger threw three interceptions last week. Yeah. They still win the football game they did not play near-perfect they'll beat the undefeated Tennessee Titans team what that tells me the dealers don't have to play their best ball game only. Making still beat a top three team top four team in the AFC when they're playing it not their worst but three turnovers on offense when you don't create any, that's pretty bad. So the fact that the steelers can roll out they're not be perfect and still be undefeated team told well for the steelers fans are great. Again that's why said we're letting me. But I think you gotTA. Make me pick one right now steelers. So Otto rather I would have teamed at almost lost the game almost David with three interceptions by quarterback versus the team have the number one point differential and he's really close except the candidate a game and Kansas, city is going. To Marcellus all. Almost is the biggest oxymoron in mankind and most I give you some of that but I still take the ravens and there's another guaranteed. Another bed coming up on TV would join us now here he's coming to the defense of one of us is going to be interesting especially if you heard that lasts take my. Before Yourself Doing the wrong to. Defend somebody maybe come on defense the floors almost. When I told you yesterday the clapback this dude I didn't know you was going to do it like this. Okay. I. Didn't know. You just come out here dropping see for a napalm all. You need to be you're saying to yourself well. You need to pick somebody own size. You know Marcellus Wiley Right. I told you from day one that you'd we do start it. I said that the man was a few French fries Sabah happy me calm. Live came out and tried to prove me. What He talks about the fact he brag that he rolled Tito books they mandal came out here and this day that when you first met him. He wrote the CHEETO bus. Latte. You told him. He looked like he ate the. Question Though self-esteem.

LeBron vs. Kawhi, Marcus Morris / Luka, Russell Wilson, Ja'Marr Chase, KD's tweet

"Speak for yourself presented by Hyundai Marcellus Wiley here with the man you auto starting off the week. Strong. Strong. Heard the whole dress ruling. I was GONNA. Come out to them. Good. Rather, let's start off with two guys who are looking good as well. The best in NBA bubble, the Bron James and Kawhi Leonard both lead their teams to the second round of the playoffs over the weekend. Paul Georgia Hawaii quote put us on his back and he finished the series while the Brown led the Lakers to the conference semifinals for the first time in nearly a decade. Let's take a look at the two stars in the playoffs. Lee Points and their title rebounds for the broad leaves into Cisco and shooting. So so we've been more impressive in the playoffs Lebron. I. Don't hear go abroad team just the King James and it's actually simple is whether I want to give you an opinion Marcellus or whether I want to give you a fact based on stats Lebron James I let me give an opinion. Let's go Lebron is you said not myself beat a better team easier than why again you Sir said not myself with the trail blazers. The team was. It Sir. But. Let's move past that. Let's also talk about the fact that. What Lebron did he gave you fame amount rebounds he gave you twice as many as this. And he gave you less points but he gave you the exact same amount of points per minute. Remember who I played seven minutes more than Lebron meaning over the course of those six games. I actually played an entire game more than Miron James. That's just simple stats. These are not my opinions, but the most important thing is is. The most important thing is this why Marcellus were he had to do what he did because his number two Paul George Michigan Action Anybody seemed Paul George for the first four games missing an active so I had to do that whereas Lebron. While a deal was also getting his so Lebron, gave you just as many boards gave you twice as many assists and gave you the identical amount to points per minute. There's nothing. So why did better than Lebron the brandon the same thing he just did it in less time. While you sound like you just helped my argument, which is Leonard kicking up a teammate Oh that helps a broader. Because he's been consistent number, one factor why the clippers were able to events they start making my argument would opinions or facts I don't know but I know what you are trying to do, what am I trying to trying to clean up your image right now because there's video out there treated him out boy talking blasphemy about these Lakers don't come in here to stay clear is on the floor you spill it ain't GonNa Happen fans still hate this do you can. was here witnessing the blast me. But in all seriousness, man is quiet Leonard and I will say this the inconsistency of having a number two that you can't rely on is really going to be something that you to keep an account and keep in mind when you're thinking about splitting hairs of these two guys both were tremendous please don't clip this out both were tremendous. But when you look at what Leonard did one, he didn't have a tap out game in a win. The broad had a ten point game. Go wise like if I had a tip point game I know what that looks like a win loss column for the Clippers a definite L. in part because the Paul. George, you misspoke. Paul George in the first four Games first game he bought twenty seven points. Don't do that George. I know we will. Have Clearing Games. My bad people we want to pile on but we can't what could why is quietly doing and he always does it silent Won Two championships in two finals MVP that's fat and he's kind of silence. That the G. Silent you know in Lozad Yeah I think you know here's the thing about Hawaii right now he is putting up peak Jordan performance numbers this to this line thirty, two, seven, and four over the last four games only five people NBA. History have been able to do that postseason history and Michael Jordan did it five times and ninety three finals basically what we're seeing but We're not GONNA give it credit is that this is peak level Jordan in terms of consistency in terms of every single day I'm going to show up, and even if my number two doesn't show up, I will fill in the void and still get us over the hump. Let me do something which most shows aren't gonNA. Do when you did it right and you did perfectly both of Bolt. Cutter. Be. Real. We have nothing here starting yelling so much that we get like watching a game last night and I'm like the only reason we don't give quiet ton of credit because he doesn't. So effortlessly like Hawaii makes it look so easy he gets to spots his range spots or he gets a WHO uses the size body gets a little men out the way and guess buckets he just makes it look so easy. So let's just established that. Oh, by Braley, we arguing great versus greater, but I'm talking about who was greater wanted to get Alabama's. Let me get back to. This thing about this Marcellus abroad do in the loss game he gave you twenty, three, seventeen and sixteen this. Thank you, twenty, three, seventeen sixteen and you know what we said. You know what I said you know what Shaquille O'Neal said wasn't enough. Anymore we got to see more well. The gave you a historic performance and we said that wasn't enough. Twenty, three, seventeen and sixteen we