"When you are and I say this because most guys don't grow up a fan of the game. The mom or the dad or the uncle or brother made him play, but you know, I'm a football junkie. And I love the game. And you know, I've told the story many a times, the only way I could get to see the game was being a vendor, selling popcorn and Superdome, and that's the only way I could watch the games. And when you do stuff like that, you know, it's like, I'm finding ways to get into the games to watch the games. And then lo and behold, I am now the entertainment in that game. And then the guys that I was doing that to watch are friends of mine, and those guys that are in the Hall of Fame and I looked up to, you know, I tell Ricky Jackson all the time. You know, like just the relationship of for him the consider me a friend and idolize like what those guys Sam mills Bond Johnson like those guys playing to have a Jerry Rice, me watching him or Dion or Michael.

"Couldn't afford to go. I couldn't afford to go back home. I had the pressure was I had to make it in a sense. It wasn't for my family. It was for me. Because what was the alternative? You didn't have one. I didn't have one. Literally, even if I was like, I'm going to go home. I couldn't. I couldn't afford to. I love talking to you about how you see a football field. I don't think everybody gets to understand that. So as your play developed, what was it like for you and can you walk us through? The game was kind of like the game. You have the game has kind of in slow motion to me. I was fortunate enough to be taught the game of football at a young age. And you know, I wasn't just, I wasn't the kid just running with the ball. Just running just to run. I ran and, you know, I've had these conversations with rich many at times. The connectivity of my eyes and my feet. And you know, it's like, I had to see it for my feet to take me there, you know? People always say, your feet can't take you anywhere your eyes don't see. And you have to be able to see it. In order to get there. And so I studied the game. I studied other running backs. I studied just tendencies and everything about the game because I love football. And so the game moves very slow for me, the chess match, I figure it out pretty early. And sometimes sometimes I can remember forcing myself to play the game instead of think the game too much. Because you can overthink the game sometimes. But for me, I was always able to get out of my way and still play it and not overthink it, but yet be mindful of everything that was going on around me. And plus so many running backs just hate getting hit so much. You'll see that to me one time you're like, it hurts. It does, it does, it, the idea, I remember. I think it was gene healey. He asked me, why do you run out of battle? I was like, 'cause I don't want to get hit. If I can gain yards and run out of bounds and they can't hit me, do you understand how mad they are? Somebody's going to bull an assignment because they want to hit me. And I'm not going to take hits that I don't need to take. How cheeky were you when you played? Oh my God. I was a nice guy, so I was a nice guy. I didn't smack talk. I didn't, I was nice to my opponents. Really? Did that piss them off more or were you really a come on? No, no. I only got into it with like two people, I remember the first time I played the Chargers and I went back to San Diego and I was playing in the stadium because we shared the stadium with the Chargers and I was like talking smack like this is my house and junior say I wasn't having it. Junior said I wasn't having it. So he and I we're good friends. We kick it during the off season and we train to an off season, but he wasn't having it. So he and I, we got into a little Chevy match and then oh man, who's the other guy? I can't think his name. Me and we would get into it all the time. All the time. Every time we played him because he was, he was always like taking shots at people's knees. And I just couldn't stand that. But other than that, I killed him with kindness like literally. Hey, thank you. I appreciate you letting me get by you like this, hey, it's okay. Don't worry. I do that to everybody. It's fine. Don't take it hard on yourself. So that's like smack talk two. I'm sorry I got past you. I do that to everybody. That is nasty. That is nasty, cold stuff. These are true. This is the truth. This is the truth. Truth hurts, doesn't it? Yeah. Right, but I wanted him to know, like, you're not the original one. I've done this to many of people. But again, that's nasty. I love that. That's like some next level, dark, twisty psychological stuff. 'cause you know why it's that, it's very Leslie vista always says that if you're swearing, it's because you're too lazy to think of a better word. And the truth is that it's a version of that because you're killing them with kindness. So they're like saying, thank you. Wait a minute. Wait a minute, where'd you go? Then they realized the second later what you said to them and they're like, that's cold. Yep. I'm just telling them the truth. I had to have felt so amazing to feel that good about your play and about who you were as a player. Yeah, I remember I remember as I got older and I wasn't as effective how I didn't feel the same about playing the game. You want to be effective and being out there and not being effective after you've done it for so long and you've done it a certain way. It wasn't as fun. I always, I used to always tell my coach, he would say, hey, this guy, I was like, I'm not worried about the first guy. He won't touch me. It's the next guy I'm worried about. And when I was not able to do that, it was just different. It was different. That's literally when I knew I had to retire. I remember my last year, it was like, I made a move guy shoestring tackle me. I made a move. I barely got by, but he tackled me. I was like, oh man, I almost got him. And then I started to look at the film, and I was like, I lost it. Yeah. I was like, I lost. How hard was that, Marshall? No, you know it's coming. You know it's coming. You know what? But the reality is you accept it. And I accepted it. I got it. Listen, I remember being second third year playing against ten year vets and they were like, and I was like, oh, you're going to have a long day to day. I remember being that guy. And it's the way the game goes..