would be hailing him as the has. Jordan. The potential Jordan Jordan, lagging we would be hailing Kawai ask during think about what Lebron did. Twenty point triple double is what he's on pace for we've seen that happen twice an MBA history in a postseason Oscar Robinson. Russell. West broker both those players didn't get out the first round which Lebron. James did in five games. So what Lebron is do we? We're just so numb to more. We have Lebron. James Fatigue we have great news. Do back doors and gives you thirty, eight, twelve, an eight in game three. When my do it was still a tossup right? We weren't sure if the Blazers were done for the blazers were about to come back and still steal another game from the Laker was thirty, eight twelve and we have Lebron. Fatigue. So why is great? I'm not going to sit here and try to act like. Hawaii. Why plays defense amazing. But the reason I'm going with Lebron is because in the midst of this fatigue, I'm still in awe of his greatness to give you twenty three, seventeen, sixteen, two games later give you thirty, eight, Twelve and eight then give you another thirty point game. Then give you another thirty point game in mind you. He didn't even play in the fourth quarter of one games is hard to argue Lebron's greatness as thirty five while solving racism and inequality. Doing Lot. What are you lose? Water got to go to stay at Play I. Love the fact that you just balanced it all by saying look respect for social distancing, but we got that damn far apart in terms of appreciation. So let's bring in somebody who may appreciate my stance more than yours rick. The bluecher Fox NBA is so slick who've been more pressing playoffs, Lebron or Co.. I agree with the press that both been impressive but who has been more impressive. Leonard has been more impressive and auto. I take issue with you picking the Lebron because it is. So close that's not my problem. My problem is with your argument. Okay and you and you mentioned statistics heavily about the triple doubles. If we look at the bubble and we look at the statistics, overall, all of the offensive statistics are through the roof. Jamal Murray with his fifty point games in consecutive forty point scoring. has done something that hasn't been done and he's got individually singlehandedly has more fifty point games not mistaken that we saw like a decade plus in the playoffs overall by anybody. So it tells you that you can't go by the numbers if I wanted to go by the numbers in one of the numbers that doesn't play very well for Laurent. Is the fact that. He was also averaged five turnovers a game which takes a lot of the steam out of that difference in assists over over coli. But the big thing is is the minute you mentioned the minutes and the difference in the minutes play and yes that equates to more numbers but the reason co I played more minutes is because he had to play more minutes but. Employees weren't afflict the without him but. I think you might have just undermined yourself because you can't blame Lebron James and game four if I'm not mistaken for being so efficient through the first three quarters that you know what last quarter just. Do you feel like yes? Yes. Yes. This argument is that had to do. It s not Lebron fault that he beat you in recorder so he could take his fourth quarter off. Not, and I'm not faulting Lebron for that but you're asking me who was more impressive. So if if Kawhi has to carry more weight, I can say, Hey, you know what Laurent only have to carry three hundred pounds. Quite carried five hundred pounds because he had to carry five hundred pounds because he didn't have any other cat if you picked up the other two hundred pounds. So that's where Anthony Davis and the way he played in particular look Lebron wasn't even the leading score on his team and I know, I, always say stars get their superstars get theirs and get numbers for for for other guys. I would just take a step back and look at these two particular their performances, and for me watching both of them, there were times where the Lakers functioned. Just, fine without Lebron we're dominating without Lebron and there were very few times when Kawai was off the floor where I wasn't thinking. Okay. Are You gonNA put Quebec in. Many Obama through and sideways remember. The Lakers were dominating without Lebron when you speak up end of the third and fourth quarters after he had already beat in the blazers down to the point where the blazers didn't really have much left but it's like, let me ask you this question who did you say received your MVP on the season Lebron James Lebron James Did Lebron James and the playoffs verse Lebron James and the regular season per thirty six averaging four more points a game, every three more boards game and averaging more of an assist the game. So if Lebron who was already, your most valuable person has gone to the playoffs now slick and taking it up even a greater notch when if you look. In the regular season, brisk wind the postseason per thirty, six meeting for the ministries on the court is really giving you the same thing I'm just not convinced that the person who you said his most valuable and has gotten even better. You can now argue is not as good as why. Not, look, the numbers have gone up for everybody and the important thing for me with Kawhi in his numbers was when he got them and not just third quarter fourth quarter. But anytime, the clippers started to get a little wobbly they would go to Kurai and Co why would get bucket after bucket and it would calm the the water spor for the clippers. Here's the other part of your argument that that I'm going to push back against which is yes coming into this series we said. That the blazers were the most the best eighth seed that we had seen in quite some time and they presented the challenge that was before Zach Collins went down that was before Damian, Lillard got hurt and it was before ultimately we ultimately that we saw that the blazers inability to match up with Lebron, James was Major Problem Gary Trent junior and Carmelo Anthony simply couldn't get the job done and Anthony Davis was playing well enough that they couldn't double Lebron and get away with it. So again. I don't I'm in your camp in terms of both of them played great and I have to make a choice. But if I'm just sitting back watching what the two of them did, what I did just that night after night when they needed something he'd delivered and I look at the rest of the clippers and I can't feel the same way about any one of them they joined the party that I started. Anthony Davis in many cases was carrying the water. Yeah. Man Look, Kawhi Leonard Third In playoff scoring into bubble only behind Murray and Mitchell, and we know what they're doing in Syria going ham with neum no defense. It seems like because their numbers inflated but that's not talking about the score this talk about Co why? As you said, Slick Rick showing up when you need a most, let's start off with this Biro Dallas Stars to fourth quarter eight three run on my clippers. They dropped the lead down to six and it says. Let me come in this game Oh Bang Bang right there Danny comes in. You need another bucket, these all consecutive possessions, Joe as you can see. All right here we go. Now is this what would you go? Hit The fifteen foot it let's see boy. Yeah. I