"Hey guys, thrilled to be back with you on this edition of just getting started. I am so happy to have my dear friend, my work husband, the guy that I depend on when rich is not around Marshall faulk joining us here on the podcast and Marshall's also chomping on potato chips and he looks like the CIA is keeping him sound weird like sleeper still. I'm in the black site. You do. You look like you're like George Clooney from syriana and you're about to go and throw down with some terrorists. What's going on, Marshall? Where are you? Nothing, man. I'm in a little cave, you know, I'm on a little retreat. Playing some golf, getting a little R and R, you know? Much needed, much needed. I work hard, too. So I deserve to treat myself. I deserve to run away from my kids and hide. Can I come? Can I come? I have to, I have to wrap this up and get back to little league. I dropped my kid like unattended a little league practice. Let's just hope that he doesn't like, you know, swing around and crack himself in the head right now because I'm not there because I'm talking to you. I want to come. I want to go play some golf with you. What's your handicap these days? I can't tell them. I can't just lose that. Come on. I can't. For gambling purposes only. I can not disclose that. I mean, it's just people to me Marshall. It's just you and me. No one's no, it's not. No, it's not. I have a problem with golf. I don't like people watching me, so I'm always like, all right, turn around. And then it's the pressure of standing over the tea. And I'm like, okay, I'm ready, I'm ready. I get there and I'm like, okay, just look away. Is that wrong? No, that's the beauty of it. When you become better, that's all you do is you want people to see. Golf is literally a show off sport. You're by yourself. It's you and the ball. And you want people to marvel over how close your head into the hole, when you make the putt, how far you can hit the ball. And in reality, things always go wrong. And then why do so many people look so insane playing golf if it's a look at me, some of the guys out there, some of the pros, beer guts, I mean, let's face it like you want to look at me, maybe take a lap. You know what? It's changed that used to be like the dynamic of golf. But if you look at a lot of the younger guys, from Tiger on down, like athletes are playing golf now, like there's so many athletes. And this is case in point, Jared Schmidt, basketball player, NBA basketball player, goes and plays college golf. It is. But, you know, ever since I took up this sport, it has been something that it grabbed me and I became addicted to the imperfection of searching for perfection. You know, you can never, ever get it right. And then when you get it right, you always start thinking about how better you could have gotten it. It's crazy. That sounds like the title of a book, the imperfection of searching for perfection. Like, what is it exactly about golf that you think is so fascinating? Talk to me about how somebody who's played in the National Football League at the very highest level restarts a secondary leaven golf. Yeah. You know, I actually started playing when I was while I was in the league. And what I always tell people about golfers, go facts actually made me a better athlete. It made me a better professional for the simple fact that it taught me how to accept when things go wrong, that it didn't mean if you fumbled a ball as a running back. It didn't mean you were a fumbler. It happened at one time. Like, bad golfer. I mean, good golfers. Great golfers hit bad shots. But you get back into your routine and you swing away with the confidence that that's not going to happen again. I think that's a, I don't think unless you play golf, you didn't understand in ten cup when Kevin Costner, he kept dropping the ball and hitting another one, dropping the ball and hitting another one. It's because you have to believe in yourself that you can get it done. And I don't care if you hit every ball in the water, it's just about, I knew I could do it. I did it. Who taught you how to play golf? Well, first, it was a guy named Brad Mays when I lived in Indianapolis. I lived across the street from eagle creek golf course and this guy named Brad Mays, and this was the best thing. I was at a golf tournament. I actually Eric Dickerson's golf tournament. Tommy armored a third bet me a $100. He's like, you just won rookie of the year. I bet you can't hit this golf ball soon. Couldn't get it off the ground. And that's the bad feeling. I thought golf was a wimpy sport. You know, I thought it was for like nerds. I'm a be honest, but I was like, oh my God. Who plays golf? And once I understood and I got into it, I took lessons, Brad literally took me on the range for like months before he would allow me to play. And then I went out and I played, I was like,.

"How did you get recruited by San Diego state then if your team was hot garbage? Team was hot garbage. The recruiter who came to see we were playing our arrival and they had to receiver a guy named ray Peterson who was like blue chip guy really good receiver and I played corner and came to see him. And at our game, when we played them, I had like a game of two interceptions, took one back for a touchdown through pub touchdown, Rushford typed down, caught blood touched down, and he just was like, he went back to his like, hey, Curtis Johnson. He went back to the head coach and was like, you look, ray Peterson is good. And we can recruit him. But we have to take a look at this guy. And so I took a trip, it was like I wanted to go to California, I was like, I got a chance to go to California. Didn't want to go to Cal, none of the schools up north because I went to play football in warm weather. I don't know why people go to school, go to college somewhere where it's cold. It makes no sense to me. Or play football in college. Everybody else says to me, if you don't have to. It's great. It's great. That's the woman who lives in Los Angeles. Says the woman who lives in Los Angeles. I'm sorry, let me just turn down the 80° outside, right? I'm like, who am I kidding? Gary, can you go and find? Don't call my ass out. This is my podcast damn it. Oh man. So at the time, you know, the gang stuff and like the Rodney King stuff was going on in LA. So that was a San Diego state. I was like, all right, cool. I'll take a trip here. Man, when I flew, I flew there and I went to school and I walked on campus and I was just like, wow. This is awesome. And I grew up, you grew up in the south, this black and white. It's black and white, and now you get to see this melting pot. You know, I didn't know much. I didn't know much more than, you know, my community and my neighborhood, my environment. I was in travel. And that's all I thought, I remember, and I can't remember who told me this. Somebody was like, make sure you go to college in a city that you want to live in because the connections that you make, they go far. And I was like, I want to live here. What was that? What was it? What was it that got you? Probably the diversity, you know, I had never, I had never met other than white and black. I had never met another race and never seen in San Diego is such a melting pot..