mean this is all when you know that alcamo always talking about the psychological scoreboard is starting to shift. You need a guy to come out there and carry the water s Slick Rick talked about. Letters. For his team minutes points, rebounds, assists, steals and blocks. He's in third. Why do I bring this up? because. America you need to understand how it feels to sometimes show up every day and your number two doesn't always show up and I'm dealing with that. Every. David. So A block this Playoff officer the hell do. Know seuss this man. Comparison is the deeper doing right now we're doing a lot of still because both of these guys out there balling coming up at the top of the Hour Kevin Durant is in the bubble, but he appears to be taking some shots at what is going on in Orlando. We'll break it down but I marcus more seniors taken his own shots, but they come at the expense of Luca Danni. We'll tell you if he should be suspended next for yourself. Funday. Guys Juju Smith. Schuster here, probably weird to hear me on his podcasting when you're used to see me do my on field football's a huge part of my life, but there's another thing that's a lounging. There's only one way to do it while we're me these baby I, love me undies because they're just comfortable overall I've never had newer where I can wear throughout the day and then don't even have to go change into ties to work out. I've done I shall workshops just ninety it. Makes my life simple with me on these like you can pretty much do everything to make all sorts of stuff undies, loungewear, and a best onesies and guys the stuff is sought like suffered them dog boozers baby. But saw after taking hits on all day a softening feels like actual heaven sign up for their membership as you can get undies delivered right to your door every month with all sorts of perks, site sales shipping, and seriously that I mentioned their onesies, it's like zipping up happiness. Body. Me Unease has a great offer for all guys. First Time purchasers get fifty percent off and free shipping. Go to me on need dot com slash sports. That's me on these dot com slash sports going back to speak for yourself presented by Hyundai, let's move on to the clippers who won last night but without San. Marcus. More senior was added with Luca Donges. He was objected late in the first quarter for a flagrant foul translation lucan ahead on his way to the basket. Hearing step on Lucas. Ankle on purpose backing by if y'all. Remember that. George once again by Slick Rick but Marcellus. I'm coming to you. I, answer it just time to defend your own should Marcus Morris, be suspended for the flagrant foul on Luke no shouldn't be suspended. We, know this was a reputational call if you WANNA break it down frame by frame debt do style. You will see that this was actually instigated by Luca off. Going into the whole buying complained basketball. Sorry little off. Fans and defenders body space looking at first of all the chicken wings and lean in. That's how you play Defen- not how you play offense of basketball. But in that process, we all know that there's a history. There's contention there. So we're reading this situation. I think mark is more senior moments. Oh, you WANNA play volleyball. Here you go. Now in that process did hit him in the head but that were full extension and not with negative. Dig It not negative and ten. No look at US reaction he looking at him like yes. I'm looking at you right now managed is that's how the game goes. So what we saw right here was guys going full go fans always say man I want these guys take sears to put it all on the line. You saw Luca putting it all on a live with his defend chicken wing and getting into his body space and you saw Marcus Morris respond but because of the history, the history came into play. In this moment when it shouldn't and it certainly shouldn't going forward in terms of suspension. No suspension just hey, it's called contested playoff Marcellus Marcellus Marcellus context and history always matter bro say say you cuddled up late night with just significant other and all of a sudden one thirty am you'll get a text from pizza hut talking about hey, I miss you. You might be like you know why it was just a the. Auto. Techs. Next night you lay in bed and you've got a call from Pizza Hut at three. AM Marcellus, you're guilty now. Get guilty. The different time zone known piece of High Okay Marcus Morris he's guilty because history and context matter. He's my thing broke Marcus Morris. If you WANNA hit people in head, we got a whole another sport for that. You can put on some love and you can go boxing. If you WANNA take shots we got a whole nother sport foot hat you can get yourself in the octagon and you can do things but if you WANNA play basketball Then I just say play basketball and Marcellus. Like Oh, you're saw your Nah are we hooping not like Luca's not trying to M. Street fighter if he wanted to probably would have. Path. So now look I'm a get to the whole point of question. Should Marcus Morris be suspended? I'm not so ignorant have to say he should say that's not what I'm saying twitter your but no, no no because I didn't say he should be suspended. I get. I'm out of here but but here's what I'll say slit here's what I will say if we can retroactively look at calls, challenge them and say you know what what wasn't a foul should be a foul then maybe you should be able to retroactively. Look at Games and say you know what Baby Marcus Morris did step on Lukashenko on purpose in game five or how about game one when KP got ejected wait a second. Marcus. Morris did insight that entire incident maybe things retroactively should be affected and inflicted but the NFL, they're already the NBA. They already have their point system. So mark more should not be objected, but there should probably be a heavier levy heavier suspensions heavier fines than just you know what? Now let's just check them for one game and keep it pushing. The fact that he was ejected from the game I feel as if that was plenty at particularly at that time and the meaning of this game that was plenty penalty enough to add to it doesn't seem to be the doesn't seem to be fair to me I. Actually looked at the play and look I've been covering the league for a long time. I didn't feel I. felt it deserved a flagrant one. Best. Yes. He made contact with the head. Yes. Given the technical foul and the ball, but a flagrant to seem to be a little much. As marcellus pointed out, there is history here and it's going both ways, Luca Danni and the way he plays. He's a very physical offensive player. He uses his body a lot in order to create space and to bump defenders. in-kind is going to cause defenders to play him more physical, and if you watch this replay that we've now seen about one hundred times in each case, the first hit to the head was on reaching the try to block it I hit him in the head. Okay. The second time he actually gets the ball I look at his intent and it was never I'm just going to slug Luca Danni Sich, and the same with these stepping on the back of the shoe like you're reading into intent. If I'm watching the inbound come in and I'm coming up behind him, it's possible that I step on the shoe unintentional if possible in an awesome. I'm not going to penalize. Look. This. Was My other issue with your your. Ability to have a better one now ability of the space on the floor and all of these guys having equal opportunity to step on that shoot. No Marcus Morris covered Luca dot search for the better part of this series. If there was going to be any interaction, it was going to be between those two. It was to be nobody else. took. They're shoes off weird coincidence. anyways I. Have I have an issue with something you said earlier slick because US sir. You. An marcellus nails me dollar sitting next to each other so. Both of you altogether see Marcellus texts me slick after he tweeted at music. Game don't care about the. Tweet it out after game for game five and said, wait HDTV can tell intent see slick and once sentenced you just uttered Mark Morris intent was not to hurt. Luca. But then when talking about the ankle, you wanted to utter that Marcus Morris, his intent was not to step on can we read and? I don't know. I don't know. So I'm going to put that aside. All I know is he made a play on the ball in the second instance. And that's all I can go by he actually hit the ball and then came through in and got him. So I look in the big picture I kind of agree with Marcellus. In that regard I feel as if the NBA is is adjudicating competitive fire and competition out of the game because we're so worried do you honestly so let me ask you this about either one of those incidents do you think there was a case in either case? That Luca would have been injured by what March by by Marcella. By what Marcus you're. So part of the Clippers I. Thought Yes That'll. Injure and I try not to be genuine human being Marcellus want to answer questions the ankle one I. Don't know because my problem with Marcus Morris as brought you've got caught like let's be better being better about dirty play Marcellus playing the league I played in the League played high level we all play Boston you play we all play ball. Everybody does a little shop shop. At least, be better than to sit here and take his whole shoe off like I just disrespect you for not even be being quality enough being dirty to like get away with it. So could you heard them? I don't know but I also don't want to find out like. Torn his Achilles by coming back off type Cath. What we found out I would just rather not find out than sit here and play. A game until it's too late, strong strong response right there. A tremendous deflections right here I'm sorry. America in today's social climate I can't believe that I actually work with a guy who is profiling right now in this moment like really standing. In Judgment, from such a far space between what Marcus Morris was doing his intent and what you're trying to say up here how dare you slander disguise entire character named game just because of what you think you saw at the crib, eat known some Nachos with that. I can't play a lick a basketball speaking of profiler always get picked I and two after that first game they realized. A pain paint anymore. Here's the thing I do know you can't dribble like this and then the elbow like that, and that's how Luca enter the lane, what the elbow out Marcus Morris I think show restraint saying I'm naive again, fight through your elbow on still going to swipe at the ball twice and maybe unintentionally hits them head once but we know this once you go above the shoulder obviously, they're gonNA look at that probably give you a flagrant too. But what I was also guilty of basically a case, a double jeopardy. China shot you're trying to convince them for the same crime like Oh gay before you know what you did just stepped on a shoe and nothing happened. So now what you do anything, we're GONNA Powell on this are we're going to change it just because of we didn't do anything in that moment call your foul wins, the foul and Windsor Foul we're only talking about this narrow scope of the incident and infraction you can't bring everybody's history into one specific moment. How are you mark? You're simply going to act like every occur slick please speak some knowledge into your. Words. Urge. Onto first but then I'm GonNa, ask you Lick Marcellus you're going to say every infraction should be judged in an incubated an isolated incident and you're not going to factor in the fact of weight. You know what? Maybe previous infractions are also indicator of infractions at art com, what they're telling me how it is telling you it should be coming up Russell Wilson says if the inefficient I. Plan, we don't break they set out like the NBA We'll tell you if we really believe that. Picture yourself. By Monday. Hey Guys Juju Smith Schuster here probably weird to hear me on his podcasting when you're used to see me do my thing on a field football's a huge part of my life, but there's another thing out of that's a laundry and there's only one way to do it while we're me these baby I. Love Me undies because they're just comfortable overall. I've never had a anouar where I can wear throughout the day and then don't even have to go change into ties to work out I've done I shall workouts in just mind it makes my life simple with me on these feel like you can pretty much do everything to make. All sorts of stuff undies, loungewear, and a best onesies and guys. The stuff is sought like soft Moondog boozers baby butts off after taking hits on the phone all day a softening feels like actual heaven sign up for their membership as you can get undies delivered right to your door every month with all sorts of perks set y sales, free shipping, and seriously that I mentioned, they're ones it's like zipping up happiness all over your body. Me Unease has a great offer for all of you guys. First Time purchasers get fifty percent off and free shipping. Go to me on dot com slash sports. That's me on these dot com slash sports. Box. NFL. Sunday. Is Back September thirteenth of the great slate of Early Games. Then it's the blockbuster in America's came over the weekend gradient. The new look bucks take on breeze in the saints check local listings for Games in your area or watch it on the Fox sports. We. Welcome back to speak for yourself. NBA is coming off missing three days a playoff games. Last week at the players decide to strike to protest the police shooting Jacob Blake the move raise the question with this happened NFL Russell Wilson said that the NFL had games over the weekend the seahawks would have set out to adding quote for the seahawks definitely discuss and what do we do next? How do we make the change joined now by Fox in analysts Lavar ARRINGTON starting show agreed with Russ here gentlemen I know Y'all the card players. Grown up in my house we played a game we call it and T, but I think most people call bs and is when you can tell pnt stands for not true and if. When you can tell somebody lying the Russ. BS. I got a call bs because is so easy to talk this. So easy to say, well, if we were playing, we would sit out we would miss out on a game. Now I put Russell Wilson in the same category of Lebron James Regardless of what they do on the court. They will always be better human beings in my eyes for what they've done off the field or off the court. So Russell, Wilson superstar human being in my mind but I just think he lion right here he signed to himself because Marcellus Lavar when I? Looked at the goal of sitting out when I look at the goal of what the NBA Players