"Grew up poor. And impoverished. And I didn't realize what my mother accomplished because I was the youngest. She sent me off to college. Everybody was out of a house, and I was like, this woman is something special. I'm talking, she had my oldest brother when she was 14. Dropped out at dropped out of school and tenth grade and provided for us and taught us how to be responsible adults. You know, like having a woman raised 6 boys, that's hard. That's hard. And so when I think about my life, man, people getting killed, guns, drugs, violence, all of that was around me. But I grew up in a loving home and with a loving family and I feel like I grew up the way I should have grown up because it taught me all the values and morals that I have today. I can't even imagine how many jobs your mom juggled. Oh my God, it's I'm talking two and three jobs. Two and three jobs at times. It was unbelievable. Two and three jobs. So what was your introduction to football? How did you get into it? So when I grew up, I was not supposed to play football. My mom, my mom would not allow me to play football. And my brothers, I had to sneak and play football. And I remember when my mom heard that I was playing football, she told me this was the rule. She said, okay, you can play. But you can't get hurt, and if I'm ever at a game, I need you to never lay on the field and be hurt. If you do, and I have to come down there, I'm whipping your ass. So it wasn't bad enough that you might be hurt on the field. You were going to get a weapon if you got up too. I got a broken arm. She gone with me. So maybe that's why you were so good. They believe that's why you're so able to Dodge the tacklers because you were afraid of your arms. I was not getting hurt. As soon as I never, I never had to get carried off a field. A cart or nothing never had to come and get me ever. That never happened. Why do you think Marshall? I don't know. Well, I do know. I remember the deal that we made. I remember the deal that we made. Like, my mom literally come to games just to watch to see me get up. Like, get tackled, she'd be like, get up, get up, get up. And I remember having a conversation with her. She just, she can stand people hitting me and tackling me. Susan's one time, my mom saw Warren sapp, I think we were at the Pro Bowl. And we had just beat the bucks and I took my mom to the Pro Bowl, and my mom signed me in the elevator and he introduced, he saw me with my mom and he introduced himself and my mom, I know who you are..

"Fun. And it had me right there. I had all kinds of contraptions in my house and my garage, buying all I would buy all kinds of stuff to just to try to get better. Are there what kind of parallels are there with golf in the National Football League? I'm going to say that the only parallel that there is is they boat will humble you. In the National Football League, you can and will be humbled. I look at a Tariq keel. You know, it's like, you're having, listen, you were it and Kansas City, but when it came time to get paid, it was like, devonte Adams. Hey, you gotta go. Ryan Tannehill. He's taking him to the playoffs. And all of a sudden they dropped another quarterback. And now Ryan Tannehill is letting people know, hey, it's not my job. This sounds familiar. It's not my job to tutor this to mentor this guy. That sounded like Brett Favre, right? Why do they all say that? They sound so crazy when they say that every time. Because most quarterbacks are so sensitive to competition. They can't deal with competition. They need to know they're the only one. And that's it. They don't want competition. It's crazy though, because I was listening to Kurt Warner talk about it this week. And again, nobody in the world has giving is Kurt Warner as, I mean, talk about the homeless man in the world, but he keeps scratching his head. He's like, you should feel, you should have enough confidence in your play that it is okay. To bring someone along to have that kind of karma in the world and every time it's the bread Favre, it's the Ryan Tannehill. These guys are like, they forget that at some point somebody may or may not have helped them out, I kind of feel like someone always helps somebody out along the way. Kurt was one of the few guys and I don't think people remember this. When he was Denny green was the head coach, Kurt was in Arizona. Matt leinart wasn't ready to play. But they wanted to play Matt leinart and then when the game got in the whiny moments, they wanted to put curtain. And Kirk was like, he was coaching Matt leiner. And it came from, and I mean, I was this way too. I remember being in St. Louis with the rams and he kept drafting young running back. I'm like, oh wait, I want MVP. They drafted a running back in the first round. I'm like, I go for, I go for, I break the most yards record total yards from scrimmage..