Accomplished Russ if you were going to take off a game in the eventual, we're playing this past Friday on this previous week what will change between now and when opening season kicks off in thirteen days or really ten days on that Thursday what will change Jacob Lake will still be fighting for his life more than likely all these systemic injustices going on in the world it will still exist, and so I don't think that anything Marcellus. Lavar. Will have changed between now and the two week mark. Then it makes me beg the question. So what would you really have been sitting out for seahawks or any other NFL player if you were going to sit out now but you won't sit out in two weeks it reminds me of two months ago when everybody was posting their pictures, they little thirst traps on Instagram, but then Tuesday came around and it was blackout Tuesday and you better have posted your black square on instagram on Tuesday in order to avoid being publicly ridiculed well, are you doing it? To not be publicly ridiculed are you doing it just to fall in line or are you doing it because you're actually care about the cause again? Russell Wilson phenomenal human being to me but I just call us on this dance because in the event rusher, we're going to sit out had you played this previous week then your goal still have been and should still be wait a second. We should still sit out whenever that time comes. Bait one. Oh one use your words against them and Go. Go Go my initial point was the same I initial stance was. What's going to effectively change in terms of what the scoreboard looks like as you're measuring what changes? From, now in two weeks when NFL season starts, I will love to hear that answer because my guesswork takes place this that makes you guys look disingenuous and I don't WanNa. Make that assumption unless there's going to be backed up and be real another thing that makes me pause in this. Even, though I believe that Russell Wilson one of set out I think the would've sat out I think a lot of players in NFL would sit out. Let me make sure I make that clear because we are in that world until you talked about where everyone is going to do what is the flavor of the month? Do It is the Fatima? Going, to be real work being supported behind the scenes by some of these players, it's not gonna be a majority. We already proved at an NBA when doc were stand up there and say everybody's wearing the t shirts. Everyone has the message in. Twenty percent of you guys are registered to vote. We already know that there's going to be this bell curve and ten percent of the Gaza going to be for the cause and action and ten percents guys like man I don't even trip on all this stuff. I'm just here to ball and eighty percent are there for the swaying whatever we do we don't do it in. A world of followers looking for likes and I told you I'm GONNA leader looking for love and we're just in two different places right now where you can win optical gain, you can win the optical illusion of saying you're really down for something if you just go out there and show these measures that aren't fully supported by actions. Last point on this show, we gotta protect the. Golden. Goose. We have to protect our golden geese and climb for power and the climb for us to have more of a voice and say in this world those who have this economic base, those who are really a fluent like a Russell. Wilson. Has Player in NFL. We need to protect them instead of putting more on their plate saying that they need to solve all the. World's ills as well. There's complete touchdown passes and I think that pressure there. Russell was filling to say this is the same pressure in off season Ju- breeze comes out against capper nick and a few months later is wearing a Jacob Blake tape around his helmet. You know what that pressure makes. You do not always say exactly what you really feel into what you exactly we'll do. Russ while you lie. While you always lie tripe. Saying going Matt Look here. I'm glad you brought up Golden Egg Marcellus Wiley because talking about putting too much pressure on the Golden Goose Golden Geese. Joe You and I both notice. There are how many people that are fighting for job on a fifty three active man roster in football. Right, now it's like what sixty seventy you start with like. Number. Ninety Ninety, that's a lot of bodies. Now you answer me this one Batman Riddle me this guys. If you're. GonNa sit out that gang and and mind you. This is the for the same exact team that led a guy go cutting. Jobless unemployed for trying to sneak a lady through the front door of the hotel. You're telling me. That outside of your golden goose or geese. That somebody somebody's aren't going to be collateral damage to sitting out a game in protest. Ultimately what goal are you achieving if you lose your job and your voice and your ability to impact change and who are you as a leader if you are leading these guys down that lane so I would ask how gold is your keys or your goose or your egg if you're going to have collateral damage with guys after this takes place because. In the NBA is twelve guys in the league. It's fifty three plus that's a lot of moving parts and a lot of bodies to sit there and say, this is what we're gonNA do without a clear goal in mind the other thing y'all both bring up great points. It's so nice. We can agree especially on a Monday sometimes I like starting on days. Blood pressure just agreeing with these two intelligent gentlemen. The first thing Marcella said which I agree with this let's remember last year everybody was standing during the national anthem this year during in the NBA this year, the majority of players are kneeling during the national anthem it is mathematically impossible. Realistically impossible that every player just sway their opinion. So what that means is there are probably some imposters on both ends people doing things just to do it remember last year it wasn't cool to take a knee. This year is sure as heck ain't called if you stand. So I don't really care about doing something just to do it do it because you actually have internal convictions and you want to do one right. Now, bars point. There's some truth to that. Remember in the NBA your leaders beacons of light the people that draw that move the needle Lebron James. He got your winters you got your Anthony Davis to Gotcha Yana says all people that are well, how do we say black and the NFL you've got your Tom Brady's you got your drew brees is you got your Philip rivers got your Aaron Rodgers is how do we say this these guys these guys are white and so even if you Russell Wilson wanted to say you know what I'm GonNa sit. This one out. Well, let's drew brees about to do because in the NBA The reason it was so strong it was collective in the NFL Eto matter if you WanNa, sit what's the other guy going to Alan Kamera's holding out he could see but if drew brees plays, the show will go on Aaron Jones packers running back he can sit. But if Aaron Rodgers plays the show will go on Philip rivers plays the show will go on Tom Brady it Mike Kevin's can sit but if Brady plays the show will go off Lebron James if he sits Music stops. So that's the difference between the. NBA. And the NFL as a whole, which is why again it sounds good and talk rust but I can't wait till September tenth thirteenth or fourteenth