They said you know we're one key changes spots with new coach and then they go thirteen in three and they were amazing. They draft a kid. Come on though. Marshall you know i don't disagree with you i don't disagree with you. Do not disagree with you but here. Here's what i'm saying just aaron rodgers. You were drafted late in the first round behind brett farr and guess what far did continue to play so now just doesn't fit you too and so you think part of week one had something to do with it. There's some residue i think. I i think the continuity of the team but togetherness listen we. We're we're all professionals. Some teams are better than most what. We're all professionals in you. Get at a high level where you got a green ban the saints playing early. Everybody got together and that didn't look like a together that like a team of together. Marshall faulk here on the rich eisen show pro football hall of famer. Let's talk about the rams. Bud boy was that first game for stafford. Exactly what the hype was all about. Is that where we're going to see. Think over the next seventeen weeks. I hope so man. I listened rich and i. I'm i'm on record. I want people to know. Yes i was not. I was not looked at. But i'm like okay if the detroit or his dad. But i don't know but sean is another one of those guys that you put you. I mean he put a wolf we the game against seattle. It would wolford. I mean doing awesome plays. He could dial up and and what they did. All that was that was beautiful. That was masterful. I just i sent. I sent techs right to look man that that was fun watching office. Football game looked on and Rams have all the answers to the bears. Were doing out there. Defensively and the bears. They know sloshing nine. Oh no slouch on defense. So they're the that's indicative of what we're gonna see you think There's no there's no cheese right there that we're going to actually see the she with the name. They have to dedicate a little bit more time to run me because you can't you can't run play action and not run the ball. I'm still trying to figure out. Why the linebackers in the sixties were by when rams couldn't run the ball just you know is this is i. I don't understand it but at some point in time you have to run the football. I'm sure they know that and When that dynamic is added in This team they're going to. They're going to be tough man. So who intimately offensively awesome died. But you couldn't tell lost that so who's the best team in the nfc west. Marshall what do you think. that's a tough one. That's a tough one right now It's skipped i. I can't really kick it. Like i want to say the rams but seattle look good arizona. Look good even the forty niners but the musical quarterbacks they look good i just. It's it's hard to say rich. i'm not going to put it out there Actually you know what i'm gonna go home. Go home with the rams. Do an and nobody can say anything to me about it. I'm gonna say the rams. That's what i'm saying. Because they were expected to and you know what they had to do they had the whole serve the other three teams in the west one and sunday night. They had to go out there against the bears and hold serve marshall faulk pro football hall of famer here on the rich eisen show. What do you think is going on with matt nagy and his decision making with fields and is it a film room thing. We're not talking about as he seeing a line. Why wouldn't he just throw this kid. In the deep end of the pool again you had a front row seat of peyton manning being thrown in the deep end of the pool and knowing how somebody can take lumps and get better and how. We're seeing herbert near to and and what last year obviously meant for him To a year to what do you think is going on with with the bears decision making. There's a part of me. I wanna speculate like i know about play but but i'm not in their locker room rates. But here's what i do know. Yes because because we saw this He has to understand Hey matt nagy. i know. You're probably being coy about it. But you liar when it comes to this stuff because you told us. Nick foles and mitch trubisky. You did before you did this before. The people don't understand we saw this just last year. We mitch trubisky. He's done this before and he stood at the podium mississippi exact same thing and now we have two different quarterback and he's doing the exact same theme at some point in time. Somebody gotta take. You're lying not what. Now you don't know who can run your off and best or you can't run an offense that's best for quarterback that you have that that that's how i look at rich. I just the kid feels when he is on the field. They team looks dynamic. Everybody is like they stand up a little taller. It's just a different dynamic. And if he can't see that as a head coach and the play caller even trouble. But it's what that's why i'm asking. What do you think it is. And that's why you gave the caveat of of you're not there right. So what do you think it could possibly be. That he is shown some sort of Inability to protect himself. Because he he's he's not seeing the will and our off or what. What do you think is. Here's what was that you know. I'm i'm i'm listening. I'm listening to college talk. Meh here's what college what's hip because probably works crystal. Ask all the questions. And here's lucy alluded to now. The one thing that any dave was there often. The offense line is not that good so what he's doing this. It's a lot of quick games and you. You have to be in order to run quick game consistently consistently And be good at it. You have to be a little season your pre step. We've gotta the on. You gotta know where you're going with. The ball and andy did a pretty good job at that. He got the ball on his hands staff. But as you continue to play you gotta standing there and make those You have to be dynamic and buy some time to get out of the pocket and andy. Andy doesn't bring to the table. Chris collins said that in the preseason justin field held a ball the longest quarterback.

The man who coined the phrase football heaven when he went into the pro football hall of fame ballot man in every way shape or form on the mercedes benz vans phone line. Here on the rich eisen show. Is marshall faulk. How're you to wait what's up. I'm good i'm talking to you. I'm better for talking to you. What what what struck your fancy and week one because you always watched the game in a way that that i normally don't see it as i mean allied limit. Let let's start with this. I'll be more specific to you What what do you think happened with green bay against the saints I feel so too. I was wondering if if everything was okay and green bay as far as like for the guy's really behind is so when the guy decided. Hey i don't wanna be here and then you decide you're coming back it kind of team off a little bit rich and i feel like that has something to do with as to take a minute for them to kinda get all hands on deck but all the feeling that they watched everybody everything that they watch the saints it has been so much drinking and dumped in the last couple of years and james winston actually showed them with the long ball. Look like and you see it. It was it was it was like. Wow sean payton this is you. Don't have to pick you apart. He can throw the ball over the top in that. It surprised dream bay now. It looks like the last time we saw green baker typically. It's the same thing too if you think about it. Same thing took him beat and Man green remake make some problems and roger said. Don't worry about it could coach state at the problem. Let's see where it goes rich. So let's let's unpack that a little bit one at a time here So let's take the last one. I because i know your Sean payton whisper. You're always have been you go way way back. To what san diego state. Right you and sean payton. Yeah back to the so mcquilken rigs. So what do you think he's going to do with james. That did we get a little look. Little look see Obviously can't guard. Mike is now got cova. he'll be back some point off the pub. What do you think this looks like. When it's all said and done. I think i think is janus. Put the league on on high alert. And it's it's amazing when you get a quarterback with the guys who can give him the answers like he had no he has the answers to what's going on and that's just that's that's what it looked like and we saw kinda bits and pieces of it last year but Man i didn't think he would come out like this and have this opportunity Just you know. And and and and i don't know maybe breeze with blue banged up. We didn't see a lot of the depot but man the seat to see the deep ball in that often is it like it struck leagues on on high alert. Like oh my god. Did you see that. 'cause i thought and then when you said The locker room. When somebody says i don't want to be there But now i'm here. I mean you know. Do you think they were guys in the packer locker room and took it personally. Didn't understand that it was twelve. Problem was with the front office and not them. You know i it. it's not. It's not who the problems with registered by. Hey if you don't wanna be here you don't wanna be here like i it. It is just that you don't wanna be here and when you that's that's that's it like you're not you're not pointing the finger at anybody. The one thing that we wanna know is in this game that everybody. That's playing here. They want to be here. That's what we want to know. I mean it's it's a you know we got a band together to tina's close together when together we talk all that team camaraderie stuff. But it's someone saying that they don't wanna be there and that someone just happened to be your quarterback albeit business. You stay out of it. You don't come another band money. He didn't wanna be wanna be there but he said he didn't want to be there because the front office made a maneuver to say. Your time is definitely running up here and his response was then. Then get me the hell out of here. If you're not gonna put me on the tb twelve plan to lie. I'm done on fits show you. I physically can't do it anymore. You know like happens rich rich. This is how it always happened. Okay you put person versus entity and the person who's going to always be wrong. Nobody nobody in green bay came out and say rogers. We don't.

"Be just fine and dandy but if they lose in front of the entire country to the detroit lions on monday night though it'd be to clunkers in a row to start this season and i know i'm kind of slag on the lines a little bit. When i say it would be a clunker. As opposed to the lions matching snap for sap snap the intensity of a team that made the nfc championship game last year. In the first home. Game the first home game of aaron rodgers back as a green bay packer even though he never left. And last week you could kind of throw out as an outlier had been weird for green bay to show up and jacksonville as opposed to the superdome and see the saints logo out there still though it looked like they thought they could just roll the. Footballs out. ahrends back twelve back. We're just gonna roll the new orleans saints and they got in the mouth if after all that if they don't flush it and respond exclamation points and lose to the lines and go to blow into sure. Their division is still weak but they would be behind the lions in that division and all of us will be wondering what the heck is going on and then week to week three would be filled with a lot of question marks which i'm sure green bay's us two weeks threes at san francisco weak force home against the steelers. Next couple of steps are lulu. It would be who've.

"And what i love about the show and getting to do a show that you guys have built in and continued to deliver the sports fans around the world every single day that when you come into the office in addition to getting some bitcoin Words of wisdom from my tail to fun things like marcia fox going to be on the show today okay. Cool i'm down to talk to the. Mvp the hall of famer the seven time pro bowler sounds good one. We put them in the second hour. And now it's that time joining us right. Now is the hall of fame. Marshall faulk. I feel like i'm living a dream playing the guys from my video games now. I'm getting chance to talk with him. It's ridiculous how are you. Marshall doing good doing good. I'll be going with you. Gotta do and well. We appreciate you taking some time and and i. I wanted to start with just the festivities over the weekend on ken. The joy for us to watch some of our favorite players get inducted. But what was it like for you to be there and to see these guys up close. Oh man that was awesome. You know and i think what made it even more special with the fact that last last last year we didn't get the have one and i it was. It was a big one too. You know we missed. The big. one continued centennial class. We have twenty guys go in And you saw saturday. Those guys were recognized And then sunday you know we've got the cost of twenty twenty one to go but Anytime we can get together and we get you know getting a room and stories. Start flowing Just information Our wise and You know it's it's it's just it's just great to be in that room I just look back. And i i think about the guys that i grew up watching the guys before that i watched film on. I think man it's awesome. It's just awesome. That could i get to be in this room with the pillars of the nfl. Were there any of the speeches in particular that that struck you as a michigan guy. Seeing charles woodson sing boys to men to his mother. Hit me real hard. Have out for you being out there. Were there any moments from the speeches. That really grabbed all of them. All of them. All of those speeches were impactful And if you you know if you listen to the message everybody everybody had. I mean they said in some way how we as a people need to find a way to live in this world and coexist in all not. Just get along. But but thrive along. And that's that's what that's what everybody's message Acted they said. Thank yous and and and and You know the people who helped him get there and all that stuff. Their message was pretty much the same and it shows that a lot of reflecting went went into them giving their speeches and what happened in twenty twenty and all the stuff that we were going through in our country Back together with better. Well said marshall marshall faulk joining the show. Ben lyons in for rich on the rich eisen show as we embark on this new season of big storyline. Obviously marshall vaccinations in which players are getting the vaccine which ones remain unvaccinated. And those an issue you're very passionate about and you're doing some work with the legends committee to inspire people to go out there and get vaccinated. What can you say about the work. You're up to now. Well the work that the work that i'm doing just Allowing people to give breath to give each other space. If i choose to be vaccinated. Let me choose to be that if someone else choose not to be back and let them choose not to be vaccinated. The beauty is in the education and explaining to people who may not be What that risk and the people who decide to be. What's at risk. Because i think sometimes we we all just want to be in the same little bubble at the same time. That's not going to ever happen. Individuals will be individuals and If you think about our great country you know. It's the fact that you get to be an individual here and so so we have to just find the space to allow People who make the decisions. And i think what we're doing wha- and what i'm doing is is is saying hey listen Don't listen to the their lives and the falsehoods. That's going around social media. And i'm a person i have. I have a lot to lose in. Hey i got vaccinated. Because i want to be responsible As a person whom i let the whole thing there's a lot of people walking around they wanna fist-bump they wanna hug they wanna do stuff. And and if there's a level of responsibility they i can say i've taken that stuff. That's what i wanna do. I wanna be responsible marshall. Oftentimes retired players will think about the game today in which players they would love to compete against or compete alongside. Obviously you never faced anything like this while you were playing in the nfl. Do you think back what those conversations might have been like with teammates in the locker room or on the planes when it comes to getting vaccinated and living in this covert world that we now are in. Well you know I'm gonna tell you it wasn't it wasn't like this but the do clay and do we get on. A plane is a safety. We travel after nine eleven. That was a big deal. That was a big deal and You know we had so many team meetings. I was wondering. Do we continue to play. And what's the best decision And and i think. I think even in that sense making the best decision collectively. It's always the