of I am not mistaken distinguish shaking and see exactly people are going to what Marcella say and what me go say if people are gonNA, walk it like they talk or. You'll be the way talking like you walking. Merit based and then profess what you're doing look. I think we are getting to the same place and then we're reading that conclusion differently I'm saying because of all this smoke because it's not always mayor base. That's why I think that he will sit out potentially going forward and what have sat out this weekend if it were a game because people are Bass ackward. Like you gotTa let too many facts get into your conclusion. You're saying, Hey, I want to really see pro action in your life. I'm not saying that I'm saying I am watching the pressure in your life I'm watching a drew brees now saying one thing I'm not going to be as Brian. Urlacher. Even though I may have some things in the lyman, it turns the thoughts and opinions what Brian Urlacher so because you`re Asking these guys not to show their true colors. But to fall in line with the public pressure, you are now going to see guys who may protest even though they don't know where to protest is going to take them or take the group or effectively make change. So I'm not even having a conversation on. Is it authentic man when instagram hit like hit hit Authenticity is out the door brother is just about, hey, I don't want to be one of the guys who seems like he's on the outside. My favorite group is outcast and it's amazing how they embrace being different. But now if you are different, it seems like it or not a lot of people there embrace you and I think, Russell Wilson's kind of talking to that crowd and running away from that this you know what it makes me think of it makes me feel as though where we're at right out instead of getting caught up and on one or two ways of approaching this. Expand. Your horizons. Guys like Russ. If you WANNA really make change everybody, the whole funding situation is taking place in that debate he talked about how he fears for his kids and what they're going to have to deal with why not organize a committee and get all of the guys on your team and steady sitting out, continue to play and keep your voices strong your brand strong. So people listen. Keep the game strong so that people will watch pay attention and put money towards better training for officers when they're in training, like let's let's Health Annette let's let's put more money into our schools. You know it's going into the fall. You know there are a lot of schools that have leaky roofs, ceilings, they have no he they've had no air conditioning they don't have books they don't have a electroncs I'm not trying to put anybody on French street. But what I'm saying is let's be created. I'm someone who lives in the trenches every single day I'm giving money to poor scholarship. I'm giving grant money I'm bang for book just and materials me and my family we take people into. Our home and and so for me when I look at Real Change, it's nice to talk about doing protesting and Oh, we're going to sit out gang. But really in reality you want to get people on your side. You WanNa drew brees on your side which just gay ungodly amount of money for for relief efforts in. Oh, you have Aaron Rodgers and people who stand up for so many different things moral compass wise why not organize and do things that way? Let's start having that conversation because I feel like with everything that's being said, well, rest it. It's like we're on a hamster wheel right now and to me it kind of gets a little bit like we said a tab disingenuous. Brother coming up college football will be without one of their best players.

Going to you I I need to know we'll damore chases decision create a domino effect in college football no, it won't create a domino effect just because everybody won't be in this same luxury position that Marchetto played himself into. This guy's a top five, top ten at worst. So you talked about that coming off a perfect season with a quarterback who won the heisman who had a perfect season where's the upside and even playing this year and it's interesting. If you look at his stats, obviously tremendous twenty, thousand, eighty, four catches was out there ball and seventeen hundred, eighty yards but father is interesting Jimmy Jimmy Chase. WHO said his son was locked in and this was just an August like early August this month. Instead he was like me in to play this year despite the pandemic and everything and then somebody wants to data. Say Excuse me, sir. What is your Song GonNa play four going forward. If you know a football player, you know that we all have an odometer. Dominant how many miles we could take how many hits we could take? How many catches a really in that body and I think this makes the most sense for a guy who's done all he can to improve stop to get drafted into get paid for the same thing he loves doing. So this the smart choice and most players are not in his position including I wasn't in the same position. So. Most players won't make the same made the same decision I think actually, this will have huge ramifications for the future of college football but here's why coalpit his everyone a lot across every industry. I just got here two months ago. But to my knowledge, the production meeting we used to host in the morning was in person well, now we realize white second, you can host it on the phone there are A. Lot Of companies across the nation they realized wait a second. We don't need to have a brick and mortar where people can come into. You can just work from home and still be as efficient I. Think Football Players College football players are going to learn a lot to wait a sec it after March. Hey, still goes in the top ten and he doesn't play his last year of necessary mandated eligibility wait. A second. You have quarterback Justin feels at Ohio State doesn't play his last year of mandated eligibility and still goes in the top ten. Wait a second if I can sit out my final year and still going the top ten than I have very minimal to gain by going back to college and a whole lot to lose I. think this will have a huge collateral effect on how we view college football. What I love about the so I can keep it real which all because y'all keep it real with me. A lot of players NFL, and collegiately, they're opting out not necessarily because what I'll read them headlines. Oh I want to stay with my family more I want to spend more time with this and that no, they're opting out because they can without getting backlash from the media and from fans after more tastes were to do this during the regular. Season you want to know what the blogs for lsu would say he's selfish. How dare he opt out after he wins all these awards? How could he quit on his team? The same team that didn't quit on him? Now because a covert NFL players in college players including Damore chase they can hide behind the fact of why don't WanNa play for safety reasons maybe that's true. Maybe that's not but it gives them the opportunity to do what they really wanted to do, but they couldn't because of backlash I think if we see tomorrow and other guys have successful transitions doing this, then I definitely think going forward we're going to see a lot more of it. It's almost like it's a great argument but you Kinda of