better choice. And and here's the thing everybody's not going to be on board that that's the reality of it impossible for everybody to be on board but Once again i'm always go back to the people who decide that they want to do. Whatever opposite is what the majority are doing allowed in the space to do that. Just educate them on so they understand where they're at. That's what this whole campaign is marshall faulk amongst the nfl alumni speaking of to encourage people to get cove in nineteen. Vaccinations ben lines in for rich on the rich. Eisen show hitting back to the festivities out in canton ohio. You mentioned being around so many people there anybody that you see in particular that just warms your heart and get your star. Striker brings a smile to your face that you see offstage not necessarily one of the inductees but just somebody run into that always warms your heart palm and You know when you walk around in these and and the people that privately work there about live there you know they. They're proud that they they only lived in canton. And here's here's what. I'm gonna say this. Here's the best pillow ever your hall of famer. You walk around there every person that living at town there they embrace you with this welcome home. Welcome home and that's such a good feeling that such a good feeling Most of us in like we just wanna be remembered but when you realize that there's a museum with my likeness and what i do and what i done in the game of football my family's family family.

"That is the best. I love that movie night. Ball my dance. Which old ladies food date. that is. one of my favorite. That's easily my top. Three me one of the great do was it over when when the germans pearl harbor no and donald sutherland as the creepiest all time. Oh great story about him or the urban myth. Maybe he's confirmed it. He was offered some back end points or something on the movie to kind of go at a discount and he was like no i need the cash or he took the cash upfront which was like sixty or seventy five thousand dollars to appear in the movie and if he had taken the points on the end it was like fifty it ended up being like fifty million or something. Oh take the points. They took it. He just didn't he just thought the movie was going to be a flop while they're filming and he thought it was going to be terrible so he just took the cash you imagine. Well that's like louis banks yesterday was saying with greta. Hot american summer they never could ever believed the kind of cult classic with brian call classic but who knew and by the way you can watch that list banks interview with elizabeth banks on peacock. He didn't find it on youtube. The grand meister. I'm sure tweeted it out. Everywhere all of our interviews in rappaport. Earlier marshall faulk just now bruce feldman talking about college football or us talking about sugar cereal which i think was probably the best conversation of the day. That was a hard turn. Probably took a really rough right. Turn with a couple lanes of traffic to get out of that. Because it's been heavy. Wednesday wednesday sues. We do have one more call that we want to get to. We promised we that we'd empty the banks. Let's just real quick kevin philadelphia. How you doing man how you doing. That's taking my call. Thanks for holding on. That was talking about trying to lighten up a little bit. I'll give you my book and serial. After but i just wanted to comment on Simone's press conference. Generally how the whole thing is being covered today. First thing is kudos to her for for taking him speaking but like she needs to fire. Pr person like today You know she said quote unquote. The weight of the world was on her shoulders and like i want to play the immense pressure on her but it is the olympics. Right at the idea of the world games Eventually orange says he's not having fun like you know. I'm sorry but that's not a mental health issue It's just not like unfortunately when you walk off the floor in a team competition and you go to the podium and you say. I'm not having fun like that's quitting And like based on our press conference like. I quit this time with that being said. I don't see her as quit her. she's not one. She didn't with thirty six times. She metal twenty seven of them. Being go you know. Forget the armchair warriors. The average americans knows more successful than ninety nine percent of american professional athletes With that being said we got to find a middle ground here between calling her brave and calling her quarter I kinda feel like everyone's piling on. I go mental health mental health. But you know by the press conference. I don't think she said anything that actually alluded to a mental health issue And that's why. I think you know the pr guy. He could go And my favorite milk and cereal is gotta be cookies and cream or cookies. Whatever that's really. Click cookie chris rookie chris. Yeah yeah well. I think that's equally as important as what you had to say before i mean let's face it. I mean we got. We got to talk about cyril as much as we talked about that. And i think. I appreciate your opinion. I really appreciate you hanging on. That's what i really appreciate and thank you for that costco. Good point. I mean i i. Here's point. I see his point. She said you know i wasn't doing with an injury. The only injury was to my pride. But if you're doubting yourself in a sport like this and get hurt the doubt can lead to you not executing the way you need to which then in turn we to serious injury so. She took the necessary steps that she felt she needed to do. And i think we have to accept that and support that. And i want to say it's important to hear your comments and we hear them and we appreciate them and we're open to them because we have to be open to communication. That's the whole point. If you don't agree with me that's fine but respect my opinion and will respect yours. Go look at kathryn burns twitter. Feed go read that through. Because as i brought in i brought this up earlier. Put your mind into a different place and think of those twists and think of those turns and think about that equilibrium. And then you come back to me and then you opine whether she's having fun or not something's going on on this kid's head and she deserves the space. She deserves the space to be and let her being olympian. Whether it's in the all around individual maybe she comes back. I hope she comes back. Let her have the space to breathe people. It's called compassion and apparently it's called cookie. Chris so i'm just saying it's been a great show..

"Getting van it. It's amazing it's it's amazing that who they pull that crap with right. That's that's the thing that gets me. It's amazing that who they play about. Clap like i was just thinking like okay so matthew stafford just went to a better team with the better coach and the better situation. Did he take less money. Well the price of living is very high in malibu. We can't ask him to take a cut. Listen he'd been balling over budget for a long time. Let's be real now now. You get on better team. He should've went in and say. Hey you guys want ten million. We've got you guys. Wanted to. Julio jones i give your kid julio he should have been doing anything but we don't we just we just don't we. Just don't ask that from the position. I mean it's just it. It's it's i. I just don't i don't get it i don't get it. Yeah and you would think green bay knowing aaron. It's the seventeenth year with the team. Like they know his personality they had to have known. This wasn't gonna fly with him. But my home i just left and nobody said this. Because the totality we're thinking about aaron rodgers leading like that's what we're thinking about. Hey aramark just played awful in the game. They lost because of his interception. No doubt i'm just saying it in normally when they lose it's not his fault right. It's just not his fault. it's not it's like office the line or district You know or t v could nobody but i. I'm just going like tom. Brady outplayed him. This wasn't errands decision to kick a field goal. Either well it was errors reason why they were taking a field goal. I didn't run it in. i guess. Hey i'm samantha. Play the game we we. We play the game. You open yourself up for everything you know. It's like these decisions. Need to be made and the questions be asked. Are you surprised that he showed up. Are you surprised at aaron's back a lot of money on the table when people talk about. Oh yeah you're gonna sit out my money on the table okay. What'd she say. My you showed to camp and don't do nothing that you not show up a lot of money. Because they were check that he would after right. I mean it. It started with thirty. I mean that's a. That's a check if he sat out. I mean that's that's a lot of coin yup You know and here's the thing where else Where else like he. He didn't have destination like he's not like he had a place he could go. You just didn't have. That doesn't have it. Some stuff has to happen for for things to happen way. I mean if they hadn't drafted tree last and they san francisco would be a lock Maybe they still are to give their kid a couple years. Maybe sit behind him. Maybe next year. Who knows in. Also marshall your business guy. A team has to draft a good quarterback. You have to have a plight. It doesn't always have to be personal. Does it exactly exactly it. It doesn't it doesn't. But but i. But i'm i'm going to assume betty asked questions and they told him mind your business and they didn't give him the answers that he wanted because he's a level headed guy is not you know he. And that's that's when you know when the common started coming out. Obviously you know casualties everything around me. He won't care pro football hall of famer. Marshall faulk doing here on the rich eisen. Show suzy shuster in for rich marshall. Curious on your thoughts on simone biles. We've had more calls today than i can. Remember people wanna pine on her. What's your thought as a professional athlete looking at this twenty-four-year-old with the weight of the world under shoulders saying that she had to step away. Well here here's what. I'm going to say all right. I don't know the people not going to like this. And they want hear anything We asked professional athlete. Let's just say things are going right. Normally it was just like we would never whereas we were scared but now we have this this. You know. i'm a step away mentally. I'm not ready and and there's a. There's a mentally something wrong eventually. i'm not ready. I don't think they're the same thing and we don't know what it is. We don't know it could be serious. I mean only talking. She locked in olympic. Wow man that's all that bad you know but we have to we. We have to give athletes space to all to on and understand that we go through things mentally as well but as athletes. We also have to understand that. You know let. Let's not let's not. Let's not use that in a sense as a potential out when we maybe not at our best so people can't take shelter or things are question and that's the dynamic that we're in now when you look at it. It's like because if if you don't want to give any analysis analysis on it because if if something mentally wrong with her which we'll never find out you don't want to be the person who people come after but just looking at it from both sides athletes side being the person who played high press situation and stunk it up before man..