contradict yourself because I, agree with you Acho. But I disagree in the sense that moving forward that they're still able to leverage it the same exact way I mean if you think about it, they can hide behind cove it so to answer the question. Does it do for the stars and affect them this year I would say which isn't ended question but this year I think it will get people thinking about a- As to whether they want to opt out or play if during one of the leagues that are still playing I, mean you look at Jomar and thing you didn't mention is he led the country and and receiving yards last year he won to Bolivia copy was considered the best receiver in the land by the by the award so. You lose your heisman trophy throwing quarterback. I think that this is a smart decision by by Jomar because ultimately do you risk the situation where you could have a bad season with a new quarterback? That's why I left early I left my junior year Courtney Browne who ended up going number one in the draft branded short who was amazing we had David Macklin on that team we had three or four dudes that played in the National Football League for years on defense that we're leaving I wasn't coming back to so anybody that I wasn't as good as they. Thought I was not year where do get blocked by four five dudes and I only have one guy to deal with which was running back on staff. Hey, luck of the draw Lavar I wasn't planning that senior year one gonNA. Do It can't give me to do it I don't think that this will become a trend because a Kobe and moving forward. If a star decide to opt out of a season, he will be based on that. He will be judged and weighed on that and it could have a bad impact on way builds its end result will be. We gotta remember to incentives shape behaviour. I don't give a damn what the conditions I don't care. We're going through a pandemic epidemic whatever you WANNA call it. These guys are making these decisions based on the incentives. Now, everyone's in his luxurious position is dramatic chase. So now everybody's going even think to make this same decision. A conversation for another day is how always say there's unconditional love for the game of football I tried to tell you that no one chooses football football chooses you and when you realize you've been chosen, you start to say how much one way do I have, and in the world where we're looking at a guy who says I know there's hail to pay every single time. I. Cross those white lines why not get paid? Why not be in a position where you can some something comes back to you as head of you always had to give a chunk of flesh just for the sport he's in a different position than I was then I to- was maybe not to Lavar and Nassau point coming up in our big story Kevin Durant is not into bubble but that doesn't mean he can't tweet. We'll break you down K D's latest social media last. To speak for yourself Marcellus Wiley here manual art show. Dog. Top of the hour here for big story presented by. Hyundai. Let's head back to the NBA. Players were back in full swing over the weekend after missing three days of games while players were on strike in response to the police shooting of Jacob Blake one player who is not in a bubble Kevin Durant whose notoriously not shy about using social media. Katie appeared to call people out over the weekend tweeting quote. Are you doing this work to facilitate growth or to become famous off your thoughts on Katie's posts man and I I was going to be extremely upset Marcellus I'm over here breaking down and Katie. tweet. D.. One. Of the most incredible basketball players of this generation but also one of the most emotional tweezers of this generation. But then I thought about and I said, Tang I gotta tell them myself Marcellus. I drafted a cryptic tweet of my own the differences I kept it in my draft on twitter I thin on August nineteenth say people get the notoriety and they forget the cost it was a heart I was like Dang. We got a lot of people out here who were moving for something moving publicly, and then they got a little bit of praise and they forgot what? The heck they were doing it for. So I feel UK genuinely do putting it out. There are doing it to fulfil take growth or become famous. Maybe he's honest something because I do think there are several again imposters I think there are several people who said you posted your Bikini Picture on Monday your Blackout Square for blackout Tuesday on Instagram then you got back to your swimsuit picture shirtless on Wednesday and I think there are a lot of people who were just doing it to check a box and say they did but then I had to kick back Marcellus s myself. Doesn't matter the motivation as long as it gets done. Unfortunately. I have to ask myself that and kind of came to the conclusion. K. D., what do you play basketball for you play for the love of the game you play to be the greatest ever do you play for the fame? Do you play for the women? Do you play for the accolades doesn't matter as long as you play at a high level? So honestly when I look at this Katie quote as much as I, want to dissect it and twist it and bend it and really get into the nucleus of what does he mean? Really doesn't matter what you're doing it for our the owners, Marcellus are they allowing their arenas to become polling places because they really loved the cause and they really love their players or man I need to get back out there so we'll do whatever the heck you tell me I don't know if we care not an we care I. don't know if the motivation matters Marcellus as long as the action occurs you know it's interesting just to respond from off notes off the cuff I think. The motivation comes into play for so many people as we know ourselves, the most is because the motivation really becomes your foundation like what all things are considered and you take all the hits. If you weren't motivated properly, you fold because you weren't motivated for dig about how famous a drug and a lot of people talk about that. Not a lot of people have experienced it. So you can be all in one course and then feign hits you and then it takes you off course and. Is asking is, are you guys off course because if you're of course, you don't know where you're going. So all of these measures will be hollow in totality if you don't know where you're going and you're not doing with the proper intention, which is the deep analysis for a single line tweet. That's what I love. Man How Katie Katie's giving advice and Katie also has another tweet that I have to get out here, which is, which is more important question mark getting or letting go. That's his other tweet. Now, let's let's couple and combine these two. Vice Katie is trying to give advice. Is something that you already know. Somebody got to tell you and Katie, is like, let me tell you something right here because he's talking to you and I'm not talking about you singular you plural y'all if I will. Katie saying when the noise silence is, what's going to be left of everything you're doing because what we're doing is forgetting with this conversation really is about and this entire world into study of mankind in the study of all civilizations, there's one underlining common denominator with all of those situations that the haves and have nots the quest for power, and then from that quest of power create story because. Those with power have a store in those without power certainly tell the story and that story covers the spectrum from prosperity to despair and that also all of a sudden fragments into conversations that leads to the story that comforts you that motivates you that excites you and what those stories are come down and cost rooks like religion what those stories are come downs, contracts, racism, sexism, classism, color, all the. But if you look in studied this world, it's amazing. How all of this is really just a question of power not just money because I think a lot of times people here money and they turn away their hair's race I. Remember hearing the comment discontent for money is just a trick of the rich to keep the poor without it and I. Know I grew up with that discontent for money. Now I'm doing it for something deeper. And then you start to realize as you grow in this world that the deepest thing that you're doing something for is to not only help you and yours. But help all but has something to hand off and I think K. D. is trying to say in a cryptic ways. Are Y'all doing something that's going to be not only beneficial to you and yours to the cost but something that's going to translate because we are now watching the poaching of the Golden Goose, we're watching guys who have worked their entire life to get to a place where they could actually offer themselves to the conversation of. Power. And now they're getting net close to that conversation and they're starting to get into another lane. They don't have enough experience and enough levity to bring it into brigade took rick the Bukar for this one slick rick, what are your thoughts on Kevin Durant Post I'm still trying to figure out why and what the purpose of the post was. My first thoughts were. So whose motives? Are He is he questioning and why is he questioning them because clearly he's questioning somebody's motives and I went to read the comments and a lot of the people reading this didn't take it as a question about the NBA players modems that are playing in the bubble, but their own motives in terms of. Why are you doing what you're doing? Are you doing it to facilitate growth or you're doing it for your personal gain and the problem that I have with this and you just mentioned Marcellus and you touched on it? Is that first and foremost it? It doesn't matter. Who He's accusing or whose motives he's questioning. I don't care like Katie. You're not playing right now, and if this is supposed to be contributing somehow to the positive to the growth, your accusation or question about motives, how is it contributing to that? If it is about the players who are playing right now, the fact of the matter is they are doing what they they they are. They are doing what they have been hired to do. You. Are Not you are on the sidelines so whatever it is that you have to say about what they're doing Yay or nay. I don't. The reason that I'm aware of you Kevin Durant the reason than anybody would follow you. Is because you are a basketball player because you're a social social activists, not because you're gossip Ann Landers dating myself here you're social. You're gossip columnist who who provides advice to people. It's because you play the game. And when you're not playing the game, then I'm sorry your voice and the significance of what you're saying. Does. Not Carry the same weight for me and that's not to say that opinion isn't meaningful. But I feel as if we've gotten into this place now and you mentioned it Marcel Marceau, there's pressure now to be more than one thing and I'm of Russell Westbrook of posted something on on instagram about serving my community is. Taking is is that's all that matters that's the most important thing. Well I just wonder are have players lost sight of the fact that we are recognizing them. We're aware of them. Because they're professional athletes and care about them because of the way they played the game and if you WanNa do that and you WanNa have some other pursuit and you want to pursue social activism and you want to utilize I'm all for that. But don't mistake that there are two parts to this and that I don't know that you can disconnect the to. I became aware of Kevin Durant I got to know Kevin Durant because he's a basketball player if you take that away Now I've got a reset. Okay. Now it's not a matter of will I cared about him as a basketball player. So now I care about everything it's OK. Now he's he's this other thing. Is he the guy that I want to follow and listen to and is the best? Figure for me in terms of going this other direction, you're asking a complete change of direction for me on that and It. Those people out there that are uncomfortable with that I. Guess I understand that I look is there a problem in this country for sure there's a problem in this country my question whether it's with Kevin Durant or it's the players in the bubble is how do we best deal with an attack it and try to all look to your point you bring up that word is solve what I cannot stand utterly despise and life on twitter in anything in general don't bring problems unless you're going to bring up solutions don't sit here and say I can't stand this or I can't. Stand that if you don't have a solution for me now, what do understand though to a degree remember K D's close friend Kyrie irving before the bubble began again Kyrie was like look y'all go back and play. You're just going to be a distraction from the 'CAUSE Kyrie if we're being honest he called this shot of long time ago several months ago before this all started and now looking back Kyri wasn't fact right the NBA has been an escape but has it been necessary escape when there has been more necessary issues at hand maybe Katie is sitting here saying look now. We knew what was going to happen y'all knew exactly what was going to happen, which is the NBA does fall second in line to social justice to live on being jeopardised, based on the color of skin and yet now all of a sudden now that it is it is in now that it is popular to take the stand. Now, you don't want to take the stand while Kyrie, already told you. So maybe there's some truth to maybe Katie speaking from a place of. What we already knew, what was going to happen? We knew this was going to happen. We call this shot y'all ignore this shot, and now that it is quote unquote in everybody is raising their voice everybody's making statements. That's where he could be coming from. But I do agree with you slick my biggest thing don't sit here in in present problems k. d. unless you're also going to present solution because there is still work being done and this is not contributing to the work. The beauty of cryptic tweet. The beauty of what Kevin Durant is did through that rock out there and hit them hands is he can deny whatever we're going to say about it and he can accept what he wants to or you can just sit there and say nothing you're reading too much into it. There's art to what he just did here and I'm not going to let that get by me with. That said, I think Kevin Durant is really saying my opinion is how a lot of times we have to unlearn a lot of our behaviors in our mindsets and focus or in many cases refocus on the task at hand because the real question is, is this really for change or is this for clout and Kevin? Durant doesn't WANNA say the names he want