What do you make of. What's going on there. I think they made up and they don't wanna tell us you know it's like it's like you don't wanna tell your friend when the girlfriend you broke out with. You said you weren't going to get back with her and you do and you know not to tell your friends so you you just you just say a bunch of stuff and that's what this sounded like today I just if it's not personnel. And what is it. I just wanna know what else affects. It affects him doing his job and at this point. Hasn't he earned the right to be in the conversation. There's no packer quarterback who's been there longer this seventeenth season. He is who he is. Hasn't he earned the right to be in the conversation. All about it out without a doubt. I mean i i think so And the the thing about it is Why wasn't he like. Who does it. Act the quarterback like you quoted by over the head coach. I just just those my mind. these these are the problems. These are the problems in decisions and and I'm gonna say that. Obviously i think the glass two guys de la carte blanche to this kind of stuff. You know And and gregg popovich in sports. I don't think anybody else can pull these stunts sense when you look at. What's happened with them to with kawhi leonard wanting to leave san antonio and then tom brady leaving and going to win in tampa. It's like people are questioning you know. 'cause we're we're not talking about we're not talking about the the spurs in the playoffs right now. We're just not and and last year you know we'll see 'cause some different stuff you just have to handle the different. And i don't know i i just i just felt like green bay was always a functional organization. We never heard these kind of things coming out of green bay and here we are. I blame it on the shareholders. Mike del tufo is a shareholder. So i think it's just bad management and badge shareholding. Del tufo to dokoupil. You were probably like you're like oh what exactly. Yeah adam schefter broke that story. I mean almost like it was like it was like you were here lie. It was the first time add a broker story. I was like atoms and lying seems ridiculous. It seems ridiculous. I mean adam. Adam breaks a lot of stories. And i'm like all mad shefty this i was like. He's lying it it was. It was unbelievable. Marshall marshall what do you think about re richmond on this too about The tom brady effect like tom brady. Basically saying i'm out. I'm leaving new england. And then doing it. His way going to tamp them accommodating him in basically bringing in his friends gronk and leonard fournette antonio brown and then they won a super bowl. And then all these other quarterbacks rogers russell wilson looked at that and went Why can't we do that here. I want some of that. Yeah well well. I'm gonna say this i'm gonna say more than anything. I'm gonna put it just to add a little twist to it. It was the fat that although tom still wanted to play new england what they were like. Okay let's do a terms way after all he had done. And if i'm looking i'm like okay. He's one this means super bowl. Offline this mini. Hold on wait. They got rid of far for me. I gotta get outta here right. I wanna go somewhere where they gonna let me kinda have some say and the reality is that's what he's looking for. He's looking for more say now whether whether he's going to have that i don't know it's it's tough. Man and players are players are starting understanding the dynamical of of the power that they have the game. And let me say that the quarterback because of how much they're paying them and how we putting we have put so much onus on the position to where i mean they control the game. They literally controlled again. Marcel power shifted in a keeps shifting in the national football league. Devante adams was asked today if he would take a discount. If rogers back in twenty twenty two he said that's not going to happen. What other profession do you see. Were you take less than what. You've been earned. I've earned the right to be paid the highest in the league. If somebody had asked you to take a discount what was. Oh god what would you have said to them. Marshall faulk hey man. I'd looking to discount from my last year in college. All the way down to when i play little all that was discount. You got to see free football time to get paid. It's time to get paid. That's right them. I know discount. Walk walk into neiman. Marcus and that store disco. Yeah go vote try that. Go walk in the saxon. That's discount off stacks without you got a whole different. They don't even do. They got a whole different store. You want discount. That's that's what i'm talking about. You don't do that this. Why did you put in the work. Why did you put in a work..

James Harrison says Le'Veon Bell should return to Pittsburgh Steelers, then fake injury to avoid games

"If you're like me in there, some of you that are, you've got levian bell on your fantasy football team, and you're just waiting. And the way this thing is set up to go is that levian Bill wants to record the twenty nineteen season as service time, which means he doesn't have to show up until November the six, twenty eight season. Yeah. Or or week ten of the season. James Harrison, his teammate today suggested he should come in November, sixteenth, and then faking injury. So he doesn't have to play a single game for the Steelers this year and still becomes an unrestricted free agent after the year. Now, here's a, here's something interesting if the Steelers trade levian bell and there are rumors that they're, they're going to trade him or at least are feeling teams up. The jets are one team that that expressed interest, they would receive a third round compensatory pick in the twenty nineteen draft the upcoming draft. Okay, if a trade him if they trade him, okay. If they just wave him, just say, were sending the franchise tag you go or ever. You want health fellow well met, you get you get a third round compensatory pick in the twenty nineteen draft if they wait until after the season and after the Super Bowl and they decide levian bell leaves, they get a competitor. Ori pick, but it's not till twenty twenty. So in order to get a pick in this upcoming draft, they've got a trade or waive him during this season. So there's incentive there actually is because if you trade 'em you're taking on another salary and other contract, James Connors been pretty effective in very effective. Yeah. Who would have thought that it would end that way? You know there's enough teams that like really could use a running back like Seattle could really use a running back. I could like I, if if you could send him there, Detroit like desperately needs a running, especially a guy but the, but the problem is the same for anybody else. Are you gonna give him? Are you gonna pay him big, right? If he's unrestricted, free it. And how much money are you willing to pay? Levian bell. I'm trying to think what is what is girls number Todd, Gurley nineteen. I think he got nineteen million and I think fifty million guaranteed is levian bell. Gonna get fifty million dollars guaranteed out there. I'm not sure that that's their anywhere else. Yeah, I would see because I think if he got traded, he'd have to prove his worth in running backs. Frankly, don't get traded that often, Eric dickers- and got traded Marshall. Faulk got traded. Even if he gets trade like you can't really trade for them. Because the situation is the same. He can still hold out to week ten and record a year of service time. Agent contract you once he has no incentive to come
